Spring base for tensile versions available
SITEMA spring base now available for Safety Catchers series KR/T and KRP/T (tensile versions)
The proven and reliable SITEMA spring base, which has long been available for compressive load version Safety Catchers (K, KR, KRP), is now also available for tensile load versions KR/T and KRP/T for all standard sizes.
The advantages of the spring base for compressive load versions are valid also for the tensile load versions:
- Even if the load slowly sinks down during normal operation, e.g. due to a small leakage at the lifting actuators, it is not necessary to lift the load before any downward movement.
- The crucial safety criterion “Safety Catcher can only be released if the rod is free of load", is satisfied without restriction.
- The spring-base also compensates for any lateral misalignment between the load guide elements and the clamping rod. Therefore, other compensation techniques are not necessary.
