Selecting the appropriate nut for your lead screw

Selecting the appropriate nut for your lead screw doesn’t have to be a complicated task. ABSSAC provides a range of standard nut designs that can accommodate various linear applications, whether they require precision or are of industrial nature.

Moreover, if you need a nut with a specific attachment or load configuration, ABSSAC can assist you in finding the right solution.

Ensuring a high-quality linear application product hinges on the ability to supply a professionally tapped nut that perfectly matches the thread form of the lead screw provided. Often, screw stock and specialised nut designs are sourced from different suppliers, leading to issues such as poor fit, excessive wear, backlash, and reduced overall efficiency of the linear system.

When an engineer requires a more sophisticated nut design, it typically signifies the part’s critical importance in the machine’s functionality. By sourcing both the lead screw and nut from ABSSAC, potential manufacturing challenges in this area can be eliminated. Additionally, ABSSAC’s experienced engineers can collaborate with designers to incorporate various features into the nut design with confidence.

ABSSAC offers an extensive range of lead screw sizes, spanning from 4mm diameter up to 200mm, with a diverse selection of metric and imperial leads per diameter. These lead screws are available in different formats, including cold rolled, whirled, machined, and ground styles, manufactured from materials such as stainless steel, low carbon steel, and even exotic materials when necessary. As for the nuts, ABSSAC can produce them using advanced engineering plastics like Delrin, PTFE, or Turcite, in addition to standard options like bronze, aluminium bronze, and various steels.
