Choosing the correct nut for the lead screw

Choosing the correct nut for the lead screw,  need not be a headache. ABSSAC has standard nut designs to suit most linear applications whether precision or industrial and when you want a nut to incorporate some special form of attachment or load ABSSAC can help.

The ability to supply a professionally tapped nut, matched to the thread form of the supplied lead screw is the key to supplying quality linear application products. In many cases screw stock and specialised nut designs are purchased from different sources which can lead to poor fitting of the nut, excessive wear, backlash and low efficiency to the whole linear package. When the engineer requires a more sophisticated nut design the chances are, the part has more importance in the workings of the machine. By supplying both items from the one source, ABSSAC eliminates this area of potential build issues. The designer can also utilise the experience of ABSSAC engineers to incorporate many features into the nut design in complete confidence.

ABSSAC offers a vast range of lead screw sizes range from 4mm diameter up to 200mm with a wide range of both metric and imperial leads per diameter. Abssac supplies, cold rolled, whirled, machined and ground style lead screw formats in stainless steel, low carbon steel and exotic materials if required. Nuts can also be manufactured from advanced engineering plastics such as Delrin, PTFE or Turcite as well as Bronze, Aluminium Bronze and steels as standard.
