Ergonomic products for material handling aim to improve worker safety and comfort while moving heavy loads. These products include specialized lifting equipment, adjustable height workstations, anti-fatigue mats, and more. By reducing the physical strain of repetitive lifting and bending, ergonomic products can prevent injuries and increase productivity in warehouse and industrial settings.
Pallet Positioners are ergonomic products that improve worker safety and productivity by eliminating the need for bending and stretching while loading or unloading pallets. They can be operated by foot or hydraulic controls to adjust the height of the pallet to a comfortable working level. Pallet positioners are ideal for warehouses, distribution centers, and manufacturing facilities.
Container Tilters assist in tilting and positioning large containers, crates, or pallets. They can improve efficiency and safety in warehouses or manufacturing facilities by enabling workers to access and manipulate container contents easily. These devices come in various sizes and configurations to meet different needs and can be operated manually or electronically.
Scissor Lifts lift and lower loads vertically. They feature a collapsible crisscrossing metal frame extending upward when hydraulic power activates them. Scissor lifts are commonly used in construction, maintenance, and warehouse operations, where workers need to access elevated areas or transport heavy materials. They provide a safe and efficient way to work at height, reducing the risk of injury or damage to goods.
Vaccum Hoist lifts and moves heavy objects. It comprises a vacuum pump, a suction pad or cup, and a control valve. The suction pad or cup is placed on the object to be lifted, and the vacuum pump creates a negative pressure that holds the object securely. Vacuum hoists are commonly used in manufacturing, construction, and warehousing industries to handle materials efficiently and safely.
