6. ACME Threads

Acme screw threads are mainly used for the purpose of  producing traversing motions on machines, tools etc.
The multi-start threads are used to provide fast relative traversing motion.

7. Stub ACME

The Stub Acme screw threads are generally confined to those unusual applications like transmission of power and motion where a  coarse pitch thread of shallow depth is required due to mechanical or metallurgical considerations.

8. Trapezoidal Thread

Trapezoidal threads are used for transmission of power and motion and are nearly similar to ACME threads, but are made to metric dimensions and standards.

The most commonly used class of threads are 7e for external threads & 7H for internal threads.

9. Buttress Screw Thread

These are asymmetrical threads and are used for transmission of power in one direction. The most common thread profile is 7° / 45°.

10. Round Threads

Round Threads :
These threads are also known as Knuckle threads and are insensitive to dirt and damage due to their round shape and are used in fastening screw threads in clutch of railway cars and for large valves and gates, for bottle caps etc.
