Abssac LEAD's the way....

Abssac Limited will be showing its full range of precision lead screws and nuts at the forthcoming Engineering Design Show at the Ricoh Centre. (Stand No : E35) As one of the only suppliers on the market to truly offer a miniature lead screw product, Abssac overcomes significant technical obstacles and once again manages to supply what other lead screw manufacturers cannot.

With well over 30 years’ experience a recent application used a 3mm and 2mm diameter stainless steel trapezoidal thread form, both with a 1mm lead. The precision drives also included bespoke nut designs which accurately translated rotary to linear motion. The nuts were machined from Turcite and incorporated unique attachment tangs. Turcite was suggested as the nut material for its self-lubricating characteristics. To reduce operational drag on the 2mm diameter screw, the lead screw was supplied coated with Teflon. The final parts measured 30mm and 20mm in length and were supplied complete with machined end journals for motor and bearing connection. Abssac was able to supply the parts on budget and have exceeded reliability and performance demands set by the customer.

Abssac has expanded its lead screw ranges to incorporate the machining facility to supply any type of thread form that you may require. In fact Abssac can supply screws up to 120mm diameter and up to 3meters long can also be supplied. Combine this with the ability to offer further journal end machining, gun drilling, screw hardening and special coating treatments, gives Abssac the competitive edge.
