Stainless Steel Worm Gear Machine Screw Jacks

Stainless Steel Machine Screw Jacks - 2/3 Ton to 12 Ton

ActionJac™ Stainless Steel Machine Screw Jacks are ideal for use in demanding environments where corrosion resistance is required. All external components are manufactured from 300 series Stainless Steel materials. These jacks use a stainless steel worm with a high strength bronze drive sleeve. Load capacities for Stainless Steel Machine Screw Jacks range from 1,300 to 23,000 pounds. A 17-4PH hardened worm is available for a 300% increase in capacity.

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.

Machine Screw Jacks having gear rations between 20:1 and 32:1 are self-locking and will hold loads without backdriving in the absence of vibrations. All other ratios may require a brake to prevent backdriving.

Upright

A lift shaft moves through the gear box and extends out from the top. jack. An integrated nut and worm gear rotate together. When the lift shaft is held to prevent rotation, the lift shaft will move linearly through the gear box to move the load.

Inverted

A lift shaft moves through the gear box and extends out from the bottom. An integrated nut and worm gear rotate together. When the lift shaft is held to prevent rotation, the lift shaft will move linearly through the gear box to move the load.

 

Upright Rotating

A lift shaft moves a nut as it turns and is fixed to the worm gear. This causes the load, which is attached to the travel nut, to move along the lift shaft. The lift shaft extends out the top.

 

Inverted Rotating

A lift shaft that moves a nut as it turns and is fixed to the worm gear. This causes the load, which is attached to the travel nut, to move along the lift shaft. The lift shaft extends out the bottom of the jack.
