Rail lifter

November 1, 2009


Suitable for low-head room applications, Positech’s vertical rail lifter has a rigid vertical beam with moving rollers that create a stable lifting platform and eliminate swinging of a cable or chain. Offering a lift capacity of 400 lbs. and a vertical lift range up to 100 in., it can be used as an ergonomic lift assist to reach in, under and around obstacles. A low-maintenance industrial manipulator, the unit is pneumatically operated, requiring only 90psi of clean, dry air. Available options include main post, bridge and trolley platform brakes; customized end-effectors; operator controls; and pneumatic circuitry.
