Benefits of Using Standard Freewheeling Lead Screw Nuts

Zhane Isom by Zhane Isom

Standard freewheeling lead screw nuts from Helix Linear Technologies are available in both threaded and flanged configurations and are designed to fit screws ranging from 2 mm - 25 mm in diameter.

Standard freewheeling lead screw nuts from Helix Linear Technologies are available in both threaded and flanged configurations and are designed to fit screws ranging from 2 mm - 25 mm in diameter, featuring:

  • Low torque design
  • Internally lubricated nut material
  • In stock for quick delivery
  • Economical pricing

The high strength and inherent lubricity of our Helital™ nut material results in a product life that exceeds conventual material selections.

  • Material: Helital™ (ACETAL/PTFE blend)
    • Tensile Strength at 70°F: 8,000 PSI
    • Compressive Strength at 70°F: 16,000 PSI
    • PV Limit: 2,700 Lubricated
    • Coefficient of friction: 0.10 Lubricated

It can be very easy to machine the different plastics that lead screw nuts are manufactured for, compared to ball screws and ball nuts. In order to stop this from happening, try to include as many parts attached to the nut into its design as possible. Typically, nuts are assembled out of bar stock, plastic sheets, or blocks.

If standard nut configurations don't get the job done, we manufacture custom freewheeling nuts based on your shape, size, and material requirements.
