Vertical Reciprocating Conveyors (VRC) are a cost-effective and flexible solution to traditional freight elevators. A VRC is defined as a reciprocating (alternating up and down) power or gravity actuated lift that receives objects or material only (not designed to carry passengers or an operator) onto a carrier and then transmits these objects vertically between two or more fixed elevations.
Vertical Reciprocating Conveyor
Vertical reciprocating lifts, like other types of conveyor, are used to provide a more efficient movement and/or storage of material within a manufacturing, retail, wholesale, or distribution facility – especially where one or more overhead storage or process areas are utilized.
VRCs can be operated automatically or manually, and are available in a wide variety of lifting capacities, speeds, carrier footprint sizes, and compatibilities for virtually any operating environment (outdoor, explosion-proof, clean room, low or high temperatures, etc.).
