PRLog - July 21, 2008 - LEIGHTON BUZZARD, U.K. -- SKF, the leading knowledge engineering company, has launched a powerful lifting column that combines compact dimensions with the ability to support loads of up to 2500N. The Telemag TFG is ideal for vertical push or pull applications, thanks to its stiff aluminium profiles and precision glide pads, which enable it to lift off-centre loads without bending.
SKF's Telemag TFG
The Telemag TFG pillar consists of three aluminium profiles, which sit inside each other and can be extended or retracted by means of an integrated linear actuator. The lifting column converts rotary motion from an integrated DC motor with worm gear into linear motion by means of a spindle nut system. The unit operates with minimum noise and vibration, even at a maximum speed of 19mm/s.
The TFG is self locking in both push and pull mode for enhanced stability and user safety. The column is capable of a maximum stroke length of 700mm, making it extremely flexible, and features integrated end limit switches. For additional safety, the TFG has cut off switches at the end positions, in addition to a back up nut. The pillars can be easily protected against overload using a suitable control or master unit.
The Telemag TFG is ideal for use in medical applications, such as ceiling mount equipment, incubators, opthalmic chairs, and veterinary tables, as well as being able to enhance the performance of many industrial applications. It is available in 24, 120 or 230V options, with all models meeting IP30 compliance and tested according to EN/UL 60601-1. The pillar is compatible with many other SKF products and can be used as part of a full system of actuators and controls. A wide range of control and operating interface accessories are also available.
