Mechanical Straddle VRC

The 2-post mechanical straddle vertical lifts (VRCs) employ 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. Due to the carriage being straddled between the guide beams, carriage sizes can be larger.

Vertical Reciprocating Conveyor for High Speed/High Through-Put Applications

The 2-post mechanical straddle vertical lifts (VRCs) employ 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. Due to the carriage being straddled between the guide beams, carriage sizes can be larger. The mechanical straddle freight lift travels up to 100 ft. with capacities of 6,000 lbs. and carriage lengths up to 12 ft.

Durability and Quality

  • High-capacity steel rollers with spiral-wound, Teflon-impregnated bushings produce smooth and reliable carriage movement.
  • Heavy-duty SEW Eurodrive gear motor drive extends the life of the freight lift for years and years of rugged, reliable service.
  • A synchronized, dual-chain lifting system ensures that the carriage remains level throughout the lift’s vertical travel, even with off-centered loads.
  • Minimum ¼ inch thick steel reinforced platform minimizes deck deflection, maximizes load stability, and extends the life of the platform deck.
  • Structural steel guide beams ensure consistent, reliable tracking of carriage rollers and extend the life of the beams
  • Spring-loaded guides mounted to the carriage restrict lateral movement and reduce the noise of the suspended carriage as it travels in the guide beams.

Simplicity

  • Synchronized lifting chains allow for wider carriage widths.
  • Mechanical design enables up to 100 feet of total vertical travel.
  • Mechanical vertical conveyors are programmable and can be called or sent to multiple levels in a building or conveyor system.
  • Straddle carriage design allows for longer carriage lengths, permits through-loading, and minimizes carriage heights to an extremely low 4.25 inches.

Safety

Maintenance and Warranty

  • Heavy-duty SEW Eurodrive gear motor requires minimal service and maintenance.
  • Maintenance-free carriage rollers require no lubrication.
  • Eurodrive gear motor’s manual brake release overrides handle to help in lift start-up and troubleshooting.
  • Straddle design places much lower stress on the guide rollers, extending useful life.
  • Autoquip offers a 1-year warranty on all parts and a 5-year warranty on the lift structure as a promise that you’ve purchased the industry’s most reliable VRC.
