Metric Screw Jacks 10kN

MWJ51, MWJ201

Joyce 10 kN metric screw jacks are specifically designed for applications that must be fully metric. Upright or inverted these jacks operate at full capacity in tension or compression and are available in Translating, Keyed for non-rotation, and KFTN designs.

  • Self-locking 20mm diameter, 5 mm pitch trapezoidal lifting screw
  • Fully metric mounting hole locations, diameters, and fasteners
  • Joyce/Dayton can customize to your specifications

Motor for Systems and Direct Drive

  • All standard motors are 3-phase, 208-230/460 VAC or 230/460 VAC. Other motor options are available. Specify the appropriate motor size from the chart on the right.
  • Refer to the "Additional Options" chart on the preceding page as needed.
  • Brake motors (M2) are recommended for jacks that are not self-locking, and jacks with double lead screws.
  • If the motor frequency will be varied to provide a "soft" start an inverter duty motor may be required.

*W: Load in kN.
Tare Torque: Initial torque to overcome seal and normal assembly drag. This value must be added to starting torque or operating torque values.
Starting Torque: Torque value required to start moving a given load (dissipates to operating torque values once the load begins moving).
Operating Torque: Torque required to continuously raise a given load at the input RPM listed. Note: If your actual input RPM is 20% higher or lower than the listed RPM, please refer to our JAX program to determine actual torque values at your RPM.
Screw Torque: Torque required to resist screw rotation (Translating Design Jacks) and traveling nut rotation (Keyed for Traveling Nut Design Jack).
Lead: The distance traveled axially in one rotation of the lifting screw.
Pitch: The distance from a point on a screw thread to a corresponding point on the next thread measured axially.
