A box elevator or case elevator is a lifting device to get products automatically from one level to another
The internal logistics, there are several ways to product flows to rise or fall. A widely used solution ascent or descent tires. Such a conveyor is positioned at an angle to a height difference to overcome, has the advantage that there is also a certain distance traveled. The disadvantage is that much useful ground lost by the space that the necessary supports of the conveyor to complete. By using a product or vertical lift conveyor can be on a smaller footprint larger height difference to be bridged. As a vertical conveyor can be chosen for a continuous or a discontinuous carrier-carrier. Continuous conveyors come in the form of a spiral conveyor, conveyor or an L-pad with a fork lift and lift-equipped product.
Batch and continuous conveyors A discontinuous carrier gets the product through a platform or a platform mounted on the conveyor belt or conveyor and bring this platform including the product and then to another level. Such a conveyor is, the cycle time required for the import and export and the up / down, only to be used for lower capacities. For higher capacities, the continuous conveyors more suitable. In this group there are two different solutions. One can choose a spiral conveyor or a continuous product lift. Both solutions can handle multiple products.
Spiral Conveyors Spiral conveyor has the advantage that it can be used a minimum of control software. The disadvantage is that a relatively large area required compared to other product lifts and the vertical transport is time-consuming because of the upheavals that makes conveyor. In addition, certain products because they deform at an angle to be transported. Consider using plastic bottles that can be bundled shrink when the film is not cooled can permanently deform. A product is a spiral conveyor at only two corners worn, due to the dip angle and the radius in which the conveyor belt, use a product support surface during transport will not be through a spiral conveyor. Furthermore, the drive motor of a spiral conveyor always be controlled with an inverter to excessive wear of the conveyor to avoid. One should also take into account the fact that the products at each time are allowed to enter. Do the products have to stand together on imports than the product can jam so the conveyer belt can break. It is therefore recommended for proper dosing to ensure that the spiral conveyor is placed. Also, the products at the most centered spriraaltransporteurs offered as eccentric load on the conveyor belt can lead to excessive wear. Where, for whatever reason, product jams is likely to very large fins that break down the conveyor belt which is a significant loss of production may cause the entire production line which is associated with huge additional costs.
L-pad or conveyor lift for the upright transport of products to choose from a continuous product elevator which is available in two versions: an L-or mat conveyor lift and a forklift. An L-pad conveyor or elevator is a freight elevator with the products on a carrier are between several chains hanging. Where the risk of product contamination is significant when using traditional chains. Such a lift as possible disadvantage that more control is needed, but the required land area is again considerably less contrast compared to a spiral conveyor. The height difference with only one drive motor can be bridged virtually unlimited. To bridge a greater height is required for spiral conveyors for multiple systems on top of each other. Another disadvantage of an L-conveyor or pad lift is difficult to monitor product transition at the input which the incorrect taking products to large damages could result and leaving, like the spiral conveyor, incurring significant additional costs expected from loss of production.
A fork lift fork lift offers more flexibility in setup options than an L-lift and conveyor mat or spiraatransproteur. A fork lift is a lift which product products with a fork of a record carrier, and then on another level again on a different carrier back into place. Such a fork lift offers the possibility to products at an angle of 90 degrees or run. Therefore, the number of possible combinations and export a lot bigger. With the ability to transport into or out of the lift to slide, a forklift can also be used as vertical sorter. With such a sorting system at any level can be imported and exported products, and you can take an elevator up and down both product market. Ability, and thus the energy, the drive is a forklift is lower than in other systems because only the product weight to be transported and the forks are in balance in the ascending and descending part. Another difference between the forklift and an L-or mat conveyor lift is the complexity of the control. With an L-conveyor or elevator to the mat and exports be synchronized, while in a forklift is not required. This creates a control substantially easier.
