How Reversing Screws Work

While typical lead screws require the driven screw to change its direction of rotation to change the way the nut is moving or return to its original starting position, a reversing screw assembly can continue to turn in the same direction and have its nut return to its beginning position. This is made possible by a follower blade within the nut that runs along a groove within the screw, guiding it along the path.

What Reversing Screws Are Used For

Because reversing screws have the ability to travel in both directions when the input shaft spins in a single direction, this makes it possible for an assembly like a spool of cable or hose to be wound up neatly. Reversing screws work well on a broad variety of industrial equipment.
