Zip Chain Lifter

Tsubaki's innovative lifter "Zip Chain Lifter" achieves 3 to 10 times faster speed than hydraulic lifter. Zip Chain Lifter utilizes our unique chain "Zip Chain" which is composed of two chains and each of the two chains is engaged to form a single column like a zipper. This mechanism allows for directly transmitting lift thrust.
