Handling Concepts' Lifting and Rotate Columns Material Handling Equipment Solution

What Are Lift And Rotate Columns?

Lift and rotate columns compromise a fixed base column and a gripping system that can rotate loads 180 degrees. The gripping system can be raised and lowered, allowing the machine to function alongside an assembly line.

They are electrically powered, using high-capacity hoists and gears for the lifting and rotating of components. The gripping systems utilise an electro-hydraulic pump, removing every aspect of manual handling from the worker. The machine is controlled by a programmable logic controller (PLC).

Lift and rotate columns provide a safe and effective way to manipulate very large components and can lift loads from 100kg to 10 tons. The fixed position of the columns with the PLC control provides distance between the worker and the components that are being rotated.

The gripper systems can be customised to the client’s application and provide many industries an alternative to traditional handling equipment, such as industrial manipulators or overheard telescopic masts.

Why Are Lift And Rotate Columns Used?

An advanced material handling solution, lift and rotate columns are especially useful in medical and construction industries. They remove the need for manual handling and provide a solution to challenging tasks that cannot be undertaken by a worker.

The PLC control gives the worker full oversight of the machine and allows it to be operated only when needed. This keeps the application safe for all workers and improves the efficiency of the workplace, as lift and rotate columns can be timed to run with assembly lines.

Lifting and Rotate Columns Grippers

The Benefits Of Using Lift And Rotate Columns

Lift and rotate columns can increase productivity and reduce injuries in the workplace. They can benefit your workers and business and can help in various ways:

  • Lifting something too heavy for a person to handle manually.
  • Raising an item to a location that is not easily accessible for the person.
  • Reducing the risk of Musculoskeletal injuries and repetitive strain injury through incorrect manual handling.
  • Avoid employee fatigue.
  • Improving the efficiency of the production line.
  • Reducing the risk of workplace accidents and damage to products
Lifting and Rotate Columns Duplicates for Assembly Line

Handling Concepts' Lift and Rotate Column Solution

This lift and rotate column solution lifts 2m wide components from the assembly line, rotates them 180 degrees, and lowers them again.

With components weighing up to 1000kg, the lift and rotate column provides a solution to the problem of workers being unable to physically handle the load.

Hydraulic grippers suit the different sized components and have sensors available to guide the operator with positioning the gripper around the object.

A PLC control allows the worker to operate the machine from a safe distance. The control is simple to use and low effort for the worker.

This lift and rotate column solution removed the need for workers to perform lifting of bulk loads. This improved production efficiency and reduced the risk of musculoskeletal injuries.
