Engineered Material Handling Solutions
Alum-a-Lift has years of experience providing material handling solutions for the food and beverage industry. We offer compact, mobile lifts that eliminate the need for forklifts.
The standard Alum-a-Lift chassis offers proven lifting power and allows for heavier and dynamic side loads. Our end-effectors provide precise manipulation designed specifically for the object you need to handle.
Our dedicated engineers identify and address challenges such as confined spaces, narrow aisles, overhead obstacles, and more. If clearance for forward-protruding legs is unavailable, we offer counterbalanced lifts.
Stainless Steel Lifters Available
Our custom food and beverage lifts are available in full or partial stainless steel construction for any system meant to come in direct contact with food or sanitary materials.
Alum-a-Lifts are suitable for rigorous cleaning practices, with constructions available for caustic cleaners and hose-down wash-down (up to IP65).
Built-to-Order Lifts for Seamless Integration
When designing a roll handling device for the food industry, our engineers account for interfaces with the packaging equipment in the roll lifter’s ultimate design to eliminate interferences. A clamping end-effector may differ for a 20, 30, or 55 gallon drum and for lifting and dumping drums of the same size in fiber, metal, and plastic.
A drum dumping lift that raises drums up to a mezzanine may use a telescoping mast section, while the lift that dumps the same drums into a hopper may be equipped with powered wrists to allow forward dumping or a trunion to allow side dumping. A drum hoist or drum handler is optimized for the equipment it will interact with and the environment is will operate in.
Food and Beverage lifts we build include:
