PFlow says its M Series 2-Post Mechanical Material Lifts moves materials faster than forklifts

PFlow Industries, the founder of the vertical reciprocating conveyor (VRC) industry, has released an alternative to forklifts, its M Series 2-Post Mechanical Material Lifts.

The company says the lifts move materials faster and more safely than forklifts, with standard travel speed of 25 ft. (7.6 m) per minute, with up to 400 ft. (122 m) per minute available. 

With its ability to lift up to 10,000 lbs. (4.5 T), reach an unlimited number of floor levels and perform under continuous use applications, the M Series is suitable for high-speed, high-cycle and automated material handling applications. 

Each M Series VRC is equipped with advanced safety features, including limit switches that control carriage travel, shutting off the motor and engaging the brake when tripped or power is lost.

Additionally, chain sensors, certified safety cams, chain tensioners, and guides ensure safe operation by detecting chain tension loss and chain failure and preventing uncontrolled carriage descent.
