Windshield wiper motors

Description

A 20 ton inverted ball screw actuators with a Servo motor, was chosen for this application because of the need to run units at a precise speed and travel distance. Instantaneous response is a necessity here.

Product used

Screw Jack, Unit 20 ton upright ball screw actuator.

Concrete block production

Description

The actuator is used in a block loader mechanism which loads "wet" blocks onto motorized rail carts for transport to the Kiln.  Once cured the loaded carts automatically return to the opposite side of the machine where an identical mechanism unloads cured concrete blocks onto a conveyor system that takes them to a palletizing station for final packaging and shipment.

Product used

Screw Jack, M10824-24 a 25-ton Ball screw actuators.

Rollforming Steel for siding used on buildings

Description

What makes this system a little different is the incorporation of counters on the actuators.  In the past, the operator had to guess at the setting when he was changing thickness of the steel.  With the counter, he knows where the actuator should be with relative position by the number on the counter.  This eliminates trial and error once the desired positions are determined.

Product used

Unit: (22) 5 ton inverted machine screw actuators

HVAC Production Process

Description

The combination of screw jacks and linear actuator used in this process allowed the operator to tilt a very heavy object into a position that made the step in production much more efficient.
