Powerful drive solution for nursing beds

Versatile and low-noise: The rectangular DC20 heavy-duty lifting column is ideal for use in hospital and nursing beds as well as other applications in the nursing and treatment area. A pushing force of up to 2000 newtons and a high adjustment speed of maximum 48 mm/s ensures that the height can be adjusted reliably.

The heavy-duty lifting column is compact and extremely stable. Thanks to these characteristics, it is especially well suited to high off-centre loads. The DC20 is available with many configuration options, including a safety limit switch, additional limit switch or safety spindle nut.
