Screw Jack Systems provide extensive lifting and positioning design solutions for a wide selection of industries. Highly accurate and intensely dependable machine screw and ball screw jacks are matched with an considerable selection of drive, connection, movement control, safety, and security components to supply a complete package from an individual source.
We offers system style assistance, taking the imagine work out of product selection. Our years of program experience assures that elements of the look process are believed. We also offer full assembly drawings, which provides time saving value and guarantees the right 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 may be used separately or in multiple arrangements. There are no “standard” 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 aluminium housings.
Each Worm Gear Screw Jack incorporates an alloy metal 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 avoid lack 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, dependant on 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 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 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 fulfill all the necessary safety, cost-efficiency, and toughness mandates of your application.
