  • A Critical Look at Acme, Ball, and Roller Screws for Linear Motion
    actuators: Acme, ball, and roller. The differences are in thread shape and the design and operation of the matching nut. But which type of screw best suits your application? Here's a concise look at all three. screws use strong threads with generally trapezoidal teeth which are usually rolled onto
  • Which Screw? Picking the Right Technology
    . There are three primary types of screws used in linear actuators: acme, ball and roller. The differences are in the design of the thread shape along with the design and operation of a matching nut. These differences within each type of screw design will be detailed later in the following sections. To provide

    as small as 0.375-in. diameter and 0.125-in. lead with 90% efficiency. (Acme screws are typically just 30 to 60% efficient.) Single-nut screws have 170-lb dynamic load capacity and 1,600-lb static load capacity. Load capacities double when using two nuts. The next time you're faced with a design
