Lifting columns – for reliable height adjustment
Danish MOVETEC offers very versatile lifting columns. You will have seen them at work in height-adjustable desks in offices. Essentially a telescopic device, a lifting column is a high-tech electrical “arm” that, when connected to an electric motor, can raise and lower or pull and push to the side.
MOVETEC has developed a broad range of high-quality aluminium lifting column solutions. We deliver lifting columns individually, in pairs and in systems comprising up to 32 lifting columns, which can adjust e.g. a complete conveyor belt or packing station.
Lifting columns help to make workplaces ergonomically better. Lifting columns are used not only in office environments. They are also widely applied in industry, at laboratories and in the healthcare sector, where they help to relieve the strain of heavy lifting and give users an opportunity to adjust their workplace to fit. Lifting columns can also be used to raise sofas and tables at care homes, in hospitals and even in private households.
MOVETEC develops lifting columns in-house. We have recently launched a new type of column comprised of three elements (there are usually two). The new column facilitates a shorter minimum stroke length in combination with a longer maximum stroke length. Our systems are adapted, assembled and tested at our workshops in Middelfart (Denmark) and then shipped to dealers and end users across the globe. Lifting columns are often component parts of the base or skeleton of workstations and larger workspace solutions.
To offer as broad a range of lifting columns as possible, MOVETEC produces square, rectangular/flat and round designs. MOVETEC profiles are also produced in Denmark.
MOVETEC lifting columns can be controlled using the up and down buttons that most of us recognise from our office desks, but we also supply more advanced solutions that can be programmed to operate with multiple pre-set heights. Customers can also choose a wireless Bluetooth control unit that communicates with another wireless device or via a Smartphone.
Lifting columns are very widely used in industry, automation, energy/utilities, agriculture, ventilation, solar energy, logistics/conveyors, industrial kitchens, the medical industry, hospitals and care sector, marine applications, vehicles/trailers and agricultural machinery. In fact, they are applied everywhere you need to raise, lower, push or pull.
MOVETEC can supply lifting columns with max. load of up to 10,000 N. If you require max. load in excess of 10,000 N, we can connect and synchronise multiple lifting columns, i.e. up to 32 lifting columns is our standard offer!
