Thomson LC2000 Lifting Columns


PIM iconBrowse Part Numbers

Perfect for medical and ergonomic automation applications, Thomson's LC2000 Lifting Column gives your application a simple, all-in-one solution.

Made with a three-piece extrusion, 2000 N loading capacity and a telescoping leadscrew mechanism, the LC2000 provides an ideal extension-to-retraction ratio.

This self-supporting column is made of extruded anodized aluminum.  The aesthetic design requires no additional shrouding or covering.

Plus, the LC2000 has been EMC recognized for medical applications and the quiet operation meets CE standards for audible noise requirements. Protections, such as end of stroke limit switches, make this unit an ideal product for your application.

VIDEO: Synchronizing Multiple Lifting Columns

+ Show Description >

- Hide Description >

Thomson introduces the benefits of synchronizing multiple lifting columns using a single control device.  This video shows how to zero-out the encoder feedback devices on all columns - even with offset loading.  Can be used in applications such as large ergonomic workstations or medical table beds.
