Mechanical Straddle VRC

Vertical Reciprocating Conveyor for High Speed/High Through-Put Applications

The 2-post mechanical straddle vertical lifts (VRCs) employs an industry-best heavy-duty SEW Eurodrive gear motor drive with instantaneous braking capability that ensures consistent, repeatable stopping and holding of the suspended carriage during loading and unloading. Due to the carriage being straddled between the guide beams, carriage sizes can be larger. The mechanical straddle freight lift travels up to 100 ft. with capacities to 6,000 lbs. and carriage lengths up to 12 ft.
