Ketterer moves heavy loads smoothly ensuring work is conducted ergonomically
The globally successful manufacturer Ketterer in Germany drives power products all over the world and is one of the market leaders in the mechanical and motorised drive technology sector. Ketterer provides innovative design solutions by incorporating their working mechanisms including gears, motor drives, electric motor spindle drives, manual spindle drives, lifting systems (screens/cupboards) bevel gears and worm gears including controls, electronic and software, together with individual product innovations and customer specific solutions to meet customer specific requirements.
The following customer specific solution has been developed for use with operating tables and X-ray tables, when it’s particularly important that they be easy to handle and capable of carrying heavy weights. Ketterer has developed a linear drive that completely integrates into the lifting column of the treatment table without any disruptive components sticking out. This enables optimal freedom of motion for doctors and staff as well as unproblematic treatment, even for heavy patients. Thus, the height adjustment system fulfills all requirements for ergonomic work in doctor’s offices and clinics.
The drive’s linear motion is generated by a gear, motor-spindle combination. The table’s height can be adjusted seamlessly with a manual switch. Furthermore, the drive is extremely quiet and maintenance-free – two major pluses in the field of medicine. The compact drive is flexibly customizable for lifting columns of all sizes and for varying load requirements, making it suitable for a whole array of further uses – for example, in laboratories, workshops or even in kitchen furniture.
