The ACME Lead Screw System

September 14, 2017

One of the most common lead screw geometries in North American manufacturing is the ACME lead screw system. Designed with a trapezoidal shape, a flank angle of 29 degrees and a higher pitch than fastening screws, ACME lead screws were made for applications requiring frequent positioning, including power transmission applications moving high axial loads. High-performance plastic ACME nuts are also ideal to use in an ACME system. 

Learn about speeds and loads, lead screw geometry, nut materials, benefits of an ACME system, relevant industries and more.
