Thomson technical webinar explores Worm Screw Jacks

Thomson Product Line Specialist Tobias Münch will present a technical webinar on Worm Gear Screw Jacks on 21 August 2013, providing practical advice on how to the correctly size and specify screw jacks suitable for powerful lifting, tilting and positioning applications in the toughest environments.

Thomson's precision-engineered MULI and JUMBO jacks provide powerful industrial positioning up to 500kN, and are engineered to withstand high compressive and tensile loads for precise and durable lifting, lowering, tilting and feed movement. The webinar will explore how Thomson worm screw jacks can optimise cost, performance and reliability through customer applications, for example adjustment of paper rolls and conveyors, tilting and positioning of assembly platforms and material pressing.

Tobias has more than 6 years' experience in the design and application of screw jacks. In the Webinar he will share a step-by-step process for selecting the correct component and explain how to calculate system parameters such as the required drive torque and critical buckling force.

Thomson Worm Gear Screw Jacks were designed with the help of advanced Computer Aided Design (CAD) and Computer Aided Engineering (CAE) systems to increase the levels of precision and reliability set by previous engineering standards.

Tobias Münch will conduct the first Webinar in German at 11am CEST 21 August, and the second in English at 4pm CEST 21 August. More details of the Worm Gear Screw Jacks technical webinar and how to dial in can be found at goo.gl/ZRYfmk (English) and goo.gl/ZxNEJ2 (German).
