External screw threads are synonymous with worms but operate with internal screw threads to change rotational movement into lateral (axial) movement. It is a more positive motion than a rack and pinion drive but it has its limitations.

Our maximum external screw thread diameter  is 250mm (10 inches) and maximum pitch 20MOD (1.25DP, 2.5 inches circular pitch).  We can also cut maximum 200mm (7.87 inches) diameter * 3m (118 inches) long. The maximum number of starts 20.

Our maximum internal screw thread diameter is 200mm (8 inches) * 200mm (8 inches) long and maximum number of starts 8. The maximum pitch 12mm (0.5 inches circular pitch)
