Helix Linear Technologies produces a full line of precision miniature lead screws for applications that demand micron-level positioning in incredibly small envelopes. These miniature designs enable our clients to build highly repeatable actuation systems. Our precision miniature lead screws can be combined with internally lubricated anti-backlash nuts for zero positioning lash. Lead screw diameters in our miniature product line range from 1.6 mm (.062") to 4 mm (.16"). 

Helix Linear fabricates all thread rolling and thread die tooling in-house, allowing us to manufacture virtually any size screw with industry-leading accuracy.  Miniature lead screw applications, including robotic surgery, medical devices, laser/optical focusing, liquid dispensing systems, and drone automation, demand this type of high precision.

"We use 2mm diameter lead screws from Helix Linear Technologies in our robotic surgery equipment, and they are the most accurate screws in the market." says a Helix Linear medical device manufacturing client.

 

Additional options include:
