Vertical Lift Gripper Elevator Conveyors cover minimal floor space and transports product over elevation changes.
A Vertical Lift Gripper Conveyor or gripper elevator conveyor is a compact solution to move products from one elevation to another using minimal floor space. Vertical lift gripper elevators are ideal for transporting product vertically up or down where an incline belt conveyor is not applicable. Suitable for a wide range of products including glass jars, cans, plastic containers, pouches and cases, the vertical lift gripper can be conveyed at speeds up to 200 feet per minute. The side gripper belts gently secure the product traveling in line with continuous transport through the elevation change and a seamless discharge onto a take-away conveyor. The width of the gripper belts can be quickly adjusted through a mechanical hand wheel to allow for adjustments from 0 – 11 inches. The height can be easily adjusted in 6-inch increments.
Vertical lift gripper elevators from Modular Conveyor Express are available in “z” or “c” configurations. The elevator is available in a stainless steel or powder-coated carbon steel frame construction. Complete pre-wired factory control packages are available.
