ACME Lead Screws are one of the most widely used forms of Lead Screw in the precision engineering market. These components are ideal for high precision actuation.
Similarly to 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°. A smaller tooth angle results in increased efficiency.
ACME Lead Screw Nuts
Standard ACME Lead Screw Nuts are manufactured from lightweight and self-lubricating Turcite X Thermoplastic. These components feature a threaded section, which is designed either for direct installation into a pre-tapped hole, or for use with AccuGroup's Lead Screw Nut Mounts.
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.
