Collaborating to provide the right conveyor solution

02 September 2019

When Foodmek was asked to design a conveyor system to integrate into a food industry customer’s production line it required a solution to manoeuvre the pallets from ground level up to the working height of the conveyor so the goods could be unloaded safely and efficiently and feed the production line. 

It was important that manual handling and operator involvement was minimised to reduce the risk of employee injury from unnecessary lifting, bending and stretching
The company asked Advanced Handling for advice about the lifting and handling element of the project as it was outside of its own technical remit.

Advanced Handling designed and manufactured a bespoke Double Static Scissor Lift Table in food-grade stainless steel featuring a roller-ball top, automatic roll-off guards and an anti-tilt base and lid. These modifications made the scissor lift table easy and safe to use while ensuring the lift complied with stringent health and safety regulations.

Collaboratively, Foodmek and Advanced Handling supplied the end customer with a suitable conveying solution for the food processing facility. The roller-ball scissor lift table raised the pallets to the correct height so the operator could manoeuvre the product safely and ergonomically from the pallet and onto the conveyor.
