Double Pillar Automated Pallet Lift

Automated Pallet Lift Description

PLM/1500/5060/B/G

This automated pallet lift is a double pillar machine with a Safe Working Load of 1500 Kgs and a lift height of 5060mm. The pallets were fed onto the lifting platform via a powered roller track system. The lifting platform was also fitted with a powered roller track system. At the upper level, the pallets were driven out of the lifting platform automatically onto a further powered roller track system. The automated pallet lift was constructed from mild steel with a painted finish and was bolted to the floor and the concrete mezzanine floor that it was feeding. Lifting with this automated pallet lift is accomplished via chains driven by a motor gearbox mounted at the top of the one column with a crossover shaft to the other column.

Safety Guard to PD 5304:2005 Safety of Machinery

This automated pallet lift was mounted into an existing lift shaft and only the loading and unloading apertures required guarding to meet the requirements of PD 5304:2005 Safety of Machinery. At the ground floor level, there was a powered roller track system which fed pallets into the lifting carriage which was guarded using 40 x 40 x 3mm mild steel box section and 40mm aperture, 3mm wire mild steel weld mesh. At the upper level, there was a powered roller track system which fed pallets from the lift. This system was fitted with a safety guard constructed from 40 x 40 x 3mm mild steel box section and 40mm aperture, 3mm wire mild steel weld mesh.

Automated Pallet Lift Application Story

This automated pallet lift was required to lift Cardboard Palletainers of frozen vegetables up to a mezzanine floor packing hall. The palletainers were loaded onto a powered roller track system and automatically fed into the lifting carriage. At the upper level, the palletainers were driven out onto another powered roller track system. This automated pallet lift had a ‘Z’ loading configuration so that the palletainers were loaded at the front and unloaded at the back of the machine at the upper level. This automated pallet lift was mounted in an existing lift shaft which already had a pit but normally, it can be mounted on an existing floor and does not require a pit.
