LinearChain Push-Pull Actuation Devices
The Grob LinearChain is able to move loads both horizontally and vertically. Made of specially formed links, whose geometry prevents the chain from buckling under load, the LinearChain works like a conventional linear actuator.
The Grob LinearChain push-pull chains are made from precision chain links which enable the chain to push as well as pull heavy loads. The chain links have a special profile with interlocking fingers at one end which enables the chain to roll or fold-up for efficient storage in one direction and form a rigid thrust device in the other direction.
Available in three basic sizes with stroke lengths in excess of 5 meters, the LinearChain has a maximum push force of up to 35,000 N.
Compact drive units for the chain and storage magazines are also readily available for all chain sizes.
