Material choice is very important for high-tech performance, and that goes for leadscrews too. Easy is a real lightweight. The spindle unit consists of a rolled aluminum lead screw with a friction-resistant coating (hard anodised) and a high-performance technopolymer nut. The light-weight spindles reach efficiencies of over 80% and are ideal for challenging climatic conditions with large temperature fluctuations and in high-load situations. The thread geometry makes the spindle unit relatively insensitive to dirt and tilting moments and the special profile prevents the nut from jamming.
Despite being low weight and having a density of 2.7 g per cm³, this high strength, light aluminium metal has many positive material properties. The outcome is impressive - one metre of Easy 16 mm x 90 mm screw weights only 0.533 kg compared to the same one metre steel spindle which weighs 1.549 kg.
The aluminium threads are significantly strengthened by thread rolling and are made even more resistant by hard anodising the outer surface layer. This reduces additional reduction of the friction coefficient and also outstanding sliding properties which, coupled with the corrosion protection, ensures long service life.
Easy lightweight leadscrews are ideal for increased loads in challenging climatic conditions with high temperature fluctuations or difficult environments such as dirt contamination, tilting moments or limited opportunity for lubrication.
Perfect harmony: ideal alloying of raw material, special thread rolling tools made in-house for the Eichenberger rolling process and perfect cold forming. We bring the key components and processes into harmony to achieve the perfect material flow for optimised thread profiles.
Carry Kugelgewindetriebe Typ F sind mit neu entwickelten Endkappen Kugelrückführungen versehen, die völlig in den Mutternkörper integriert sind. Sie sind aus Kunststoff gefertigt und erfüllen gleichzeitig die Funktion des Schmutzabstreifers.
Weight-saving is an important factor in almost every field of application. The highly efficient Easy leadscrew allows for lower power motors to be used, considerably reducing both costs and energy consumption. Easy convinces with its high load capacity and the excellent pairing between the aluminium spindle and the high-resistance plastic nut.
