When a transmission chain breaks, you'd better have the MVA
Suspension devices such as transmission chains or belts are normally designed with a big safety factor. Nevertheless, it happens every so often that a chain breaks and the lifted load crashes down.
With SITEMA's new Mechanical Valve Actuator MVA, you can easily prevent this. The MVA connects the suspension device to the load and will notice immediately when the suspension device breaks. Without any detour via machine control, the integrated valve immediately activates the connected pneumatic SITEMA clamping head - the load is secured.
Of course you don't have to wait until the chain breaks to activate the clamping head - it can be controlled separately to secure the load for maintenance works or any other work that has to be carried out beneath the lifted load.
