Thanks to the patented rigid chain, the expected service life has a minimum of one million operating cycles.
Answers to the most frequently asked questions about our innovative rigid chain system Marathon Lift
The Marathon Lift is designed for a broad range of applications. Find answers to frequently asked questions about applications and specifications here. Should you have any queries, please do not hesitate to contact us. We will be delighted to assist you personally.
As the rigid chain installed in the Marathon Lift moves vertically based on a lantern gear drive, it can be moved continuously and independent of position. The accuracy depends on motor control and/or the braking performance.
The Marathon Lift does not have a self-locking function.
Control of multiple systems is possible by using servo motors or through mechanical synchronisation.
Pushing applications with horizontal chain guide can be easily carried out.
Thanks to the maintenance-free Marathon chain joint, additional lubrication is not required. To prevent dust adhesion or contamination with particles from abrasive processes, the chain can be sealed with our wax lubricant WKS-W to provide additional protection for the self-lubricating chain joint.
The system is designed for use in temperatures from 0 °C to 100 °C.
It is possible to provide the self-lubricating sintered bushings with a special high-temperature lubricant to extend the temperature range from -30 °C to 250 °C.
In any case, when used in extreme temperatures, we recommend testing all components of the system for their suitability for the individual requirements of your application.
