Acme Screws and Looney Tunes Cartoons: Bridging the Gap Between Perception and Precision

When people hear the word Acme, many conjure up the image of the Acme brand products used by Wile E. Coyote. While Acme products may have had a generic connotation and produced substandard results as demonstrated in the Coyote's experience, Acme, as we know it today, is the exact opposite.

Captive vs. Non-Captive Linear Stepper Motor Actuators

For a lead screw linear actuator to convert rotary motion into linear motion, there must be an anti-rotation element on the nut design where the lead screw is rotating. The anti-rotation feature applies to an external linear actuator design as well. However, for captive and non-captive linear actuators where the nut is integral to the rotor and confined within the motor, the lead screw is prevented from rotating to translate rotary motion into linear motion.
