Vertical Material Lifting Conveyor: Hydraulic Or Electric

A vertical conveyor is a material lifting conveyor that operates vertically.  It features a very basic design, which carriage, a support column, and a hydraulic or electric lifting mechanism.  This device is used to receive, lift, lower, and deliver objects, vehicles, and materials between various elevations in a multistory facility.  VRCs, as they are sometimes also called, cannot be used to transport passengers.  Anything else, however, can be lifted with these highly versatile material handling tools.  

The list of vertical markets that can use VRCs is too voluminous to itemize in the scope of this article.  Common industry examples include, but are not limited to, retail facilities, factories, wholesaler warehouses, and construction sites.  The advantage they offer over other types of lifts and conveyors is that of versatility.  They have been proven to be useful in over 12,000 applications.  Any facility that requires the movement of a broad spectrum of inventory should consider using vertical reciprocating conveyors as the main transport mechanism between multiple elevations. 


Vertical conveyors offer a number of clear advantages over other types of lifts. Just a few examples include, but are not limited to, the following:

·  They can be customized to specific environments, allowing for new construction installation or installation into older buildings’ unused freight elevator shafts. 

·  They use only a minimum of floor space for the column and carriage assembly.  This design allows for maximum utilization of the vertical cube to move materials so more floor space can be used for organized storage and safe movement of other vehicles and personnel.

·  Reciprocating conveyors can be used to deliver a finished product to another floor where it can be packaged and loaded onto trucks for immediate shipment.

·  Larger conveyors can be used to transport pallet jacks, fork trucks, and hand carts from floor to floor.

The vertical conveyors we currently supply can be used to move between 2,000 to 4,000 pounds to carry loads over vertical distances up to 22 feet.  Some manufacturers make models that can handle up to 200,000 pounds for heavy duty loads in massive facilities.  If you require something of this magnitude, call Vision Masters to request a special order configuration customized to your industry, building, and process flow needs.
