CPMT telescopic pillars from SKF Motion Technologies, Inc. can be integrated into surgical tables, procedure chairs, and similar medical equipment to enable optimized access for patients, support heavier loads, and deliver safe and efficient lifting performance. These complete plug-and-play systems ultimately provide OEM designers with technologies to meet demanding marketplace requirements, gain a competitive business edge, and equip healthcare facilities with reliable, safe, and virtually maintenance-free vertical motion solutions.
CPMT telescopic pillars combine a low retracted height (320 mm or 12.6 in.) with a high stroke range (up to 600 mm or 23.6 in.) to improve accessibility for patients without compromising the extended height necessary for procedures. Other capabilities include a high load-carrying capacity (up to 6,000 N or 1,350 lb), as well as fast positioning speeds (up to 34 mm/sec or 1.34 in./sec) and the ability to access pre-set positions for overall clinical efficiencies. CPMT pillars are fully tested and UL certified according to IEC 60601-1:2005.
The three-section telescopic pillars additionally offer design flexibility with a wide range of special features, such as a configuration option for high offset load capacity to impart high stiffness, cabling choices for connectors (DIN8 or flying leads cable), and customized threads on the outer profile for directly mounting additional actuators and/or brackets.
These ready-to-install systems simplify integration into equipment, minimize associated production costs, and have been engineered to perform virtually maintenance-free over their lifetime. Available accessories include control units with multiple ports and hand- and foot-activation switches, among others. Custom pillar solutions can be developed to meet specific application requirements.
