Vertical Reciprocating Conveyors (VRC)

Vertical Reciprocating Conveyors (VRCs) allow you to move materials in factories, warehouses, industrial plants, institutions, or anywhere that products or supplies need to move from one level to another. They are a cost effective, safe, and easy way to move materials from one elevation to another and are ideally suited for the safe and efficient movement of materials to a mezzanine, rack storage system with catwalks, or any new or existing upper floor level. Choose between manual or hydraulic freight lifts, all within a small footprint per your specifications.

All VRCs can be installed for through-floor, interior or exterior applications. The principal components of a VRC include guide columns, carriage and a mechanical or hydraulic actuating mechanism.
