Zip Chain Revolution: Power Transmission Solutions That Transform Operations


In this 45-minute Webinar, a product specialist of power transmission components discusses a revolutionary high-speed electronic actuator designed to help solve process bottlenecks and unique applications that require a small installation footprint.

The design utilizes an exclusive segmented roller chain that is “zipped” together using a unique 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. An alternative to pneumatic/hydraulic cylinders or bulky screw-style electrical actuators, this compact, high-speed electric actuator offers higher speeds and cycle frequencies than traditional actuation technologies.

An audience Q&A follows the technical presentation.
