Double Pillar Lifter Description
This double pillar lifter is designed to lift and tip a 680 Litre container (1020
x 820 x 1210mm High) at a discharge height of 3200mm. The double pillar lifter is
constructed from Grade 304 stainless steel and is fully TIG welded throughout. Lifting
with the double pillar lifter 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.
This double pillar lifter is designed to be bolted to the floor.
Safety Guard to PD 5304:2005 Safety of Machinery
The safety guard is constructed from 40 x 40 x 3mm stainless steel box section and
3mm wire, 40mm aperture stainless steel weld mesh to meet the requirements of PD
5304:2005 Safety of Machinery. It would enclose the double pillar lifter to a height
of 2200mm on three sides with a hinged door on the fourth side. The guard door is
electrically and mechanically interlocked preventing the double pillar lifter from
operating with the door open. In addition, the guard door can only be opened when
the lifting carriage is at the full down position. The double pillar lifter control
system has provision for a ‘Call for Product’ signal to be connected.
Double Pillar Lifter Application Story
This double pillar lifter was required to lift and tip confectionery products into a conveyor storage system. A selection of different confectionery was lifted, tipped and spread onto the storage conveyor until a level of approximately 250mm was achieved. The confectionery was then fed off the storage conveyor onto another conveyor at the beginning of a packing line.
