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.
Kyle Thomson, Lifting Columns Product Line Manager, discusses various medical and ergonomic applications for Thomson lifting columns and provides details on the many functionalities and benefits of column technology. Also include is an interview with a leading manufacturing engineer from Videojet who shares how they integrated lifting columns into their manufacturing processes to increase employee safety.

* Control will shut off if duty cycle is exceeded and automatically reset when cooled off.
** DCG-280 monitors the encoder pulses and not the motor currents. If the pulses arrive too slowly or not at all it will stop the motion of the lifting column.
