dryspin® lead screws and nuts, now competitively priced for the automotive industry, are ideal for actuating various automotive applications, such as windows, seats and air dams. We use our iglide® materials — which are tribologically-optimized polymer blends that consist of base materials for wear resistance, reinforcing fibers for high forces and solid lubricants that eliminate the need for external grease — to create the nuts. Additionally, we offer low-fogging nut materials to reduce outgassing. These self-lubricating components resist dirt and corrosion and are maintenance-free.

dryspin® lead screw assemblies also help reduce the weight of your vehicle for greater fuel efficiency and reduce squeaking, rattling and other noises, allowing for a more comfortable ride with fewer distractions. We offer conventional trapezoidal and ACME lead screws as well as proprietary dryspin® high helix lead screws with a flatter thread angle to optimize efficiency.

If you’re looking for a functional prototype, we can 3D print lead screw nuts and spindles at our North American headquarters in East Providence, Rhode Island. We use our SLS printers and engineered plastic materials to create low-friction, durable parts that are three times more wear-resistant than standard SLS printed parts.
