For movement under large loads Nuweld acme threads are precision machined and produced from AISI 1215 Low Carbon Bright steel. Extensively used for a variety of purposes these threads are used for controlled movements in machine tools, CNC drive systems, testing machines, jacks, aircraft flaps and other mechanical systems. Acme screws have much better wear properties, load capabilities and tolerances than standard threaded rods. With thicker and wider threads acme rods also operate better in environments with dirt and debris.
*Acme threads available from 1/2 Inch to 1.1/2 Inch diameter. We can produce Acme threads and Nuts to various lengths and specifications, please get in touch with your requirements
