How to Determine the Best Leadscrew Types for Your Applications

A leadscrew is designed to transform rotational motion into rectilinear propagation, which results in power transmission. Hence, leadscrews are also known as power or translation screws. Leadscrews have large load carrying capabilities and do not require any specialized machinery to manufacture. As the overall dimension is small, they have a compact structure and facilitate noiseless, maintenance-free operation. Some of their key applications are raising heavy loads, obtaining accurate motion during machining operation, and loading a specimen.

The leadscrew, the nut, and a part to hold the nut/screw in place form the essential parts of these power screws. Typically, the operation of a leadscrew depends on the holding arrangement. Therefore, thread geometry plays a vital role in its selection. In fact, leadscrews are generally classfied into different types based on their thread geometry: square threads, acme threads, and buttress threads.

Square Threads:

Square thread is one of the most common types of power screws used for power/force transmissions. They help in minimizing the friction between the screw and the nut. With box-like ridges and zero thread angles, they offer higher intrinsic efficiency than acme threads. In addition, they do not provide any thrust or radial busting pressure on the nut. These square threads are machined using a single-point cutting tool through a slow and intricate machining process.

Though square threads offer greater efficiency, there are some constraints. As square threads retain larger root of threads, they cannot handle large loads as well as additional radial loads. The screw's strength is relatively dependent on the thickness of the thread at the core diameter, which is lower in square threads. Furthermore, the machining process of a square thread is expensive compared to the multi-point cutting of acme and buttress threads.

Acme Threads:

Acme threads are special types of trapezoidal threads with a thread angle of 29°, providing ease of manufacturing. They differ from trapezoidal threads only by a difference in their thread angle. However, both are machined using a multi-point cutting tool, which is more economical than a single-point cutting tool.

As the thickness of acme threads is comparatively higher at the core diameter, this type of leadscrew offers greater strength and can handle larger loads than square threads. They use split-type of nuts to compensate wear. Acme threads are commonly used for transmission devices in machine tools. The only disadvantage of using acme threads is the presence of frictional force between threads, which results in a lower efficiency compared to square threads.

Buttress Threads:

Buttress thread is another type of leadscrew typically used in industrial machinery. Due to the leadscrews' asymmetrical structure, they are capable of handling and resisting unidirectional axial loads that act along the axis of the screws. The buttress type is similar to a square thread with zero thread angle. However, these buttress threads have greater strength than the acme and square threads, as the thickness is comparatively higher at the base.

These threads, machined using multi-point cutting tool, offer higher efficiency compared to acme threads. Normally, a split nut is provided to compensate the wear that occurs due to friction. They are well suited for connecting tubular components that carry large loads. Additionally, buttress threads are widely used as drive threads in hydraulic presses.
