Design features

Eichenberger Rondo round-thread leadscrews are a true alternative to conventional trapezoidal screws. They deliver outstanding efficiency and quiet running due to their round-thread profile.
Made of corrosion-protected steel or alternatively aluminium, the screws are combined with high-performance technopolymer flange nuts (outer dimensions equal those of Speedy standard flange nuts)

Materials

Screw

  • standard: corrosion-protected steel
    1.4021 (X20Cr13)
  • on request:
    steel 1.0401 (C 15)
    aluminium
  • on request:
    coating to reduce sliding friction

Nut

  • standard:
    EX100 white
  • on request:
    iglidur® J *
    other materials

* iglidur® is a registered trademark of igus® GmbH

Operational temperatures

  • EX100 –40 to +60 °C
  • iglidur® J * –50 to +90 °C

Lead accuracy

  • standard:
    G9 ≤ 0.1 mm/300 mm (in accordance with DIN 69051)
    on request:
    other lead accuracies

Efficiency
The efficiency η depends on the helix angle and reaches values from ~0.3 up to 0.5

Application examples for Rondo round-thread leadscrews

Eichenberger Speedy, Easy and Rondo leadscrews are suitable for numerous applications: On the one hand, for shorter lifts, they are a great substitute for belt drive systems because of their lower engineering effort. On the other hand, they are also an excellent substitute for hydraulic and pneumatic lift cylinders because they can be freely accelerated and positioned, and work independently of secondary energy sources. Thanks to high Efficiency and excellent value for money, they are an ideal alternative to trapezoidal screws or ballscrews in particular areas of use.
