Screw Jack Systems offer comprehensive lifting and positioning design solutions for a wide variety of industries. Highly accurate and intensely dependable machine screw and ball screw jacks are matched with an comprehensive range of drive, connection, motion control, safety, and protection components to supply a complete package from a single source.
We offers system style assistance, taking the imagine work out of product selection. Our years of software experience assures that elements of the look process are believed. We also offer full assembly drawings, which gives time saving value and guarantees the correct system components are integrated into your design.
Worm Equipment Screw Jack systems are ruggedly designed and produced in standard versions with load managing capacities from 1/4 ton to 100 tons. They may be used separately or in multiple plans. There are no "regular" travel lengths and all Worm Gear Screw Jack systems are designed to specification.
The jack housings are made from ductile iron and proportioned to support the rated capacity of the machine. MJ, 1/4 ton, and 1/2 ton models have 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 supported on antifriction tapered roller bearings with external seals provided to avoid loss of lubrication (sealed radial bearings on the MJ, 1/4 , 1/2, and 1 ton units). The drive sleeve is certainly 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 high strength bronze worm gear (drive sleeve). The worm shaft is backed on anti-friction tapered roller bearings with exterior seals provided to prevent lack of lubrication. The drive sleeve can be 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 production requirements, these screw jacks fulfill all the necessary safety, cost-efficiency, and strength mandates of the application.
