Positech Corp. recently announced the introduction of its new vertical rail lifter, under the Positech brand name. It consists of a rigid vertical beam with moving rollers, which create a stable lifting platform and eliminates swinging of a cable or chain. It offers a lift capacity of 400 pounds along with a vertical lift range of up to 100 inches. It can be used as an ergonomic lift assist for reach in, under, and around obstacles. This material handling solution solves a variety of applications such as roll handling.
The lifter is a low maintenance industrial manipulator that does not require an air lubricator and is pneumatically operated; only requiring 90 psi of clean dry air. This lift assist can be mounted on either an overhead platform trolley or on a Positech Articulated Jib Boom. The Positech Vertical Rail Lifter has many available options including main post brakes, bridge brakes, and trolley platform brakes. It comes standard with 360Â° main post rotation. Customized end-effectors, operator controls and specialized pneumatic circuitry are available to meet application requirements.
