Thursday, April 12, 2012

STERLING HEIGHTS, Mich. (April 12, 2012) – Serapid, Inc., a leading supplier of lifts and transfer systems technology, has produced an innovative triple mast station for an engineering and scientific services firm engaged in providing support and services to the US Department of Defense.

The Telemast triple mast station is made of anodized aluminum tubes telescoping inside each other, able to lift a heavy load smoothly and quietly, and is operated by remote control. The Telemast is powered up/down electro-mechanically with no hydraulics or pneumatics involved. Operated by a single motor, the 3 masts are synchronized and operate seamlessly as one unit; the positioning is done with a programmable cam switch at the base. The Telemast is powered by Serapid’s unique rigid chain column, allowing the stable lift and positioning of as much as 750 lbs. with accuracy within 5mm. The mast can travel 11 ft. in 30 seconds, from 4 feet retracted to 15 feet extended, and will come down smoothly even in case of high side forces (wind).

“This triple mast station can hold its position indefinitely, and is rigid and stable during use, even in harsh conditions”, commented Said Lounis, President and founder of Serapid Inc., “The Rigid Chain column itself has years of proven reliability in many industries, and we are pleased to add this unique product to our portfolio. Serapid is committed to continued innovation and product development”.
