Lift for dairy industry
We had a job to design lift which is capable to lift boxes full with milk bags (20 kg) in certain rate. The speed had to be one box per 3,6 seconds in 24 hours a day.
This lifting machine consists of three main modules – two horizontal conveyors, vertical lift and automatics. When the box comes from the production line, it is guided and inserted to lift by conveyor. After that, pneumatically controlled lift crabs up to six boxes at a time and functions basically like vertical conveyor. Finally, the last conveyor transports boxes to the next machine.
This machine is controlled by sensors, automatics and will stop and start work automatically.
We designed this project in 2 months and then manufactured it with our business partners. The last stages were installing, final tune and workers training.
