Understanding ACME Threaded Rods
ACME threaded rods are primarily used for pivoting motions on different types of machine tools. They are ideal for generating power through motion. The characteristics of the ACME rod make them unique from other rod products:
- Thread angle is at 29 degree, while the crest and root are flat.
- The shape of the thread is wide, thus allowing the rod to take on greater loads
- The thread design makes the rods easier to machine
- They are a suitable replacement for square threads
- Acme threading provides benefits of fast manufacturing, and extended tool life
Major-IPC offers ACME threaded rods that provide benefits of high strength and immense load bearing features. They can be manufactured with a variety of features according to an equipment requirements. If you would like to know more about our products, please feel free to contact us .
