ACME Lead Screws and Nuts

ACME Lead Screws and Nuts

Our Acme lead screws are made of durable, high-quality stainless steel. Unlike electroplating, the anti-corrosive properties of stainless steel are not subject to frictional wear, which makes these lead screws ideal for corrosive environments. Acme lead screws are an adaptable, cost-effective solution to many linear motion applications, so to ensure that you get exactly what you need, we offer a variety of sizes and number of starts, as well as various styles of mating nuts.

Fairloc Clamping Hub

FAIRLOC® - The Integral Fastener

Fairloc® is an all inclusive clamping system that connects pulleys, gears, couplings and other components to the shaft. Unlike set screws Fairloc® does not mar shafts and more importantly, it uses the whole hub to tightley fasten components resulting in reduced wobble and misalignment.

Shafloc Camping System

SHAFTLOC® - A Superior Way to Fasten Parts

Shaftloc® uses outer and inner sleeves to securely clamp components to the shaft. The asymmetrical thread creates large amplifications of force resulting in substantial torque transmission capability between the component and the shaft.
