Details

The manufacturing of pharmaceutical gel capsules involves frequent removal and cleaning of the filling stations that heat and spread the thin layer of gel coating for the pills. These filling stations represent an ergonomic concern since they are often at eye level and require additional elevation to remove an unbalanced load. The lift is equipped with a swiveling ball joint for alignment purposes and a powered telescoping boom to reduce the footprint. Protective bellows help to seal the main lifting drive from the environment.
