Modular Conveyor Express, Oconto, Wis., introduced a Gripper Elevator Vertical Lift for single product elevation or lowering. MC gripper elevator

Completely modular, the gripper elevator allows for reconfigurations in the line such as shortening, extending, raising or lowering. Available in an "S" or "C" configuration, the gripper elevator firmly, yet gently, grips product to securely elevate or lower it and does so using a minimal floor space footprint. Products travel in line with continuous transport through the elevation change and seamlessly discharge onto the take-away conveyor.

Suitable for the food and beverage industry, products such as glass jars, cans, plastic containers, pouches and small cases can be conveyed at speeds up to 200 feet per minute. Available in stainless steel or powder-coated carbon steel frame construction, all gripper elevators feature a hand wheel that can be located on the right or left side and can make quick width adjustments from 0-11 inches. Height can also be easily adjusted in 6-inch increments.
