Screw Jack Systems offer extensive 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 intensive range of drive, connection, movement control, safety, and worm screw jack security components to provide a complete bundle from a single source.
We offers system style assistance, taking the guess work out of product selection. Our years of application 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 built-into your design.
Worm Equipment Screw Jack systems are ruggedly designed and produced in standard models with load managing 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 designed 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 metal worm which drives a high strength bronze worm gear (drive sleeve). The worm shaft is backed on antifriction tapered roller bearings with exterior seals provided to avoid loss of lubrication (sealed radial bearings on the MJ, 1/4 , 1/2, and 1 ton units). 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 worm which drives a higher 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 definitely 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, dependant on 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 production requirements, these screw jacks meet up with all the necessary safety, cost-efficiency, and sturdiness mandates of your application.
