Movotec lifting systems are single-acting systems. This means that the load is lifted with the help of a hand crank or a motor, while it is lowered with the help of gravity. This is why a minimum weight is required to retract every cylinder. This is to be taken into consideration when lifting loads with a low weight or in the event of an uneven distribution of the load on the working surface. The function can be improved with optional or short hoses for low loads.
Movotec lifting systems are designed for loads that are unevenly distributed on the working surface. The maximum load on the working surface may not exceed the system's rated lifting capacity. The maximum load per cylinder may not exceed the rated lifting capacity divided by the number of cylinders x 1.5.
Movotec lifting systems are designed for a work cycle of 10%. This means that nine minutes of resting time are provided per minute of operating time. Movotec lifting systems are not designed for continuous operation.
Movotec lifting systems work best at operating temperatures between 0°C and 45°C.
Specific lengths are specified for all standard Movotec lifting systems (see catalog program page 6). Individual hose lengths can be ordered at the customer's request within the permissible range. A ratio of tube lengths of 1:3 should be maintained. (Minimum hose length 0.5 m - maximum hose length 5 m).
The hydraulic lines to connect the pump to the lifting cylinders are to be laid so that the bending radius of the hoses is not less than 50 mm.
Movotec lifting systems are tested regularly to ensure the flawless functioning of the system over at least 10,000 complete up / down cycles.
