Wildeck Inc.’s new V-Lift unit is a hydraulically operated, cantilever material lift designed for crowded manufacturing facilities that are shifting towards leaner operation.

The unit can be installed in either a shaftway or free-standing with optional structural framing, and incorporates features such as guide columns constructed of six-inch wide-flange structural steel, and a state-of-the art hydraulic ram with dual pistons for a smooth lifting motion.

The standardV-Lift carriage dimension is six feet by six feet, with a lifting capacity up to 3,000 lbs. Material can be loaded or unloaded in a “C,” “Z,” or 90-degree pattern.

Safety interlocks prevent the vertical reciprocating conveyer (VRC) from moving unless the gates are fully closed, and the gates are designed to open only when the carriage is at a designated level.

Additional safety features include mechanical stops for positive leveling with the upper deck, redundant overload protection to prevent the carriage from lifting if loaded to more than 120 per cent of its rated capacity, and velocity fuses that control VRC decent.
