Potential future applications are expected to include transcatheter heart valves and abdominal and thoracic aortic aneurysm stent grafts. DSM Stand 5B43 Aluminium leadscrews Eichenberger Gewinde AG manufactures round and high-helix leadscrews out of aluminium by means of the cold- forming process. These corrosion- resistant equipment components, when combined with plastic flange nuts, allow unlubricated operation in certain applications. This combination of elements additionally exhibits high wear resistance and a low coefficient of friction and offers the advantage of requiring no maintenance. Because aluminium has less than one-third the weight of steel, its use in equipment drive systems provides an energy-efficient alternative. The manufacturer of the aluminium leadscrews is able to achieve an optimal balance of material strength and tensile strength through the aluminium alloying process, and it uses production technology that provides controlled and accurate cold-forming of the screw threads. Thus, stringent component Cendres+Métaux SA P.O.
