Push pull actuation
The design of the precision chain links in the new Framo Morat LinearChain actuation device enables the chain to push as well as pull heavy loads. Their special profile with interlocking fingers at one end enables the chain to roll up for efficient storage in one direction and form a rigid thrust device in the other.
In the magazine the chain is stored spirally within a narrow chamber making LinearChain ideal for applications calling for long strokes where space is at a premium. The device provides high positioning accuracy, constant stroke speed and shock-free motion with no elastic hysteresis under load. It has been designed for a long operational life and minimal maintenance.
LinearChain is available in three basic sizes allowing stroke lengths of up to 5m and a maximum push force of up to 35,000N. Compact drive units for the chain and storage magazines are readily available for all chain sizes from Framo Morat's UK distributor, RA Rodriguez.
