New High-Performance Screw-Jacks Offer Precise Positioning with High Thrust
Press release date: May 1, 2014
ATLANTA Drive Systems, Inc. is pleased to announce a new range of High-Performance Screw-Jacks, offering precise linear positioning and high dynamic performance by means of a servo-worm reducer and precision ballscrew spindle. Linear speeds up to 590 inches per minute can be achieved with ballscrews diameters up to 50 mm and axial load capacities up to 22,500 lb. are possible, with higher load capacities reached by using two screw-jacks in tandem to share the loads.
These screw-jacks are available in four sizes with rotating ballscrews and translating nut, or non-rotating ballscrew in a lifting cylinder design. Both designs can be used with 100% duty cycles. The ballscrew spindles are protected against contamination by bellows or protective tubes and are continuously lubricated with an automatic lubrication system.
Applications requiring precise, controlled linear motion with high dynamic performance are perfect for these drives. Typical applications include sheet metal bending, hydraulic cylinder replacements, conveyor tensioning, and lifting table drives. Industries served include Material Handling, Automation and Automotive.
