Ball screw nut installation method note the following
Ball screw nut pair is only used to bear the axial load, radial force, bending moment will make the ball screw nut auxiliary surface contact stress and other loads, which may cause permanent damage to the screw. Correct installation is a prerequisite for effective maintenance. Therefore, the following points should be noted when installing the ball screw nut assembly into the machine tool: 1

Permissible Axial Load  THK
With the Ball Screw, it is necessary to select a screw shaft so that it will not buckle when the maximum compressive load is applied in the axial direction. Fig.12 on A shows the relationship between the screw shaft diameter and a buckling load. If determining a buckling load by calculation, it can be obtained from the equation (5) below. Note that in this equation, a safety factor of 0.5 is

Ball screw  Wikipedia
Applications. Ball screws are used in aircraft and missiles to move control surfaces, especially for electric fly by wire, and in automobile power steering to translate rotary motion from an electric motor to axial motion of the steering rack. They are also used in machine tools, robots and precision assembly equipment. High precision ball screws are used in steppers for semiconductor

Finite element analysis of the axial stiffness of a ball screw
The axial contact stiffness of the doublenut ball screw pair, subject to a pretightening force, was analyzed, according to the abovementioned steps. The simulation results demonstrated that under the same working conditions, the stiffness of the doublearc ball screw was larger by between 5~100 N/um than that of the singlearc ball screw. The spiral lead angle increased the axial stiffness

Ball Screw Selection Guide  UNC Charlotte Engineering
Axial Screw Loads are created by acceleration, friction, weight and process forces on a Ball Screw. A factor to take into account is buckling stress, this occurs when the screw shaft is exposed to a compressive force in the axial direction, which creates a bend in the screw shaft. An example of buckling can be seen below.

Torque to linear thrust through lead screw  Instructables
linear force * thread pitch = torque / radius [M/r = force at radius] * circumference of lead screw F = 2*π*M/p * (1k) //k stands for coefficient of friction between lead screw and nut) Radius falls out of equation, which seems fine as force is provided by torque, which is radius agnostic.
