Danaher Motion, a manufacturer of Thomson linear motion products, has introduced a compact, electrically actuated telescopic lift column suitable for use in space-critical environments, such as those found in the medical, disability, rehabilitation and fitness OEM markets.

The Thomson Movoact TC16 – which features a low retracted height – is designed for applications that demand a high load, including reclining beds, dental chairs, adjustable computer tables, X-ray equipment, wheelchairs, fitness equipment and vehicles adapted for disabled people.

The lift column is built around a combination of double-telescoping lead screws with a belt-driven gear and the latest in motor technology developed by Thomson.

Key benefits

  • The aesthetic design of the aluminium extrusions allows the Movoact TC16 to be a visible component; this eliminates the need for cover plates or enclosures and therefore reduces material cost and assembly time.
  • Service time is also reduced and the product is designed to have a long maintenance-free life thanks to the use of quality component parts.
  • The design ensures quiet operation in an efficient package, giving a high load capacity (maximum 2,000N) with minimum current consumption.
  • Incorporated within the design is an anti-friction material that gives a high moment load capability in a small envelope.
  • For safety purposes, the Movoact TC16 features an integral self-locking mechanism for static load holding together with dynamic braking.
