Zip Chain Lifter®

Realizes an innovative table lifter thanks to its high-speed lifting.


The Zip Chain Lifter directly transmits lifting thrust through Zip Chains.

Operates 3 to 10 times faster than hydraulic lifters. Supports high-frequency operation, which provides a maximum of 50% energy savings.

A 1,000kg type was added to our line-up of standardized products on April 1, 2019.

Features of Zip Chain Lifter


Achieves high-speed operation at a maximum lifting speed of 100m/min. This lifter works through a mechanism that directly pushes up the lift table at a stable speed in proportion to motor rpm, enabling lifting operation at a constant speed. Synchronized operation of multiple lifters is also possible.

It maintains a stable speed through the entire stroke range.

Hydraulic Lifter

The speed varies throughout the stroke. It slows down in the middle.

High-frequency operation

Unlike with hydraulic lifters, the Zip Chain Lifter does not need to increase the tank capacity of hydraulic units for higher-frequency operation.

Supports high-speed operation such as continuous lifting at a rate of one lift cycle per minute thanks to its efficient operation.

High-frequency operation

Stopping accuracy

Easily realizes multi-point stopping/multi-level positioning thanks to its simple control structure.

Stopping accuracy

Expected life

The Zip Chain Lifter has a mechanism that directly pushes the lift table, which places a smaller load on the hinges/rollers and enables longer life (over one million strokes).
