DENVER--Caljan Rite-Hite US and Vaculex are offering the Vaculex ParceLift vacuum lift system to use with the Caljan Rite-Hite’s telescopic belt conveyors. The system uses Vaculex’ vacuum lift technology to grip and lifts packages to the correct ergonomic height in one movement. The system has a light, carbon fiber, articulating arm, which is said to improve the material handling capabilities for DCs, mail order houses, the parcel industry, and more.
The Vaculex ParceLift can travel into trailers to assist with loading and unloading, and can be used in confined spaces or areas with low headroom. The system lifts 88 lbs. and can be operated with either left or right-handed controls. It uses patented technology to ensure there is no risk in dropping the parcel. The non-return valve closes in the event of a power cut and the parcel is slowly lowered and remains attached.
Caljan Rite-Hite's Vaculex ParceLift will be introduced at the 2009 ProMat show, January 12-15 2009, in Caljan’s booth 3279 and at the Vaculex booth 2877.
