Screw Jack Systems provide 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, movement control, safety, and protection components to provide a complete bundle 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 full assembly drawings, which provides time saving value and guarantees the correct 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 may be used separately or in multiple arrangements. There are no “regular” travel lengths and all Worm Gear Screw Jack systems are built to specification.
The jack housings are made of ductile iron and proportioned to screw jack china support 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 steel worm which drives a higher strength bronze worm equipment (drive sleeve). The worm shaft is backed on antifriction tapered roller bearings with external seals provided to avoid loss of lubrication (sealed radial bearings on the MJ, 1/4 , 1/2, and 1 ton devices). The drive sleeve can be 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 supported on anti-friction tapered roller bearings with exterior seals provided to avoid lack 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, dependant on jack configuration.
The threads are precision formed, typically using Course 2-C (Centralizing) tolerances. Jack lift shaft business lead tolerance is approximately ±0.004″ per foot.
Designed with state-of-the-art CAD and CAE systems and sticking with stringent manufacturing requirements, these screw jacks fulfill all the required safety, cost-efficiency, and toughness mandates of the application.
