Vertical positioning column actuators

Written by: Tom Austin-Morgan | Published:

Linear motion company, Thomson, has introduced a range of motorised vertical lift columns for medical and accessibility equipment as well as the burgeoning market for standing/seating desks and workstations. Thomson's LC series lifting columns are available in two- and three-piece telescopic formats based on smart extruded aluminium profiles with an aesthetic design.

Three models with standard stroke lengths between 200 and 600mm include a choice of leadscrew and ballscrew driven variants with self-supporting load capacity from 1600 to 3000N.

At the top end of the range the LC3000 is a three-piece extrusion with a ballscrew drive mechanism in a compact design that not only caters for a 3000N loading capacity but also offers a moment loading of up to 400Nm with an operational speed up to 19mm/sec. This capability suits heavy duty applications as well as single column mechanisms where high offset loads need to be supported.

The complete range is characterised by quiet yet powerful operation and an extension/retraction ratio that offers a minimal retracted length. This combines with maintenance-free long-life performance and simple installation that keeps integration costs to a minimum.
