When formulated prior to 1895, ACME threads were intended to replace square threads and a variety of threads of other forms used chiefly for the purpose of transversing motions on machine tools, etc. ACME threads are now extensively used for a variety of purposes, valve stems, feed screws, jack screws, carriage-run screws and similar applications because they are superior at generating power for motion. Acme is manufactured to Government Standards H-28 handbook dimensions.
