    Determining what diameter to use for lead screw

    Russell Waseem

      Hi everyone,

       

      I want to determine which size to use for a lead screw that is capable of withstanding a load of 250lbs... How would I calculate this?????

          Will this force be applied directly to the thread of the screw or is it laterally applied to the screw?

           

          How long of a lead screw are you needing?

           

          Are you designing the lead screw, or is it going to be purchased?

           

          Lead screw material?

           

          These are the first questions I would have if someone here asked this question. I have more questions,but those would be where I would start.
