Precision rolled with a 29 degree ACME thread form provides both efficiency of motion and load strength. Formed by a cold rolling process the lead screw material has a smooth finish for reduced friction and a strong grain structure for driving high loads. Maximum length of screw as is 144 inch on this imperially sized product. ACME thread sizes range between 3/16" and 5/8" in outside diameter and conform to ANSI B1.5 and B1.8 thread standards. The product is available in single or multiple start thread forms.
This product is part of our legacy range.
For our updated range of Lead Screws:
This cold rolled formed lead screw material has a smooth finish for reduced friction and a strong grain structure for driving high loads. As standard the maximum length of screw as is 144inch (365mm) on this imperially sized product. (Diameter 1.0inch)
Precision rolled ACME threads have a 2G thread fit. The lead error over the length of the screw is 0.006" maximum per foot.
If you are interested in the using the acme screw ranges, do not forget that we also supply the full range of linear guides and rails which can provide the load support in your linear mechanism. Offering excellent rigidity and parallelism during operation the guides can be used in both vertical and horizontal planes.

Greases and Lubricants
We provide a full range of quality, low cost lubricants for all our linear products including low vapour pressure greases for clean room and vacuum applications. For example the new Trigel line is specifically formulated to offer a lubrication solution for a wide range of linear motion applications. Please ask for further details. Grease features include, Temperature range -30°C to 150°C, Revolutionary multi-complex soap technology, Greatly extended lubrication intervals typically 3 times longer than conventional soap thickened greases. Good corrosion resistance. Some greases are supplied blue in colour for high visibility.
