Our Technology

At the core of our technology is the Rigid Chain (RCT) – the chain that can push. It consists of interlocking links that behave like a chain, yet lock like a rigid bar, providing a safe, reliable and compact telescopic actuation mechanism that is environmentally friendly and works in harsh environments.

Our custom solutions range from individual components to turnkey stage systems, and encompass a wide variety of applications in industries as diverse as architecture, nuclear, medical technology, defense, automation, quick die change, engineering, manufacturing, theater and entertainment; products and systems include die carts and die handling systems, heavy duty actuators, lift tables, mechanical lifts, stage lifts and scenery movement.
