October 9, 2018 by Manufacturing AUTOMATION
October 9, 2018 – Liftomatic Material Handling has introduced a customized portable drum handler for C1 D1 applications.
The C1D1-DCM power drum transporter is a powered and self-contained handling device for lifting, lowering and moving all types of steel, plastic and fibre drums.
The unit incorporates a completely electrically enclosed and spark-free power drive, as well as power lift and lower for moving drums quickly and efficiently by any operator in all plants, warehouses and laboratories. Weight capacities up to 1,000 pounds are available.
The models offer users a number of benefits, including protection for EE- and EX-rated environments. Features include a steering/throttle handle for forward/reverse drive, lift and lower features and a tight turning radius for tight aisle and restricted workspace facilities. The transporter offers a standard lift height of 20” to allow for palletizing on standard or spill pallets and handles up to 1000# per drum. The power system can negotiate inclines and offers the ability to load/unload trucks and shipping containers. Additional features include a counterbalanced configuration for “head-on” work with pallets, cabinets, etc., and a heavy-duty deep-cycle industrial grade battery. The C1D1-DCM uses Liftomatic’s Parrot-Beak clamping system for safe handling of steel, plastic and fibre drums. An optional charger is available.
