The 2-post cantilevered mechanical vertical conveyors (VRCs) employs an industry-best heavy duty SEW Eurodrive gear motor drive with instantaneous braking capability that ensures consistent, repeatable stopping and holding of the suspended carriage during loading and unloading. Because the carriage is cantilevered off the guide beams, there are no over-head restrictions limiting load height. The cantilever mechanical freight lift travels up to 100 feet with capacities to 6,000 pounds and carriage lengths up to 12 feet.
Mechanical VRCs are often used for material transfer between landings, multi-level buildings, and programmable/automated conveyor systems, which improves use of vertical building space, enhances stability and safety during load transfer, and increase manufacturing efficiency.
Freightlift mechanical VRC's standard maintenance-free high capacity rollers, load jam sensing system, and certified free-fall arrest carriage brakes make it the most reliable, durable, and safe VRC material lift available anywhere.
As with all Autoquip VRC lifts, the mechanical cantilever provides 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 the Freightlift® Brand of vertical reciprocating conveyors in America's heartland since 1991. Freightlift® VCRs are engineered to the highest standards of safety and reliability.
