This week, we continue our review of the white paper “How to Size a Worm Gear Screw Jack” by looking at the role Tonnage under load can affect the sizing of the linear motion system.
The load capacity of a jack is also limited by the physical constraints of its components, such as its drive sleeve, lift shaft or bearings. All anticipated loads should be within the rated capacity of the jack. Loads on the jack in most applications include: static loads, dynamic (or moving) loads, cutting forces or other reaction forces and acceleration/deceleration loads.
For shock loads, the peak load must not exceed the rated capacity of the jack, and an appropriate design factor should be applied that is commensurate with the severity of the shock.
For accidental overloads not anticipated in the design of the system, jacks produced by Nook Industries can sustain the following overload conditions without damage: 10 percent for dynamic loads, 30 percent for static loads.
Increase in customer demand within the packaging industry continues to power the need for the most reliable linear motion products to be integrated into packaging applications. Tailored to solve the toughest packaging challenges, Nook’s products are found in a variety of different packaging applications from filling and measuring to wrapping and labeling. We offer the packaging industry a variety of systems’ solutions, which incorporate our core products, such as Modular Linear, Worm Gear Ball Screw Jacks and Linear Slide Systems.
