Waukesha, WI – Wildeck, Inc. is pleased to announce that their line of RiderLifts™ will be showcased at ProMat’s 2019 conference and expo. Located in booth S1241, event attendees will see firsthand how the company’s line of rideable material lifts save time, improve safety, reduce lost time accidents and increase material handling efficiency.
Available in three different capacity sizes (XL, 2XL and 4XL), Wildeck’s line of RiderLifts™ comply with ASME A17.1/CSA B44 “Safety Code for Elevators and Escalators.” Equipped with two synchronized direct-acting hydraulic cylinders, the XL model offers a capacity of 5,000 pounds and carriage sizes up to 102 square feet. Four synchronized direct-acting hydraulic cylinders increase the capacity of the 2XL and 4XL models to 8,000 pounds and 10,000 pounds, respectively. Additionally, carriage size increases to a maximum of 163 square feet on the 2XL model and 204 square feet on the 4XL model.
Classified as a type B rideable material lift, Wildeck’s RiderLift™ allows authorized personnel to safely travel between levels with their materials at a fraction of the cost of a passenger or freight elevator. In addition to maximizing the efficiencies gained from mezzanine platforms, rack systems and pick modules, each device is constructed with heavy-duty welded structural components, making it the ideal solution for industrial applications.
Wildeck, Inc. to Display XpressLift™ VRC at 2019 ProMat Show
Waukesha, WI – Wildeck, Inc. is pleased to announce that they will display their XpressLift™ VRC at ProMat’s 2019 conference and expo. A functioning demonstration unit will be on display in booth S1241 for show participants interested in improving the efficiency of their automated facility.
The XpressLift™ has been specifically designed to efficiently integrate vertical lifting into automated conveyor systems. Designed and manufactured to meet ANSI/ASME – B20.1 “Safety Standards for Conveyors,” the XpressLift™ VRC can quickly transfer totes or cartons of materials typically weighing up to 75 pounds at speeds up to 350 feet per minute. Facilities looking to increase automation and shorten product delivery times to customers will appreciate the ease with which the device can be installed, maintained and integrated into new and existing conveyor systems.
Another noteworthy feature of the XpressLift™ VRC design is the closed-loop AC vector drive. By mounting the AC vector drive directly on the motor at the top of the lift, efficiency is maximized and heat is more effectively dissipated. Additionally, an encoder continuously monitors the motor and controls the braking system for safety, allowing for ultra-smooth, high-speed lift operation. Carriage stopping is also performed by the AC vector drive, extending the life of the mechanical motor brake.
Headquartered in Waukesha, WI, with additional manufacturing operations in Goodyear, AZ, Wildeck, Inc. is a member of MHI (Material Handling Industry Association), MHEDA (Material Handling Equipment Distributors Association), FMA (Fabricators & Manufacturers Association, International) and the NAEC (National Association of Elevator Contractors).
Wildeck is the largest manufacturer of structural steel mezzanine platforms, manual and automated vertical lifts (VRCs), rideable material lifts (RMLs) and safety guarding products in North America. A complete line of industrial rolling ladders, custom-designed work platforms and other high access products are also available for the aviation assembly and aircraft maintenance industries. Wildeck products improve supply chain productivity and provide additional capacity, efficiency and safety in manufacturing plants, warehouses, distribution centers, third party logistics operations, automobile dealerships, retail backrooms and many other facilities. They are sold through a dedicated and experienced network of customer-service-oriented dealers and systems integrators nationwide. Wildeck, www.wildeck.com
