Benefits at a glance:
Shearing forces of up to 35,000 N
Ideal for realizing long strokes, particularly when space is limited
Compact retention of the chain, even more than one length
No back springing under load
Holds the absolute position
Uniform, no-jerk movements
Synchronized operation of horizontal or vertical movements
The LinearChain push/pull actuator is able to move large loads horizontally and vertically with high positioning accuracy. The LinearChain series consists of specially designed links, whose geometry prevents them from being kinked under pressure loads. As a result, the LinearChain can be used as a conventional linear drive.
The chain is driven using a special housing with integrated chain sprocket to which a drive motor, such as a shaft-mounted Compacta drive motor, can be flange-mounted.
Besides the standard LinearChain range that is sold since 2014 by the Company Grob GmbH Antriebstechnik, Framo Morat has developed in the past years many projects based on special LinearChain designs. Customer-specific variants of LinearChain are for example used in drives for dental or medical technology.
Its many years of experience in the drive technology field make Framo Morat your reliable development partner with system competence who will offer you a technically and economically mature solution.
General information about the LinearChain
In the industry, the market offers to the user several usual systems to create linear motion.
Generally, these systems include hydraulic or pneumatic cylinders, or electro-mechanical spindle drives. Also cam, disk or redirection systems are often used.
