KG lifting and tipping device SKV 300 C3T, usually called a mobile single column lift, is used mainly in the food industry in order to lift and tip the standard 200 or 300 litre buggy into forming machines, fillers,grinders, mixers etc. This single column lift can be manufactured to suit barrels, small containers or other fields of applica-tion. It can also be used in other industries such as chemical, pharmaceutical and engineering workshops.The single column lift is designed to comply with ergonomic demands to avoid elements of risk of injury to personnel and to make production more efficient.
Design and function
The design consists of 3 main parts, column, steering guide and lifting frame. The column is formed from plate and attached to the bottom frame, which is constructed from fully welded single hollow section. The bottom frame is provided with two fixed low front wheels and two swivel braked wheels. The lifting frame is mainly constructed from fully welded single hollow section and is fixed to the steering guide, which runs inside the column.
The vertical movement is effected by electro-mechanical driving a roller chain. The container to be tipped is positioned into the lifting frame and for safety reasons the lifting frame is provided with a retaining mechanism, which secures the container in position.The single column lift is driven by an electric gear box motor with brake. The operation is controlled by electrical push buttons where the “up”-button is used for lifting and tipping and the “down”-button for the return to the floor level. The control box is provided with an emergency stop button. The tipping movement starts when the lifting frame is guided into the tipping roller, bolted to the column, and simultanously the steering guide continues upwards in the column.
For safety reasons all driving- and operating functions are fully enclosed and guarded to prevent accidents. Furthermore, the steering guide is provided with a chain safety device, which prevents the container from falling down, in case of a chain break-down.
