• Torsional & Axial Deflection

    Posted August 22, 2019 - Updated Mar 24, 2020

    What is a Torsional & Axial Deflection? Screw torsional deflection (sometimes called “windup”) may occur when loads are high (resulting in high drive torques) and when the screw is long. Also, screw axial deflection caused by high compression or tension loads may be significant when loads are high and the screw is slender. When rotation […]
