Hydraulic Straddle Vertical Reciprocating Conveyor for Through-Loading in Material Lift, Mezzanine, and Conveyor Applications.
The 2-post hydraulic straddle vertical conveyor (VRCs) utilizes an industry-best 4 to 1 cable reeving system. It minimizes stresses in the lifting cables and maximizes the amount of travel produced per inch of cylinder stroke. Because the carriage is straddled between the guide beams, carriage sizes can be larger than with most cantilevered designs. The Freightlift straddle hydraulic family of vertical lifts travel up to 28 feet. they have capacities up to 6,000 pounds. Also, their carriage lengths up to 12 feet.
Hydraulic VRCs are for material transfer between landings, mezzanine access, and conveyor systems, which improves use of vertical building space, enhances stability and safety during load transfer, and increase manufacturing efficiency.
Freightlift’s standard maintenance-free high capacity rollers, automatic re-pressurization and leveling system, and free-fall arrest velocity fuses make it the most reliable, durable, and safe VRC material lift available anywhere.
As with all Autoquip VRC lifts, the Hydraulic Straddle VRC offers the customer flexibility to select any number of standard options or to specify one or more custom engineered features to fit a specific application.
Autoquip has designed and manufactured vertical reciprocating conveyors in America’s heartland since 1991. Engineered to the highest standards of safety and reliability.
