Double Pillar Production Area Lift

Production Area Lift Description

PLM/2P/2000/3000/B/G

This Production Area Lift is a double pillar machine with a Safe Working Load of 2000 Kgs and a lift height of 3000mm. The lifting platform had a useable floor area of 1400 x 1200mm to allow either five stacks of plastic trays to be loaded or a standard pallet (1200 x 1000mm) using a hand pallet truck. The clearance height within the lift carriage was 1850mm. At the upper level, there was a landing plate to allow easy unloading. The Production Area Lift was constructed from mild steel with epoxy coated finish and was bolted to the floor without the need for a pit. Lifting with this Production Area Lift was 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 Safety of Machinery

The safety guard is constructed from 40 x 40 x 3mm mild steel box section and 3mm, 25mm aperture steel weld mesh to meet the requirements of PD 5304 Safety of Machinery. It enclosed the Production Area Lift to a height of 5300mm with a hinged door at each level through which the pallets can be loaded and unloaded. Each door is electrically interlocked to prevent the Production Area Lift being operated with a door open and in addition, the doors are mechanically locked closed whilst the Production Area Lift is running. Each door may only be opened when the lifting carriage is at the appropriate level.

Lift Carriage Ramp

The lifting carriage was fitted with a base plate to provide the load bearing platform. The lift carriage will come to within approximately 10mm of the floor and there will be a ramp similar to that shown below to allow the pallet to be loaded using a powered pallet truck. The ramp will be substantially robust to allow a fork lift truck to drive onto it in normal operation.

Production Area Lift Application Story

This Production Area Lift was required to elevate a Pallet (1200 x 1000 x 1800mm) from a ground floor level onto a mezzanine floor at a height of 3000mm. This particular Production Area Lift was loaded and unloaded from the front of the machine. This Production Area Lift can be mounted on an existing floor and therefore does not require a pit to be created with the requisite drainage issues.
