LINAK is delivering more power, speed, safety and value to customers applications

Over the last 20 years, LINAK has watched global trends and developments and used that knowledge to develop cutting edge components for healthcare equipment. With more patients in need of care there’s an urgent demand for intelligent solutions that improve the comfort and safety of the patient while enabling efficient workflows for clinicians. In the modern healthcare industry, both power and speed are mandatory when developing new products while at the same time ensuring that all components provide immense value to the end user. LINAK has focused its efforts on developing innovative products to supplement our existing portfolio of strong electric actuators and lifting columns that will not just meet these needs but exceed them.

Versatile Power

Taking high-end medical applications to the next level, the LC3 is the most powerful 3-stage lifting column designed by LINAK to date. Bringing advanced power and speed to applications like operating tables, surgery chairs and X-Ray equipment, the LC3 is available in push versions ranging from 4,000 N to 6,000 N and pull versions up to 4,000 N.

The LC3 [KM1] was optimized to meet the needs of modern healthcare equipment and is available in two compact versions so it can be easily integrated into a variety of applications. Its ability to operate on the floor as well as from the ceiling makes it one of the most versatile lifting columns on the market. With more than 30 combinations of cables through the column to choose from, the LC3 was designed with flexibility in mind.

The LC3

Small but mighty

With industry leading install dimensions and a push force up to 2,500 N, the compact LA20 was designed specifically for applications where a strong force is required but a limited amount of space is available. Applications like wheelchairs, patient lifts, dental chairs, treatment tables and operating tables experience smooth, quiet movement from the small but mighty actuator.

Designed to meet similar demands that the LC3 faces, the LA20 was also developed with flexibility in mind. The actuator features flexible control options, an exchangeable cable for easy mounting and built-in electrical end-stop switches to improve the lifetime of the actuator.

The LA20

Safe lifting

The healthcare industry faces additional challenges in providing care for the aging population, patients suffering the effects of obesity and constant pressure to improve efficiencies and costs. With the introduction of the new LA40 PL to our portfolio of actuators designed to meet the needs of patient lifting, LINAK meets these challenges head on with outstanding product performance and value.

The LA40 PL handles heavy loads by delivering a push of 8,000 N at full stroke and adheres to the strict LINAK safety standards and testing requirements. To ensure the protection of both the patient and clinician, the actuator includes various safety features such as manual lowering in the event of power loss and built-in end stop switches and ratchet spline function to safeguard against potential injuries.

Quick movement

To meet the competitive demands for a high-performance actuator, LINAK developed the LA40 HP. Providing a solid push of 8,000 N and smooth, quick movement of more than 6 mm/sec at maximum load, the LA40 HP is a strong actuator that focuses on value. The LA40 HP was designed for a wide range of applications and is ideal for surgery and treatment tables, dental chairs and hospital beds.

The LA40 HP boasts an IPX6 Washable DURA™ rating, making it easy to clean and ideal for the strict demands of medical environments. With an advanced ratchet-spline, the LA40 HP provides greater safety for both patients and clinicians as it prevents potential crush injuries caused by moving parts.
