Column lifter as a load lift
Multiple mast column jack
Our technicians check the application for each project as early as the quotation phase. Depending on the platform size, but also the load capacity, we then decide whether one column, two columns or even four columns need to be used.
At a column lifter with two columns these are always arranged opposite each other. Whether these are installed on the short or long sides of the platform depends on which side the customer needs to load from. The arrangement also depends on the type of goods that need to be lifted.
Column jacks with 4 columns are used, for example, to lift cars or long, heavy goods to the next floor. Here the columns are arranged opposite each other on the long side of the platform.
Column lifters in everyday life
Column lifter with grid shaft
We not only delivered the jack and the shaft, but also carried out the ready-to-use assembly.
As you can clearly see from this project, a column jack does not require a pit in the ground. Thanks to the vertical lifting technology built into the mast, the platform can start 100mm above ground level.
We solved this 100mm from the hall level to the platform for this customer with a ramp. Our technicians installed these during installation.
Column lifters in industry
In addition, the lifting speed has been significantly increased compared to the standard.
Column jack with sheet metal shaft
Every now and then it happens that the customer does not want an open column jack or a grid shaft. This can be decided for optical reasons or because of heavy contamination in production halls.
With this project you can also see at first glance that no pit has been created here. The column lifter became direct on the hall floor assembled. Loading takes place via a ramp supplied by us with a classic pallet truck.
Double-leaf sheet steel doors with forced contacts were installed at both stops. The doors in the lower stop only open if the platform is in this position.
The column lifter operates in automatic mode, which means that you press a button once and the platform moves to the next floor. During this time, the employee can walk up the stairs to the next floor.
Outdoor column lifter
If there is no longer enough space in the warehouse or production, our column lifters can also be set up outdoors.
In this project we created a free-standing and self-supporting galvanized shaft on the outside of the building. It also travels in this shaft galvanized column jacks automatically up and down. No pit was provided here, just a solid foundation. On the access side in the lower stop, an asphalt wedge is used to overcome the construction height.
At the lower loading point there is a 2-wing. Revolving door with forced contact (red) installed. This door must be opened by hand.
An automatic roller shutter was installed at the upper stop. We used this so that environmental influences such as heat or cold can be better warded off.
Ideally, in projects like this we place the motor and the control inside the building so that they are better protected. This wasn't possible for this project, so we added a small canopy to avoid direct contact with water.
