Thomson Industries Inc. is introducing a new series of lifting columns offering compact, telescopic pre-aligned motion. The LC Series requires no maintenance throughout their lifetime. These innovative products can save cost on overall machine design and are suitable for providing telescopic motion in medical and ergonomic applications.
Thomson Lifting Columns are self-supporting and designed for rapid installation and maintenance-free operation. They are described as highly reliable devices that provide outstanding performance, giving smooth, quiet and fast operation with an excellent extension to retraction ratio. Aesthetically pleasing and easy to install with pre-drilled mounting holes, the compact form of the lifting columns can help optimise machine design and reduce overall costs associated with production.
The Lifting Columns consist of anodised extruded aluminium profiles, which slide into each other. The design provides a high moment load capacity without compromise on speed of operation along with a large lift capacity to frame size ratio. Their robustness and performance is complemented by the ability to link multiple units together for flexibility in design configuration.
Thomson Lifting Columns are available in three model variations, which provide different performance in extension to retraction ratio, load capacity, speed and cost, in order to match application needs. As with all Thomson products, the lifting columns can also be customised to meet specific customer requirements.
With their innovative design and maintenance-free operation, the new Thomson LC Series Lifting Columns can help engineers optimise overall machine design, offering the potential for cost reduction and reduced manufacturing time. Strong, reliable and quiet, they deliver excellent performance and versatility to match design engineer application and budget requirements.
