Column Lifts

Our Column Lifts can be specially designed to achieve any specific height or transfer sequence. Receiver can be sized to meet any specific container. All Column Lifts fabricated for sanitary service are constructed using USDA & FDA accepted designs and finish standards. When required all welds are ground smooth and flush, the receivers are designed to minimize crevices and decrease cleaning time.

Our engineering department has experience in designing receivers for thousands of containers with Column Lifts. Our lifts can handle standard items such as meat buggies and vats, and also off-the-shelf items such as plastic tubs, cardboard boxes, fiber drums and barrels. Receivers can be designed for any shape of container, from round, square and hexagonal, or for containers that require special lifting apparatuses such as forks, flat platforms, hooks or clamps. Receivers can also be designed with live (roller) bottoms to adapt to existing conveyors.

Our engineering staff has experience in designing lifts for your special requirements. Our ability to design a custom unit for your special application is what makes us an industry leader. Column Lifts can have receivers designed for multiple containers, multiple dump heights, low ceiling clearance and high dump angles, as well as pivot points (slew), automatic operation (PLC) and integrated safety mechanisms.

Standard Features Include:

  • Up to 5000 lb. capacity
  • Designed to lift, pivot, rotate, invert
  • Manual or automatic operation
  • Receivers for gaylord, barrel or various combinations
  • Special designs available
  • 36” to 30’-0” dump height
  • Chain or Ball Screw Drive
