Features & Benefits

Product Line Overview:

Model “S” – Standing Version

Design Description: The spindle travels through the jack body, providing direct linear force. A variety of rod ends and flange components allow easy connection.

Design Note: Space is required above and below the jack body to equal at least the lift distance, plus add-on components.

Other Designs Available: Square body jacks in cast iron and aluminum as well as a variety of lift speeds are available upon request.

Model “R” – Rotating Version

Design Description: The spindle rotates, driving a nut up and down it’s length. A variety of nut options are available.

Design Note: Other than for very short spindle lengths, the top of the spindle should be supported by a bearing to avoid rod whip.

Other Designs Available: Square body jacks in cast iron and aluminum as well as a variety of lift speeds are available upon request.

Complete Systems

Design Description: Complete systems can include the screw jacks, the jack accessories, the connecting components, and the drive systems.

Sizes: Multiple jacks can share the load of a balanced system, reducing the size of individual screw jacks.

Design Note: When moving a load with multiple jacks, it is critical to assure proper alignment and provide guided system support.
