Mechanical Lifts are material lifts that are well suited for multi-level applications, demanding faster speeds and high cycle rates. Thomas Conveyor provides Wildeck’s reliable chain drive lifting system which has been designed for the tough duty these applications require. These Mechanical Lifts provide a long and trouble-free service life. Take a close look at the standard features included; you’ll quickly realize a mechanical VRC gives you more. VRCs provide fast, efficient and convenient access to/from mezzanines, balconies, basements, and between levels in multiple story buildings and mezzanines. They can be installed for through-floor, interior/exterior applications or an unused elevator shaft. The principal components of VRCs include guide columns, carriage, and a mechanical or hydraulic actuating mechanism. With our electrical design capabilities, Thomas Conveyor can provide you with a complete customized Vertical Reciprocating Lift system that is either manually controlled, controlled by your conveyor controls or is fully automated controlling both the material lift and portions of your conveyor system. Vertical Reciprocating Conveyors are safer than using a forklift truck or manpower to move materials between levels and are less costly to operate and maintain than elevators.
