Warner Linear H-Track Electric Actuators for MRI Scanner Table
Linear actuators are used to raise and lower patient tables on Magnetic
Resonance Imaging (MRI) scanners. The beds are lowered to allow for easier
patient access. Once the patient is positioned, the table is raised to the precise
height required to enter the scanner.
Warner Linear engineers have developed the new H-Track electric actuator with
self-contained hydraulic actuation to provide reliable movement on scanner tables
and other medical devices. The innovative H-Track provides the smooth, softersounding
performance of hydraulics without the space requirements and expense
of a full-size hydraulic system, making it ideal for use in hospital and other
The unique, patented valve and reservoir design provides significant space
savings compared to competitive models. The compact footprint allows the
H-Track to fit in the limited space available in MRI scanners. Units resist drifting
and hold a load stationary without power, allowing the H-Track to hold the patient
tables at their desired scanning height. These completely sealed actuators feature
an anodized aluminum housing that resists corrosion and provides protection from
dust and humidity.
With a robust force rating of up to 4,800 lbs. (21 kN) and precise load setting
control, reliable H-Track actuators are designed to meet the demands of repeated
raising and lowering of scan tables over years of service.
