  • Conveyor Farms

    Vertical conveyors are space-saving conveyors that help in a variety of industries. A vertical conveyor can help move products and other materials in a vertical direction, saving vital factory floor space. Conveyors are often used to move food, machine parts, loose materials, and much more inside factories of all kinds. One new use for vertical conveyors is for vertical farming. This form of farming is designed to help create sustainable farms in urban areas and in office or commercial buildings. The innovative design creates farming shelves on each level of...

  • The Many Names of Vertical Conveyors

    Why would one machine, with the same basic elements and functions regardless of the particular model have more then one name? In the case of the vertical conveyors, the numerous names used to refer to it are due to misconceptions and a couple other products just a bit too similar. For example, vertical conveyors are often referred to as freight elevators although vertical conveyors are only used to go between two levels while freight elevators are used for multiple levels. Also, elevators are almost always moved up and down by...

  • Space Saving with Vertical Conveyors

    Vertical conveyor systems are highly useful in manufacturing settings where long conveyor tracks are not possible. Vertical conveyors can also move products from one level to another, which is beneficial for maximizing factory space- both on the floor and in the air. Many factories and manufacturing companies can benefit from the use of vertical conveyor systems in their businesses. The best places to use a vertical conveyor is anywhere you have a space issue but still need to move products from one place to another. Most vertical conveyors are designed...

Vertical Conveyors

A type of material handling equipment, vertical conveyors are used to move products or materials up or down between multi-levels instead of traditional horizontal movement, and are commonly used in intermittent flow operations and in environments where limited horizontal space is available. Able to carry heavy loads over great vertical distances, vertical conveyors have two main types: vertical reciprocating conveyors and vertical continuous conveyors.

Also referred to as mezzanine lifts, platform lifts and material elevators, vertical conveyors are used in applications such as bulk material handling, unit material handling, baggage handling, warehousing, distribution and packaging. Industries that utilize vertical lift conveyors include aerospace, automotive, industrial manufacturing, construction, pharmaceutical, agricultural, fitness equipment and food processing. There are many advantages when it comes to using vertical conveyors for material handling applications. Vertical conveyors reduce labor expense and time spent as well as low operating costs and easy repositioning. Vertical conveyors are ideal for short distances and are capable of long distances as well. Vertical reciprocating conveyors (VRCs) have some advantages over continuous vertical conveyors as well, offering multiple cartons per lift and less noise and footprint incase. However, continuous vertical conveyors have advantages over VRCs in terms of greater throughput.

Vertical conveyors are designed to offer ease of product movement between multiple levels. Vertical reciprocating conveyors are designed to receive products on one level, lift or lower them vertically, unload them at another level and then return to the starting point. VRCs principally consist of a single platform or carriage, a tower unit, guide columns and an actuating mechanism. VRC come in two basic types of actuating systems: hydraulic, used for carriage sizes of up to 10’by 10’ and vertical lifts up to 22’ with the ability to stop at two levels; and mechanical, used when larger carriages and vertical lifts are required and can stop at three or more levels. VRCs can come in four different lift designs; straddle, cantilever, four post and double mast. Continuous vertical conveyors are designed to accept products horizontally on one level, move them vertically and unload them horizontally at another level in a continuous non-stop motion without having to return to the starting point. Products are loaded into the conveyor by a feed conveyor that is positioned in front of the continuous vertical conveyor. Continuous vertical conveyors consist of one or multiple platforms or carriages, a tower unit, guide columns and either hydraulic or mechanical actuating mechanisms. Modern vertical conveyor systems are equipped not only to move parts across vertical distances, but also to curve, divert, lift and sort products and packages as part of complete automated systems.
