Vertical Lift Conveyors Systems

At CSL, we understand the evolving demands of modern industries and the role vertical lift conveyor systems play in ensuring smooth, efficient operations. Our expertly made vertical machinery is thoughtfully designed, offering space-saving solutions with a minimal footprint – a valuable attribute in today’s space-conscious industries.

A vertical elevator guarantees the safe transit of goods between varied heights or multiple floors. Our systems adeptly manage a diverse range of products with their versatile design, from boxes, crates, and totes to sacks, pallets, and more.

Another key benefit of a vertical elevator is the impressive throughput puts that can be achieved. They handle up to 2,000 products per hour, up to 25m in height, whether it’s a light 75kg product or a 2-ton pallet.

    “As this was a new facility it was difficult to visualise the conveyor system prior to the mezzanine floor installation, but CSL provided a detailed 3D drawing which included both the mezzanine and the conveyors which brought clarity to this. The install process was smooth and the end results have allowed us to increase control, flexibility & volumes”
