Pipe Inspection Device features telescopic design.

April 29, 2014

Optimized for pipe inspection and processing applications, RCT Rigid Chain product can extend telescopically up to 60 ft or more at speeds of 100 fpm or more, depending on load. Unit features standard open loop, locking link and compact storage as well as large support rollers that extend below level of link plates to keep chain slightly above pipe ID to avoid surface wear or damage. Typical pipe related uses include: ID size check, scarf removal, assembly assist, deburring, and part placement. Read More

Telescopic Linear Actuator incorporates high-speed drive.

November 22, 2010

RigiBelt has non-magnetic design and integrates compact drive system, which is rated up to 300 mm/s and has 1,000 N capacity. Drive integrates into existing environments and is made of non-magnetic materials such as aluminum, POM, and other stainless materials. Entirely mechanical, actuator is made of 2 reinforced plastic belts that interlock together to form rigid telescopic column. It moves quickly while telescoping in and out and can provide horizontal or vertical motion. Read More

Spindle Actuators are powered with 24 Vdc motor.

April 6, 2010

Designed for small load capacities and low cycles, spindle actuators feature strokes up to 1,500 mm, push/pull force of 5,660 N, and speed of 25 mm/sec. They have electronic controlled emergency stop, anodized aluminum housing, and pushrod made of either aluminum or steel. With fully adjustable mounting, units are suited for lifting or pulling loads in environments with no space constraints. Actuators feature cut off at either end position using integrated limit switches. Read More

Bolster Extensions feature motorized design.

September 2, 2009

Designed for Quick Die eXchange (QDX) equipment, Motorized Bolster Extensions (MBEs) combine functionality of bolster extensions and push-pull systems into one integrated unit. They support die outside of press and move die in and out of press. Able to be loaded with overhead crane or fork-truck, each product features Rigid Chain Technology that allows die to be positioned several inches onto bolster without special attachments. Capacity ranges from 10-25 tons. Read More
