Screw Jack Systems provide comprehensive lifting and positioning design solutions for a wide variety 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 supply a complete bundle from an individual source.
We offers system style assistance, taking the guess work out of product selection. Our years of application experience assures that elements of the design process are considered. We also offer complete assembly drawings, which gives 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 models with load handling capacities from 1/4 ton to 100 tons. They may 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 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 external 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 definitely 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 supported on anti-friction tapered roller bearings with exterior seals provided to prevent loss of lubrication. The drive sleeve is usually 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 required safety, cost-efficiency, and durability mandates of your application.
