The ANSI/ASME B1.5 ACME Screw Threads Standard provides

  • General Purpose ACME, and
  • Centralizing ACME

Centralizing Acme threads have limited clearance at the major diameters of both the internal and external threads and are used extensively for feed screws. Restricted clearance enables a bearing at the major diameter of the thread to preserve alignment of the thread axis preventing wedging on the flanks and part sagging.
