ACME Lead screws and nuts

We manufacture your custom-made ACME lead screws and nuts according to your drawing. Thanks to our innovative and high-quality manufacturing process, micro-pockets are formed on the flank surface, which is ideal for the adhesion of lubricants. As a result, our ACME threaded spindles have a longer service life and reduced risk of the dreaded stick-slip effect.

Acme Screws at Work

ACME power screws are used in different applications such as:

  • Offshore lifting platforms
  • As a lifting screw or power screw for jacking frames
  • As a power transmitter in mechanical presses
  • In screw pumps, injection machines, extruders
  • As a spooling guide in winches
  • Aircraft flaps
  • Downhole equipment in the oil and gas industry

Your Tailor Made ACME Screw

Additionally to the standard ACME power screw and matching nut, we are able to produce thread dimensions that go beyond the standard. Our leadscrews with the corresponding sets of lifting- and safety nuts include all the necessary turning, milling, and end machining operations, as well as surface and quenching treatments.

If you need an ACME screw with multi-start threads, this is also possible, with any number of starts your application requires. This differentiates us from other leadscrew manufacturers – we focus on your individual needs.
