Selecting and Sizing Electromechanical Screw Jacks to Replace Hydraulic Lifting Systems

There is a widespread push in North America to replace hydraulic lifting systems with electromechanical systems. This trend has been going on for many years in Europe and is now really taking hold in North America. Many engineers are now tasked with the job of eliminating environmentally unfriendly hydraulic oil with systems that are purely electromechanical. When making this changeover, a number of important factors need to be considered to make sure the new design will work properly, efficiently, and reliably over the life of the system. This webinar will walk you through the critical engineering factors that need to be considered and then will create a multi-jack lifting system complete with the performance data, 3D drawings and bills of materials.

1 Seeking Higher Ground (March 2016)

Even for a toddlin town famous for making “no small plans” — such as, for example, reversing in 1900 the Chicago River to secure clean drinking water, or rebuilding itself seemingly overnight after the devastating “Great Chicago Fire” (1871) — to physically — and successfully — elevate itself as much as 14 feet above its original ground level defies not only description but credulity.

3 Realizing the High Precision Load Handling Benefits of Rodless Electromechanical Actuators (February 2019)

Electromechanical rodless linear actuators can offer better load handling in smaller spaces than rod-style actuators, but realizing those benefits requires careful attention at the specification level. Whether you are replacing a failed actuator, looking for better performance or building a new application from the ground up, success depends on how precisely you specify application requirements.

4 Reduce Your Linear Motion Assemblies to a Single Component with Motorized Lead Screw Actuators (December 2019)

When it comes to specifying linear motion within a machine, system designers have many options from which to choose. Making the right choice can impact the ease of installation, footprint and cost of operation.
