Goods lift in the warehouse

Today, we would like to introduce a classic from our product range: a goods lift for a warehouse in a manufacturing company. 
Since it is used numerous times in slightly modified forms, we would like to focus on the standard equipment we typically provide.

Optimization of warehouse space

Insight into the installation situation: Before discussing the equipment details, we would like to give you an insight into the specific installation situation of our goods lift. The hydraulic lift is used in a warehouse for customizable containers. These containers can be assembled into modular office buildings, creating flexible and expandable workspaces.

Efficient use of storage space: To fully exploit the potential of the company premises, it was necessary to make the second level of the parts warehouse accessible for larger packages. Previously, this level could only be reached via stairs, so only lightweight goods could be stored there. For accessing the second level, a column lift from our company was installed. The major advantage over a scissor lift table is that only a pit depth of 120 mm is required, so removing the upper concrete layer is sufficient to allow floor-level access. Since the elevator is designed as a through-loader, goods can be loaded on one side at the ground floor and unloaded on the opposite side on the upper floor.

Basic equipment of our goods lifts

Each of our goods lifts is customized individually according to the needs and specifications of our customers. This allows for a tailored solution that is precisely adapted to the respective requirements. Nevertheless, we offer basic equipment to ensure that our elevators meet the highest standards in terms of quality and safety. This basic equipment includes:

Automatic control

Nearly 95% of our goods lifts are equipped with automatic control. This allows for easy operation, similar to a passenger elevator: the door opens, the load is placed on the platform, and then the desired floor is selected. The platform then moves autonomously to the chosen level.

Soft start and stop

To ensure a quiet operation, the hydraulic lift features a soft start mechanism at both stops: both when leaving and entering each stop, the lift reduces its speed. This not only minimizes noise pollution but also ensures a smooth ride.

Pressure switch for load monitoring

An electronic pressure switch at the upper stop compares the existing pressure in the hydraulic system with the calculated target pressure. If the pressure is too high, the control system warns of an overload.

Hose burst test

Especially when the simplified goods lift needs to be inspected by an external expert after installation, an integrated hose burst test is very useful. The TÜV or DEKRA employee can simply open a ball valve on the drive unit to check whether all valves close securely and a crash of the elevator car is prevented.

Electromechanically secured access doors

To minimize the risk of falls from the upper stop and to ensure that no person can step unnoticed under the raised platform, our goods lifts are equipped with electromechanically secured access doors. The elevator control monitors whether the shaft accesses are closed and locked, and only allows the doors to open if the platform is actually located at the corresponding floor.

Enclosure of the goods lift

In addition to safety interlocks, we also offer a complete enclosure of the elevator upon request. For this goods lift, our customer chose a shaft made of planked hollow profile frames. The advantage: This solution is more cost-effective than a concrete or masonry shaft, and it ensures that the safety clearances are appropriate.
