Application examples

Zip Chain Actuator Sample Applications and Benefit

Pallet lifting/transfer unit

Pallet transfer

Benefits of adoption
  • Can be installed in the small space on the ceiling side.
  • Reduces the cycle time for conveyance by allowing for lifting at high speed.

Furnace Door Operation Mechanism

Furnace door operation

Benefits of adoption
  • Can be installed without protruding from the equipment.
  • Higher speed operation prevents temperatures inside the furnace from changing.
  • Environmentally friendly with less noise compared to pneumatic cylinders, and no oil mist.

Part Tray Depalletizer

Part trays are sequentially processed on the conveyor

Benefits of adoption
  • Large number of trays can be stacked since it is low to the floor and compact.
  • Highly accurate multi-point stopping at any desired position means it can handle trays of various heights.

Durability Tester

Evaluate repeat tensile strength performance

Benefits of adoption
  • Provides a wide stroke range and high accuracy multi-point stopping.
  • Enables high speed and high frequency evaluation by connecting to servomotors
  • Environmental friendly with no oil leaks, unlike hydraulic cylinders

Heavy load lifter

Benefits of adoption
  • Users can link two units together when the required thrust for one unit is not enough
  • Provides compact interlocking thanks to the use of dual shaft motors

Lifting work

High lift equipment

High speed high lifting

Benefits of adoption
  • Users can arrange two units in tandem when the required stroke for one unit is not enough. Furthermore, lift speed will double when operating two units at the same time.
  • Can be installed compactly, even with two units overlapping


Transfer to conveyors of different heights

Benefits of adoption
  • Lift unit can be accommodated compactly in the AGV
  • Height can be adjusted according to the conveyor height of the next process

Container sorting equipment

Sort containers to each conveyor for transfer

Benefits of adoption
  • Enables horizontal and push/pull lifting mechanisms with no protruding parts, allowing for compact equipment
  • Precise multi-point stopping enables horizontal transfer

Work lifting and transfer equipment

Work transferring

Benefits of adoption
  • Enables long strokes in lifting applications with no space at the top
  • Interlocking two units allows for lifting of heavy objects

Other Applications

Lifting and positioning of welding unit

Changing pallet orientation

Stacking stocker

Trolley lifting device

Ounting and dismounting of molds

Pallet lifting/transfer unit
