Push Pull Systems

Push Pull Systems

The essential feature of the Serapid Rigid Chains:  they can pull or push a load.

An alternative to the traditional systems, the Rigid Chain can be used for strokes longer than with endless screws, need no hydraulic fluids, and unlike winches, can move the load in both directions. The Serapid push chains consist of high mechanical precision links of a special shape that allows the chain to coil into a magazine for storage, but locks into a rigid column when extended.

The Rigid Chain is a safe, reliable and compact telescopic actuation mechanism that is environmentally friendly and works in harsh environments. It features positive, accurate and repetitive positioning, runs fast and smooth, and can be integrated into existing machines.
