Custom Lead Screws

Lead screw customization options

While the full selection of standard Thomson lead screws and nuts continues to meet the needs of countless linear motion designs, some applications’ requirements call for these components to be customized. Whether it is material or geometry, our custom lead screws and nuts provide great flexibility to help you achieve a “just-right” solution.

Our experienced engineers can assist you to ensure your part selection is right the first time, while our support staff oversees proper initial application and comprehensive support once installed.

Lead nut geometries

  • Mounting features (flange, thread, press fit, etc.)
  • Body shapes and special features (cylindrical, rectangular, integrated with adjacent components, etc.)
