Screw Jack Systems provide extensive lifting and positioning style solutions for a wide variety of industries. Highly accurate and extremely dependable machine screw and ball screw jacks are matched with an extensive range of drive, connection, motion control, safety, and security components to supply a complete bundle from an individual source.
We offers system style assistance, taking the imagine 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 value and guarantees the right 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 arrangements. There are no “regular” travel lengths and all Worm Gear Screw Jack systems are designed to specification.
The jack housings are made of ductile iron and proportioned to support the rated capacity of the unit. MJ, 1/4 ton, and 1/2 ton models have aluminum housings.
Each Worm Gear Screw Jack incorporates an alloy steel worm which drives a higher strength bronze worm gear (drive sleeve). The worm shaft is backed on antifriction tapered roller bearings with external seals provided to avoid lack of lubrication (sealed radial bearings on the MJ, 1/4 , 1/2, and 1 ton products). 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 backed on anti-friction tapered roller bearings with exterior seals provided to prevent 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, 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-artwork CAD and CAE systems and adhering to stringent manufacturing requirements, these screw jacks fulfill all the necessary safety, cost-efficiency, and toughness mandates of the application.
