Gripper Elevator Lowerator
The Gripper Elevator/Lowerator has the advantage of securely elevating or lowering product using very little floor space. This unit firmly but gently grips product from the same elevation as the in-line conveyor and provides continuous transport through an elevation change. Grippers then release the product through a seamless discharge onto a take-away conveyor.
Standard speeds of up to 200 feet per minute can be expected on the gripper elevator, as well as adjusts from 0" - 11" with the turn of a single hand wheel.
The modular features easily allow for future field modification of:
- Elevation of in-feed and/or discharge
- “C” or “S” configuration
- Hand wheel location
Product Handling Applications
Suitable for use in many industries, gripper elevators are used for single product elevation or lowering. Typical products include:
- plastic containers
- bundles of tissue
- cartons/small cases
