January 20, 2006—

SKF® TELEMAG TFG lifting columns offer solutions to deliver push or pull force for loads up to 2500N.  Suitable for a wide range of medical, industrial, and workplace applications, their rigid aluminum profiles and precision glide pads enable the columns to lift off-center loads without deflection. 

According to the company's press release, customoized gear technology contributes to high push force capabilities and low noise levels.


Telemag TFG lifting columns incorporate an SKF DC linear actuator (24V, 120V, or 230V) to extend or retract three telescopic aluminum profiles.  The columns run quietly and with minimal vibration at a maximum speed of 19mm/sec.  Stroke lengths up to 400mm can be achieved and a low retracted height accommodates applications where space may be minimal.


The self-locking lifting columns push and pull; feature integrated end-limit switches for stroke; and include cut-off switches and a backup nut at the end positions.  They are easy to mount and requirel little maintenance.


The actuators comply with IP30 and are tested in accordance with EN/UL 60601-1. Complete systems of actuators and controls can be engineered and optional accessories enable customization to satisfy particular application demands.
