Two Week Delivery Available On Selected ActionJac Worm Gear Screw Jacks

Cleveland, OH - June 19, 2013

As an added benefit to their customers, Nook Industries now offers 2-Week Delivery on their iconic ActionJac™ series Worm Gear Screw Jack product line. Two-week delivery is available for 1/4-ton to 10-ton jack sizes for both Ball Screw Jacks and Machine Screw Jacks. Multiple accessories available. Contact Nook Industries for specific lead times for jacks supplied with accessories.

ActionJac™ 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 individually or in multiple arrangements. There are no "standard" travel lengths and each Worm Gear Screw Jack is built 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 ActionJac™ Worm Gear Screw Jack incorporates an alloy 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 prevent loss of lubrication (sealed radial bearings on the MJ, 1/4 , 1/2, and 1 ton units). The drive sleeve is supported on anti-friction tapered roller or ball thrust bearings. Rotation of the drive sleeve causes the lifting screw to translate or rotate, depending upon jack configuration.
