Selecting the Right Lead Screw for Linear Motion Application

There are many applications of lead screws. Mostly, they are used in linear actuators. In addition to this, lead screws are of different types and sizes. Selecting the right lead screw not only makes the job easier but also ensures high quality and efficiency. Linear motion is a movement in a straight path. Linear motion solutions are designed in a way that they take advantage of this type of movement in order to carry out many tasks. The problem arises when it comes to the selection of the right screw for the job. There is a great importance in carrying out a task effectively and efficiently. Therefore, it is good to choose the right type of lead screw for the job. There are factors that a person should consider when selecting a lead screw for a particular task. They include: Thrust Thrust refers to the force required to move the screw as well as its load. Thrust is of two types. The first type of thrust is known as peak thrust, which occurs during acceleration and is experienced for a… Continue reading
