SKF announces the new SKF Telescopic pillars for ophthalmic equipment and infant care series CPMA and CPMB, a complete, optimized lifting solution for a range of medical equipment like ophthalmic chairs, ophthalmic tables and incubators that provides higher flexibility for integration into OEM’s design. The new CPMA and CPMB pillar solution meets performance demands and regulatory requirements of the medical industry. It also enhances medical and healthcare OEM’s competitive advantage by providing better value for money. The CPMA/CPMB series offer a complete IEC/UL compliant solution. Features include a universal power supply for global use, soft start/stop motion that allows silent lifting, a short retracted length and increased stroke length for greater accessibility as well as a wide degree of design flexibility overall. The reduction of noise and vibration provide greater comfort for both patients and operators.


”SKF Telescopic pillars make it easier for medical equipment manufacturers to meet the rising demand for ophthalmic equipment and incubators that deliver very accurate, ergonomic motion and increased functionality,” says Andreas Druegemoeller, SKF Global Medical Industry Manager.


SKF Telescopic pillars CPMA and CPMB are compact, two-section units with the ability to mix and match several performance features, such as allowing variable placement of the motor and inner and outer tubes.They also offer great load-carrying capacity up to 2000N direct driving load and up to 250 Nm in eccentric driving load and a unique benefit; a built-in universal power supply with a detachable cord that is compatible with nearly any voltage, frequency and plug type worldwide.


The cable-through for mains power with grounding, for operating device or for LAN, expands product design and differentiation possibilities. The low standby power, below 1W, minimizes energy consumption.

The products come with a variety of choices; the possibility to select the position of the outer tube, the motor, the connector, and the power in. In addition, accessories like socket boxes can be plugged in to get multiple outlet, inlet and operating device socket. These choices offer the customer a tailor-made solution to improve both operator accessibility and patient comfort.
