JACTON

The JACTON product range is a comprehensive range of screw jacks, linear actuators and cylinders.
Screw jacks and actuators are a product group that combines a worm or bevel gearbox with a transmission screw of either trapezoidal, acme, ball or roller screw type.
This creates a complete assembly that meets load and velocity requirements and are often combined into multi-point thrust systems.
They can be driven by any type of motor or handwheel to convert rotary motion into linear motion.
Applications are wide and varied to typically lift, pull, push, lock, tilt or pivot a load.
They are available with a wide choice of gear ratios which when combined with different screw leads offer a very wide range of size and load capabilities, anything from a few kilos to thousands of tonnes from extreme low to very high velocity.
