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 intensive range of drive, connection, motion control, safety, and protection components to provide a complete package from an individual 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 considered. We also offer complete assembly drawings, which provides time saving worth and guarantees the right system components are integrated into your design.
Worm Gear Screw Jack systems are ruggedly designed and stated 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 constructed with 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 exterior seals provided to prevent lack of lubrication (sealed radial bearings on the MJ, 1/4 , 1/2, and 1 ton models). The drive sleeve is usually 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 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 avoid loss 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-artwork CAD and CAE systems and adhering to stringent production requirements, these screw jacks meet up with all the necessary safety, cost-efficiency, and strength mandates of the application.
