Could a Topper Lift Help You Top Your Packaging and Distribution Efficiency?
Efficiency of your packaging and distribution facility decreasing? Have you considered a Topper Lift?
The Changing-Elevation Topper Lift from Span Tech is able to tackle tricky angles, elevation changes and product orientation changes without a programmable logic controller and with a much smaller footprint than other options, increasing overall productivity and adaptability.
When considering whether a Topper Lift is right for you and your company, ask yourself these four questions.
1. Do We Need to Raise Or Lower Materials As Part of Our Operation?
Sometimes production requires materials to be raised or lowered due to assembly line orientation. A custom conveyor, such as the Topper Lift, may be the most efficient solution.
2. Do We Need To Save Floor Space?
Are you tight on space and looking for a conveyor with a smaller footprint? With the Topper Lift, you’re able to tackle tricky angles and elevation changes within virtually any space you have to work with. The upper chain of the Topper Lift drapes downward and rides on the lower transport conveyor, allowing it to act as a moving top keeper. With a combination of high-friction and conventional chain types, the Topper Lift is able to incline and decline products at angles of up to 60 degrees. This is a much steeper angle of incline or decline than would otherwise be possible. By holding items gently but securely against the conveyor as they move, the Topper Lift helps put steep angles within your reach, no matter the size of your facility.
3. Does Orientation Of Our Materials Matter?
If the orientation of your materials is of the utmost importance, the Topper Lift can help. When using the changing-elevation Topper Lift, your products will stay completely upright. The upper chain guides ensure that your products won’t tip over while ascending or descending on the conveyor. And the Topper Lift can handle both rigid and flexible products, so you don’t have to worry about any potential breakage.
4. Are The Items We’re Handling Fairly Sturdy?
If the items you’re moving are fairly strong, a Topper Lift can handle them with ease. That includes most bagged, boxed or frozen items. But if they’re more on the delicate side, you may want to look into a different conveyor system or solution that is better suited for fragile items.
