U.S. Tsubaki Power Transmission, LLC is pleased to announce the launch of the Zip Chain Actuator. The Tsubaki Zip Chain Actuator is an electric linear actuator that provides high speeds and multi-point stopping in a compact footprint.
The Tsubaki Zip Chain Actuator is a linear actuator that “zips” together specially segmented chain using a custom designed sprocket. This “zipping” action creates a rigid actuating arm for use in push-pull applications that require high speeds, long lifetimes, small footprints, and/or high precision.
Up to now, engineers have been limited to using pneumatic/hydraulic cylinders, or large, bulky screw-style electrical actuators. Tsubaki offers a compact, high speed electric actuator that can replace pneumatic, hydraulic, and traditional electronic actuators. With higher speed, longer lifetime, multi-stop positioning, and efficient power transfer, all in a compact footprint, the Zip Chain Actuator can upgrade your application and make previously impractical applications possible.
