Screw Jack Systems provide comprehensive lifting and positioning style solutions for a wide selection of industries. Highly accurate and extremely dependable machine screw and ball screw jacks are matched with an extensive range of drive, connection, motion control, safety, and protection components to provide a complete bundle 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 design process are considered. We also offer complete assembly drawings, which provides time saving worth and guarantees the correct system components are integrated into your design.
Worm Gear Screw Jack systems are ruggedly designed and produced in standard versions with load managing capacities from 1/4 ton to 100 tons. They might be used individually or in multiple plans. There are no “regular” travel lengths and all Worm Gear Screw Jack systems are built to specification.
The jack housings are made of ductile iron and proportioned to support the rated capacity of the machine. MJ, 1/4 ton, and 1/2 ton models have aluminium housings.
Each Worm Gear Screw Jack incorporates an alloy steel worm which drives a higher strength bronze worm gear (drive sleeve). The worm shaft is backed on antifriction tapered roller bearings with exterior seals provided to prevent lack of lubrication (sealed radial bearings on the MJ, 1/4 , 1/2, and 1 ton systems). The drive sleeve can be backed 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 supported on anti-friction tapered roller bearings with external seals provided to avoid loss of lubrication. The drive sleeve is certainly 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 Course 2-C (Centralizing) tolerances. Jack lift shaft business lead tolerance is approximately ±0.004″ per foot.
Designed with state-of-the-artwork CAD and CAE systems and adhering to stringent manufacturing requirements, these screw jacks satisfy all the required safety, cost-efficiency, and sturdiness mandates of the application.
