Screw Jack Systems offer comprehensive lifting and positioning design solutions for a wide variety of industries. Highly accurate and extremely reliable machine screw and ball screw jacks are matched with an considerable selection of drive, connection, motion control, safety, and security components to supply a complete bundle from an individual source.
We offers system design assistance, taking the imagine work out of product selection. Our years of software experience assures that all elements of the look process are believed. We also offer full assembly drawings, which provides time saving worth and guarantees the correct system components are built-into your design.
Worm Gear Screw Jack systems are ruggedly designed and produced in standard versions with load managing capacities from 1/4 ton to 100 tons. They may be used individually 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 made of ductile iron and proportioned to aid 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 worm screw jack drives a higher 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 products). The drive sleeve is 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 high strength bronze worm gear (drive sleeve). The worm shaft is supported on anti-friction tapered roller bearings with external seals provided to avoid loss of lubrication. The drive sleeve is 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 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 strength mandates of the application.
