The RigiBelt is made of reinforced plastic and stainless steel. The chain comes together much like a zipper to form a column. It moves quickly and quietly while telescoping in and out, and is stored in a compact magazine. The actuator can be used for any kind of positioning in medical equipment. It is especially suited where non-magnetic components are a must. All of the company’s linear telescopic actuators are entirely mechanical, which allow them to be environmentally friendly and suitable for clean-room conditions.
