Stainless Steel Screw Jacks

Mechanical Actuators - 1/4 to 350 Ton

SSSJ_Actuator
SSSJ_Actuator
2 to 100 ton capacity. Stainless Steel Machine screw actuators offer positive mechanical action, precise positioning, and uniform lifting speeds. Standard configurations include upright or inverted units with translating or rotating lifting screws, and top plate, threaded, or clevis ends. Duff-Norton offers a complete line of both standard and custom engineered machine screw actuators for applications up to 350 tons.

Performance Specifications

Performance Table Instructions 
When reviewing and Duff-Norton Actuator Performance Specification Table, as part of the process of selecting the best-suited actuator for your application, there are several important worm-gear ratios to consider.
Standard Ratio - is frequently chosen when higher speeds and efficiency ratings are desired.
Optional Ratio - is frequently chosen when the application requires higher lifting capacities, lower speeds, or to ease the use of a handwheel.
Numeric Ratio - is frequently chosen for applications requiring fine adjustments, higher lifting capacities, lowerspeeds, the easy use of a handwheel, self locking applications, and also offers the benefit of an even number of worm input turns per inch of stroke.
