Power to improve performance, safety, and comfort

In some situations, the amount of power defines the performance level of a given application. The LC electric lifting column series is a family of powerful LINAK® products aimed at delivering reliable lifting, push or pull, in healthcare equipment requiring high performance.

In healthcare, applications such as operating tables, X-ray equipment and other advanced applications rely on a power surplus to lift heavy loads at high speed. Efficiency, ergonomics and patient comfort depend on it.

The LINAK® LC series includes high-performance lifting columns that are able to deliver the powerful push or pull movement. One of the ‘family members’ – the LC3 – was developed to deliver fast and strong vertical lifting in high-end medical applications, such as operating tables and X-ray equipment. Combining the control box CO71 (350 W) with the LC3 in a system will make the LC3 move almost anything – and quickly, with a maximum speed of 18.0 mm/s in a 6,000 N version and 29.0 mm/s in a 4,000 N version.

It comes in 2-stage, 3-stage, and heavy-duty versions. Which one you need depends on the application but they are all able to lift up to 4,000 N, 5,000 N or 6,000 N in push and 4,000 N in pull. With a safety factor of 5 in both load directions, the LC3 is an extremely solid and stable lifting column, ideal for surgery and examination environments, where even small movements matter a lot.

It is all about reliability, stability, and high-performance – every time, every day.
