Warner Linear H-Track Electric Actuators for MRI Scanner Table

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 healthcare environments.

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.
