What Side Loads are Permitted on a Screw Jack? Nov 02 , 2017

Where side loads are present, the loads should be guided and the guides, rather than the screw jacks, should take the side loads - particularly for worm screw jack with long stroke. Even a small side load can exert great force on the housings and bearings and increase the operating torque and reduce the life expectancy.
