Lifting axes

Our lifting axes can lift loads of up to 1000 kg, perfect for rigid and off-centered loading. It can also be combined with a chain hoist.

The lifting axes are equipped with hardened and ground recirculating ball bearing guides and low maintenance recirculating ball bearing guide sleds to allow linear stroke movements with minimal force. Operators will be able to lift payloads safely, comfortably, and with a high level of control with our pneumatically powered lifting axes.
