The ‘go anywhere’ performance of Elesa standard components have proved a real boon for one customer.

Power Jacks, which provides electro-mechanical linear motion, lifting and positioning systems, taps into what is described as the ‘go anywhere’ performance of Elesa standard components.

Explains Power Jacks’ marketing director Bruce Hamper: “We use Elesa high-strength metal and composite handles in 2 and 3 spoked forms – some go on purely manual screw jacks, others are used as a manual back-up on screw jacks, actuators or gearboxes. For manual operation, we often add an extra gearbox at the input shaft to reduce the input torque and effort.”

Power Jacks products – like its E-Series Screw Jacks – feature precision gear sets, the option of machine screw/ball screw/roller screw drives and are available as complete stainless steel constructions. The products can be supplied in standard and fully complete customised designs to meet all application requirements, including those in industries such as nuclear and defence, oil fields, offshore/onshore, aircraft servicing, automotive vehicle production and steel mills.

Feedback from engineers in-house and in the field is said to confirm that the relationship with Elesa provides extremely valuable support, particularly in terms of Power Jacks’ competitiveness and emergency supply service across a wide range of quality products. In the design area, Power Jacks’ engineers are reported to appreciate especially Elesa’s technical support online, with easy access to CAD 3D STEP models and its direct relationship with the team at Elesa UK.
