ACME Lead Screws are one of the most widely used forms of Imperial Lead Screw in the precision engineering market. These components are ideal for high precision actuation. Despite metric components slowly phasing out imperial equivalents, Imperial Lead Screws still remain particularly popular.
Similarly to Metric Trapezoidal Lead Screws, the ACME threads on these Lead Screws feature a trapezoidal tooth shape for increased tooth strength, but feature a more acute tooth angle of 29°. To identify an ACME Thread form, an ACME Leaf Thread Gauge can be used.
ACME Anti-Backlash Lead Screw Nuts
Anti-Backlash Nuts are also available, the anti-backlash mechanism of these Nuts ensures that the teeth of a Lead Screw mechanism consistently remain in contact, preventing backlash - the temporary loss of motion caused by reversed operation.
