Screw Jacks

Reliable, powerful and versatile Thomson screw jacks, which are designed around a trapezoidal or ball screw drive, deliver solutions to high-accuracy, heavy-load and high-speed applications.  

Where are jackscrews used?

Jackscrews have been trusted for lifting, lowering, tipping and holding high-value materials for automobile manufacturers, furnace covers in crystal formation, LCD panel makers, and paper and packaging machinery around the globe. Common among these applications has been a need for powerful, reliable and complete system that simple to adapt and install.

Why should you choose Thomson jackscrews?

Mechanical engineering systems must produce more performance at reduced cost – jackscrews are no exception. The requirement can be summed up as “shorter cycle times for the same price.” Components are expected to combine high reliability, low maintenance costs and fast repair service. The number of jackscrew suppliers and the diversity of parts purchased must be also reduced. This demands rigorous assembly concepts and competent, service-oriented partners.

This is where the Thomson MULI® and JUMBO® worm gear jackscrews shine – standing for reliability in use and versatility in application. They are technically mature, and with an easy-to-mount, rectangular housing, they can easily be extended to form wide-area jack systems with the help of a wide range of accessories. And at the heart of every Thomson jackscrew is a precision trapezoidal or ball screw drive of acknowledged high quality from our own screw production.

Our comprehensive portfolio of jackscrews offers a wide range of types and sizes of gears. These permit even heavy loads to be moved at high speed. We undertake the entire dimensioning of the jack system for you, including the drive technology. And you are saved the time-consuming procurement of multiple individual components.
