Caljan Rite-Hite US, a manufacturer of advanced material handling solutions for loading and unloading loose loaded cargo, has joined with Vaculex, a manufacturer of lifting aids based on vacuum technology, to introduce the Vaculex ParceLift vacuum lift system. The Vaculex ParceLift system is designed specifically as an option for use with the Caljan Rite-Hite line of telescopic belt conveyors.
Utilizing vacuum lift technology, the Vaculex ParceLift grips and lifts packages to the correct ergonomic height in one efficient movement. High productivity is maintained without the risk of repetitive strain injuries. The system features a light, carbon fiber articulating arm that provides ease of product movement for distribution centers, mail order houses, and parcel industry and other applications.
The Vaculex ParceLift easily travels into trailers to assist with loading and unloading, and is suitable for use in confined spaces or areas with low headroom. The system lifts up to 88 pounds and can be operated with either left- or right-handed controls. To enhance safety, the system uses technology to ensure there is no risk in dropping the parcel. The non-return valve closes in the event of a power cut and the parcel is slowly lowered and remains attached.
