What Are The Different Size and Weight Limitations For My Pallet on a Conveyor Elevator?

on Friday, October 19, 2018 By | Craig Newberry | 0 Comments | Conveyor System Designs Configurable Conveyor Technology
Vertical transfer units (VTUs – otherwise known as pallet elevators)  can perform functions that would otherwise require another piece – or multiple pieces – of equipment within a conveyor system. This solution saves the space that would have been taken up by ancillary equipment and makes the automated conveyor system more efficient to operate, assemble, and maintain. But one question we frequently receive about these vertical transfer units is about size and weight capacities.
