Leadscrews, Screw Jacks and Other Devices: Application and Selection (1 credit hours)
This course is an overview of the basic design considerations for selecting and applying leadscrews.  Included in this course are descriptions of the most common leadscrew configurations and their main components.  The main configurations include threaded nut, roller nut and ball bearing leadscrews.  This course explores some of the design compromises that are necessary in designing and selecting leadscrews.  Load capacity, accuracy, repeatability, resolution and backlash are discussed.  Screw Jacks, mechanical jacks and linear actuators are described.  The differences between the various configurations are explained.  Examples of some installations are included.
