Positech Corp. Introduces New Vertical Rail Lifter Under Positech Brand Name

Positech Corporation, the leading manufacturer of material handling equipment in North America, recently announced the introduction of its new Vertical Rail Lifter, under the Positech brand name.
               
The Vertical Rail Lifter Manipulator consists of a rigid vertical beam with moving rollers, which create a stable lifting platform and eliminates swinging of a cable or chain. It offers a lift capacity of 400 pounds along with a vertical lift range of up to 100 inches. The Vertical Rail Lifter can be used as an ergonomic lift assist for reach in, under, and around obstacles. This material handling solution solves a variety of applications such as roll handling. The Vertical Rail Lifter is a low maintenance industrial manipulator that does not require an air lubricator and is pneumatically operated; only requiring 90 psi of clean dry air. This lift assist can be mounted on either an overhead platform trolley or on a Positech Articulated Jib Boom. The Positech Vertical Rail Lifter has many available options including main post brakes, bridge brakes, and trolley platform brakes. It comes standard with 360° main post rotation. Customized end-effectors, operator controls and specialized pneumatic circuitry are available to meet application requirements.
