Push or pull the heaviest of loads

SKF 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. 

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, at a top 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.
