An OEM of specialized paper converting equipment to the paper processing industry required a lift within their continuous duty palletizer to support their tooling which acts as a buffer allowing product to accumulate while the palletizer processes a batch load.
Handling Specialty engineered a purpose built hydraulic scissor lift with a continuous running HPU, double acting NFPA cylinders and an adjustable stroke limiting device. The lift is fully raised as the client’s tooling extends allowing product to accumulate, building up a batch load. The lift indexes down until such time as the main palletizing unit has discharged its load and raises to ‘marry’ with the new batch load, allowing the tooling to be retracted and accumulation to continue. The lift then returns to its raised position until the next cycle.
- Lift can support offset load of 1,800 lbs., 95” from center of lift
- Continuous running, 24 cycles per hour, 24/7
- Acts as buffer to accumulate product while palletizer processes previous batch
