The development of screw jack building block systems has evolved to push, pull, lift, lower and position loads of anything from a few kilos to hundreds of tonnes.
Today, screw jacks can be linked mechanically or electronically and with the advances in motion-control, loads can be positioned to within microns.
Improvements in gear and screw technology make screw jacks a real alternative to hydraulics in terms of duty cycles and speed at a time when industry demands cleaner, quieter and more reliable solutions.
T.E.A. Transmissions ’ range of ZIMM screw jack building block systems has been revised and expanded to include the new “Z” range. Its application potential as a result, has substantially increased.
The new “Z” ZIMM system is not only more compact, while carrying the same loads, but is also corrosion protected on all exterior components and housing.
The standard MSZ range is now available with a greater choice of screw jack body sizes and material options such as aluminium, cast iron, stainless steel, plated or specialist bodies. All of the above options have a choice of either a standing or rotating screw.
There has also been an increase in the range of available add-on components such as safety nuts, anti-backlash mechanisms, ball screws, stainless spindles, connecting shafts, lubrication devices, linear measuring and encoding systems.
Customers benefit from this versatile screw jack product range and its solutions as complete systems can be provided from one supplier, saving time and costs in design, purchasing and assembly of the screw jack building block system. ZIMM screw jack building block systems are available from T.E.A. Transmissions.
