Screw Jack Systems provide extensive lifting and positioning style solutions for a wide variety of industries. Highly accurate and extremely reliable machine screw and ball screw jacks are matched with an intensive range of drive, connection, motion control, safety, and safety components to provide a complete package from a single source.
We offers system design assistance, taking the guess work out of product selection. Our years of app experience assures that all elements of the design process are believed. 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 models with load handling capacities from 1/4 ton to 100 tons. They may be used separately or in multiple plans. 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 aluminium housings.
Each Worm Gear Screw Jack incorporates an alloy steel worm which drives a high strength bronze worm equipment (drive sleeve). The worm shaft is supported on antifriction tapered roller bearings with external 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 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 higher strength bronze worm gear (drive sleeve). The worm shaft is backed 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 lead tolerance is approximately ±0.004″ per foot.
Designed with state-of-the-art CAD and CAE systems and sticking with stringent production requirements, these screw jacks meet all the necessary safety, cost-efficiency, and durability mandates of the application.
