What is the Working Principle of Screw Jack?

The working principle of a screw jack is based on the mechanical advantage of the screw. When a force is applied to the handle of the screw jack, it rotates the screw, which moves the load up or down based on the direction of rotation. The screw jack is designed in a way that it amplifies the force applied to the handle, which makes it possible to lift heavier loads with ease.

What is the Difference between a Screw Jack and a Hydraulic Jack?

The main difference between a screw jack and a hydraulic jack is that a screw jack is powered by a mechanical screw, while a hydraulic jack is powered by a hydraulic cylinder. Screw jacks are slower but have higher load capacity and precision, while hydraulic jacks are faster but have lower load capacity and precision.
