Advance Lifts Highlights its Hydraulic Vertical Reciprocating Conveyors (VRC)

Move Goods and Materials Between Two Levels Quickly and Safely

Advance Lifts, a leading North American manufacturer of industrial scissor lift tables and dock lifts, highlights its Hydraulic Vertical Reciprocating Conveyors (VRC) designed to enhance efficiency and safety in a variety of applications, providing a seamless solution for vertical material transport between two levels quickly and safely. These conveyors are ideal for use in retail, food processing, material handling, construction, automotive, manufacturing, industrial, aerospace manufacturing, fabricating & metalworking large-scale printing, warehousing, and cannabis applications where efficient and reliable vertical transport is essential.

Hydraulic VRCs can be configured for C, Z, or L loading patterns between floor levels and are available in a wide variety of platform sizes and capacities. They may be floor-mounted or pit-mounted, offering versatile installation options. Hydraulic VRCs are generally less expensive than mechanical units, making them ideal for two-level operations.

These conveyors are designed with durability in mind, capable of handling heavy loads and withstanding the rigors of regular operation. They are built with high-quality components and advanced hydraulic systems, guaranteeing smooth and precise movement of goods. The conveyors are equipped with multiple safety features to protect both operators and materials. These include advanced control systems, safety enclosures, and interlocking gates, all designed to minimize the risk of accidents and ensure compliance with industry standards.

All controllers for these units are assembled in Advance Lifts' UL-listed panel shop, ensuring high-quality and reliable control systems. The VRCs conform to the ASME B20.1 National Code and VRC Guidelines, which ensures adherence to stringent safety standards. These units feature a locking system to prevent freefall in the event of hydraulic failure, providing enhanced safety.

The machine-grade cylinders are made in-house, guaranteeing rigorous quality control and ease of factory support, which results in shorter downtimes. The simple hydraulic system of the VRCs makes them easy to maintain, and the remote hydraulic power unit can be located in a convenient, easily accessible area for periodic maintenance.

These hydraulic VRCs are made in America and come with a 5-year structural warranty and a 1-year electrical/hydraulic warranty, reflecting Advance Lifts' commitment to quality and customer satisfaction.
