Understanding Vertical Reciprocating Conveyors

If you have ever worked in a factory, warehouse, industrial plant, or almost any other institution, you more than likely have encountered a vertical reciprocating conveyor. What it does is transport supplies to different levels of a building, and this makes possible the transfer of some large, cumbersome items that otherwise would be very difficult and dangerous to move.

Suddenly, what could be impossible or very time-consuming takes only a few seconds, and workers can get on with their jobs in a safe and convenient manner. Businesses reap benefits, too, as fewer people are required to move and lift, saving shift time and preventing lost time due to heavy lifting accidents.

Vertical reciprocating conveyors can be installed outside, inside, and through floors when preferable. They provide access to areas like mezzanines, balconies, basements, and between levels in multiple story buildings. The lifting function is facilitated by a hydraulic actuating mechanism that raises and lowers a carriage within guide columns.

Obtaining a vertical reciprocating conveyor is a big decision and can be a daunting process.
