  • Zip Chain Lifter®

50kg Zip Chain Lifter®

A Zip Chain Lifter with an allowable lifting weight of 50kg.

We have pursued a compact design/free layout to meet customer needs for a more compact lifter optimized for lighter loads.

50kg ZSLz
Available for any lifting device

Optimal in processes where synchronization with equipment in front/behind the lifter or stopping accuracy is required.

  • Supplying mechanical parts
  • Lifting equipment such as electrical, electronic, liquid-crystal, semiconductor, and small precision devices in production lines.


We have added easy-to-handle functions for lifting small objects/light loads to complement the high-speed lifting and high repeatable stopping accuracy of previous models.

High-speed lifting
The high-speed specification enables top-class high-speed lifting at 1.2 seconds when lifting stroke is 500mm.
High repeatable stopping accuracy (less than ± 1mm)
Positioning control is easier than with conventional electrical/hydraulic lifters thanks to its mechanism where the Zip Chain directly pushes up the lift table, which enables high repeatable stopping accuracy at less than ± 1mm.
Can be installed in an A2 size space.
This model can be installed in a 580mm x 400mm space (A2 size equivalent), and convey objects coming from four directions. You can dramatically improve layout flexibility in production/logistic lines.
Completely modularized and easy to move the installation location to match your layout.
No need for troublesome equipment/pumps like with air/hydraulic lifters. It's easy to move the installation location.


The standard specification and high-speed specification are standard.
