Lifters are used to connect two or more conveyor sections at differing levels.

Lifters work with toothed belts and three-phase motors with converters. More torque can be provided with a servo-motor in combination with a rotary encoder for positioning. For easier maintenance access, the lifter motor is mounted at the lower diverting point.

Depending on customer requirements, lifters can be connected to a number of different load moving devices, such as roller conveyors, belt conveyors, accumulation conveyors, etc. To monitor the gap between stationary and moving units, photoelectric detectors or light grids are used.

According to applicable safety regulation, the lifters are equipped with perimeter guards. All pull-in points are safeguarded according to the European Machinery Directive as well as all other applicable European norms and standards.
