The Pfaff-silberblau SHE-series worm gear screw jacks from Columbus McKinnon Engineered Products, Kissing, ensure reliable operation in the latest pavers of the global mechanical engineering company Linnhoff & Henne. Only two worm gear screw jacks are required to handle the forces of 400 kN produced during the mechanical laying of mastic asphalt. The screw jacks featuring self-locking, grease-lubricated trapezoidal screws can be positioned very precisely at speeds of 150 mm/min thanks to a high ratio (32:1) and a stroke of 0.5 mm per revolution.
