igus (East Providence, RI) now offers a “quick-release” nut for its DryLin lead screw tables. According to the company, this makes format adjustments easier and faster by reducing the number of revolutions required to position the carriage on a lead screw assembly with a small pitch. When equipped with the quick-release nut, a DryLin lead screw table can be adjusted by simply pushing a button, which releases the linear slide from the thread. Once the adjustments have been made, the partial thread locks back when the push-button is released.
