What is a screw jack used for?

A screw jack is a mechanical device used to raise or lower heavy loads. Some of its common applications include:

  • Lifting and positioning heavy machinery
  • Adjusting the height of workbenches or platforms
  • Leveling and supporting structures such as bridges or buildings
  • Controlling the throttle, throttle body, or air/fuel mixture in a combustion engine
  • Opening or closing heavy doors or valves

What is the working principle of screw jack?

A screw jack works on the principle of the screw and nut. It consists of a screw (a long, threaded rod) and a nut (a block with a threaded hole) that engages with the screw. When the screw is turned, the nut moves up or down along the screw, depending on the direction of rotation. This linear motion is used to lift or lower the load attached to the screw jack.

The working principle of screw jack can be understood by the following steps:

  1. When the screw is rotated clockwise, the nut moves up along the screw. Conversely, when the screw is rotated counterclockwise, the nut moves down along the screw.
  2. The amount of linear motion produced by the screw jack is determined by the pitch of the screw, which is the distance between two adjacent threads on the screw. The larger the pitch, the higher the amount of linear motion produced by the screw jack.
  3. The load capacity of a screw jack depends on the diameter of the screw and the number of threads on the screw. The larger the diameter and the more threads, the higher the load capacity of the screw jack.

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

A screw jack and a hydraulic jack are two types of jacks used for lifting heavy loads. The main differences between them are:

  • A screw jack is operated by rotating a screw, while a hydraulic jack is operated by pumping hydraulic fluid into a cylinder.
  • A screw jack is slower than a hydraulic jack, as it requires more turns of the screw to lift the load.
  • A screw jack can lift heavier loads than a hydraulic jack, as it can be designed with a larger diameter and more threads on the screw.
  • A screw jack is more suitable for applications where precise positioning is required, as the linear motion produced by the screw can be more accurately controlled than the fluid motion produced by a hydraulic jack.

How to choose or customize a suitable screw jack?

When selecting or customizing a screw jack, the following parameters and practical conditions need to be considered:

  • Load capacity: The maximum weight the screw jack can lift. It should be higher than the weight of the load being lifted.
  • Travel length: The distance the screw jack can move up or down. It should be greater than the height difference between the starting and ending positions of the load.
  • Screw pitch: The distance between two adjacent threads on the screw. It determines the linear motion produced by the screw jack. It should be chosen based on the required lifting speed and accuracy.
  • Screw diameter: The thickness of the screw. It determines the load capacity of the screw jack. It should be chosen based on the weight of the load being lifted.
  • Mounting style: The method of attaching the screw jack to the load and the base. It should be compatible with the structure of the load and the base.
  • Environment: The operating conditions of the screw jack, including temperature, humidity, and corrosiveness. It should be chosen based on the practical conditions of the application.
