Machine Screw Jacks lift and precisely positional kinds of loads from 250 pounds to 250 tons. Upright or inverted, these precision jacks operate at full capacity whether the load is in tension or compression. WJ and RWJ series single lead jacks are self-locking under full lifting capacity. DWJ and DRWJ double lead series jacks offer increased travel speed. Alloy steel input shafts, aluminum bronze worm gears and tapered roller or ball thrust bearings provide rugged reliability. Double input shafts are standard. Single input shafts are available with right or left hand extension or additional length. Jacks are available with one of four standard end conditions or special ends to meet your requirements.
All jack designs can be fitted with protective boots.

Jacks equipped with the anti-backlash feature are rated at full capacity under static conditions.
