Linear chain for a grand design
14 July 2014
Push-pull actuation of heavy loads using the Linear Chain Actuator from R. A. Rodriguez is gaining wide application appeal, including a recent project on the television programme, Grand Designs.
A special profile with interlocking fingers allows the Linear Chain to become a rigid thrust device for pushing the glass door along its track. The chain rolls up into a compact magazine and is therefore perfectly suited to this application whose stroke length is the full 6m of the door way. Linear Chain also provides a constant stroke speed of 50mm/sec allowing the door to be opened or closed in two minutes.
