Accurate positioning and adjustment of equipment

Accurate positioning and adjustment of equipment This actuation system for positioning machinery and equipment is easy to assemble and install, with a plug-and-play design.

Easymotion is a hydraulic linear actuation system offering synchronous control of multiple adjustment cylinders. Significant benefits include precise adjustment and reliable synchronous control of multiple cylinders. This enables accurate positioning and height/level adjustment (even on multiple legs) of equipment, machinery or surfaces to meet user specific requirements. Typical applications include work stations, monitors or screens, assembly tables, production line facilities, as well as disability, rehabilitation and medical/laboratory equipment.

Produced by German gas spring manufacturer Bansbach and exclusively available in the UK through midlands component distributor Albert Jagger, the Easymotion system consists of a hydraulic pump, adjustment cylinders and flexible tubes for connecting each individual component. This system can then be operated manually via a foldable crank handle or via an electric motor. There is also a wide range of control systems available to operate the electric motor, including push button, foot pedal and remote control options.

Quick, easy and accurate adjustment
The loading and speed of the system can be set subject to specification and size and the system is very easy to install, making the siting and adjustment of vertical, horizontal and angled surfaces quick, easy and accurate. "It really is a versatile system," says sales director John Wollaston, "with numerous options available at every stage of the specification. This system can be tailor made to individual requirements and as ever the build quality and reliability is unquestionable. It's what we've come to expect of German engineering from our partners at Bansbach."

Easymotion now features a new heavy duty system, which enables you to easily move loads of up to 900kg. This system consists of four adjustment cylinders and is operated by an electric motor. The compact dimensions of the hose connectors between the pump and the adjustment cylinders mean that the system can be installed into even the smallest space, and the flexibility of the hose layout means that the system is unobtrusive. And despite its high weight capacity, the operation of the heavy duty system remains smooth and trouble-free.

Patented 'Break-Stop' safety feature
As with all Easymotion systems, operator safety is paramount and in the unlikely case of any problem, misuse or obstruction during operation, the Bansbach patented emergency 'Break-Stop' will safely shut off the power and stop the procedure. This guarantees user safety and should the hose connector become damaged for any reason, the system will remain in position until the problem is rectified. The 'Break-Stop' system can also be specified as an optional extra on all standard Easymotion systems.

The adjustment cylinders offer a maximum load of 150kg per cylinder as standard or 225kg for the heavy duty products, with maximum weight per system of 600kg (standard) or 900kg (heavy duty). Standard strokes of 150, 200, 300 and 400mm are available, and piston and cylinder diameters are 10/15, 10/18, 10/28, 12/22, 22/28mm. The pump features an anodised aluminium housing and can be operated either manually or via electric motor. Electric motor options are 12V DC or 230V AC, with rotational speed of 165prm translating into a maximum actuation speed of up to 44mm per second.

The 'plug-and-play' design featuring the newly patented Bansbach connectors makes it very quick and easy to connect the pump to the cylinders, so the Easymotion can be up and running within a very short time. The pump and adjustment cylinders are supplied ready for use, so all you need to do is simply plug the hoses into the pump and get started. As the system is so simple to install, assembly mistakes are rare and there is also no need for any other fitting work or ventilation. You just simply plug in and get started.
