Interroll has added a new spiral lift unit to the its Modular Conveyor Platform (MCP).
Florian Kley, the responsible global product manager at Interroll, said: “Thanks to our new spiral lift, we are able to make our module portfolio complete and therefore allow our customers to construct a conveying line that also works vertically.”
The spiral lift has a small footprint providing a cost effective handling alternative to traditional incline conveyors.
The bridgeable height between the inward and outward transfer points, whose position can be selected in 45-degree increments, is a maximum of four meters if a drive is being used. Depending on the required power, the Spiral Lift can be driven by a gear or drum motor, as an option, whereby transport speeds of 0.1 to 0.5 metres per second can be achieved. The Spiral Lift from Interroll is initially being introduced with a transport width of 500 millimetres and a maximum load-bearing capacity of 30 kilograms per meter; additional sizes and versions will follow.
