  • Easy to Install
  • Easy to Maintain
  • Designed and manufactured to meet ANSI/ASME B20.1 Safety Standards for Conveyors
  • Structural Tube Guide Rails Allow for High
    Speed, Smooth Operations; Minimal Maintenance
    and Long Service Life.
  • High Performance Carriage Guides provide easy set up and minimum maintenance.  They are designed for high speed, continuous operation.
  • Dual Roller Chain Lift Design offers a Redundant
    Lifting System for Safe Operation

Controls & Electrical

  • Standard “All-In-One” Controller with Text Display Integrated on the Front Cover: No need to open any high voltage control panels to assist with troubleshooting, maintenance or set up. 
  • Closed Loop Vector Drive with Encoder: Encoder Monitors the motor and controls the brake for safety, and high speed operation.
    Carriage "stops" are performed by the drive brake, which extends the life of the mechanical motor brake.
  • Solid State Sensors: Easily set up and maintained, there are no moving parts to break, damage or adjust.

Carriage Safety Options:

Wildeck VRC's have a standard carriage freefall device. Optional safety carriage locking devices are available to prevent the accidental descent of a raised carriage. When the VRC arrives at an upper level stop, the system locks the carriage enclosure either through automatic (SafeLock™) or manual (DeckStop™) means. 

  • SafeLock™: Automatic; failsafe, the carriage locks automatically when arriving at the
    designated level.
  • DeckStop™: Manual; simple, and reliable. Locking arms provide a highly visible barrier at the loading area.

Additional Safety Options Include:

  • CargoLok™ Carriage Gate— Encloses and secures large rolling loads
  • ArmorCar™ Carriage — A fully-enclosed VRC carriage for additional freight safeguarding
    Heavy Duty Landing Level Gates – Used for heavy duty applications or applications prone to impact during load
