Screw jack for subway maintenance

A screw jack is a mechanical device that uses a threaded rod to lift or lower heavy loads. It is commonly used in industrial and construction applications, including subway maintenance. In this article, we will discuss the applications, working principles, and selection criteria for screw jacks, as well as introduce the products and advantages of HZPT, a leading manufacturer of screw jacks.

What is a screw jack used for?

  • Subway maintenance: Screw jacks are often used to lift heavy subway cars for maintenance and repair.
  • Stage and theater equipment: Screw jacks can be used to raise and lower platforms and stages for performances.
  • Construction: Screw jacks are used to support and level structures during construction.
  • Heavy equipment: Screw jacks can be used to lift and position heavy machinery.
  • Automation: Screw jacks can be used in automated systems to control the position of components.

What is the working principle of screw jack?

A screw jack works by turning a threaded rod, which moves a lifting nut up or down the rod. As the nut moves, it lifts or lowers the load that is attached to it. The force required to turn the rod is amplified by the pitch of the thread, which allows relatively small forces to lift heavy loads. The working principle of screw jack can be divided into three parts:

Input force

The input force is applied to the end of the threaded rod, usually by a crank or a motor. The force is converted into rotational motion, which turns the threaded rod.

Threaded rod

The threaded rod is a long, straight rod with a helical thread around its circumference. The thread can be either square or trapezoidal in shape, depending on the application. When the rod turns, the lifting nut moves up or down the rod, depending on the direction of rotation.

Lifting nut

The lifting nut is a nut that is threaded onto the rod and moves up or down as the rod turns. The nut is connected to the load that needs to be lifted, and as it moves, it lifts or lowers the load. The force required to lift the load is the product of the input force and the mechanical advantage of the screw jack.

What is the difference between a screw jack and a hydraulic jack?

A screw jack and a hydraulic jack are both used to lift heavy loads, but they operate on different principles. A screw jack uses a threaded rod to lift the load, while a hydraulic jack uses a liquid, usually oil, to transfer force from a small piston to a larger piston. The main differences between a screw jack and a hydraulic jack are:

  • Power source: A screw jack is operated by a crank or a motor, while a hydraulic jack is operated by a hydraulic pump.
  • Lifting speed: A hydraulic jack can lift loads more quickly than a screw jack.
  • Lifting capacity: A hydraulic jack can lift heavier loads than a screw jack.
  • Precision: A screw jack can lift loads with more precision than a hydraulic jack.
  • Maintenance: A screw jack requires less maintenance than a hydraulic jack.

How to choose or customize a suitable screw jack?

When choosing or customizing a screw jack, there are several parameters and conditions that need to be considered:

  • Lifting capacity: The screw jack must be able to lift the weight of the load.
  • Lifting height: The screw jack must be able to lift the load to the desired height.
  • Speed: The screw jack must be able to lift the load at the desired speed.
  • Environment: The screw jack must be able to operate in the environment where it will be used, including temperature, humidity, and exposure to dust or chemicals.
  • Mounting: The screw jack must be able to be mounted in the required position and orientation.
