Screw Jack Systems offer extensive lifting and positioning style solutions for a wide variety of industries. Highly accurate and extremely dependable machine screw and ball screw jacks are matched with an comprehensive selection of drive, connection, movement control, safety, and protection components to provide a complete bundle from a single source.
We offers system style assistance, taking the guess work out of item selection. Our years of software experience assures that all elements of the design process are believed. We also offer full assembly drawings, which gives time saving value and guarantees the right system components are built-into your design.
Worm Equipment Screw Jack systems are ruggedly designed and produced in standard models with load handling capacities from 1/4 ton to 100 tons. They might be used separately or in multiple arrangements. There are no “standard” travel lengths and all Worm Gear Screw Jack systems are built to specification.
The jack housings are made from ductile iron and proportioned to aid the rated capacity of the unit. MJ, 1/4 ton, and 1/2 ton models have light weight aluminum housings.
Each Worm Gear Screw Jack incorporates an alloy steel worm which drives a higher strength bronze worm equipment (drive sleeve). The worm shaft is backed on antifriction tapered roller bearings with exterior seals provided to avoid loss of lubrication (sealed radial bearings on the MJ, 1/4 , 1/2, and 1 ton devices). The drive sleeve can be supported on antifriction tapered roller or ball thrust bearings. Rotation of the drive sleeve causes the lifting screw to translate or rotate, depending upon jack configuration.
The Inch and Metric Worm Gear Machine Screw Jacks incorporate an alloy or stainless steel worm which drives a higher strength bronze worm gear (drive sleeve). The worm shaft is backed on anti-friction tapered roller bearings with exterior seals provided to avoid loss of lubrication. The drive sleeve is definitely supported on anti-friction tapered roller or ball thrust bearings. Rotation of the drive sleeve causes the acme thread lifting screw to translate or rotate, depending upon jack configuration.
The threads are precision formed, typically using Class 2-C (Centralizing) tolerances. Jack lift shaft business lead tolerance is approximately ±0.004″ per foot.
Designed with state-of-the-art CAD and CAE systems and adhering to stringent manufacturing requirements, these screw jacks satisfy all the necessary safety, cost-efficiency, and sturdiness mandates of your application.
