Screw Jack Systems provide comprehensive lifting and positioning design solutions for a wide selection of industries. Highly accurate and intensely reliable machine screw and ball screw jacks are matched with an intensive range of drive, connection, movement control, safety, and protection components to supply a complete package from an individual source.
We offers system style assistance, taking the imagine work out of item selection. Our years of worm screw jack application experience assures that all elements of the design process are believed. We also offer full assembly drawings, which gives time saving value and guarantees the right system components are integrated into your design.
Worm Equipment Screw Jack systems are ruggedly designed and stated in standard versions with load managing capacities from 1/4 ton to 100 tons. They might be used individually 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 made of ductile iron and proportioned to aid the rated capacity of the machine. MJ, 1/4 ton, and 1/2 ton models have light weight aluminum housings.
Each Worm Gear Screw Jack incorporates an alloy metal 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 definitely 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 worm which drives a higher strength bronze worm gear (drive sleeve). The worm shaft is supported on anti-friction tapered roller bearings with external seals provided to avoid lack 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 Course 2-C (Centralizing) tolerances. Jack lift shaft lead tolerance is approximately ±0.004″ per foot.
Designed with state-of-the-artwork CAD and CAE systems and sticking with stringent manufacturing requirements, these screw jacks fulfill all the required safety, cost-efficiency, and durability mandates of the application.
