4XLift™ VRC Material Lift - The New Standard In Heavy Lifting

Stanley Vidmat roll-out tray cabinetStep up to the power of a 4XLift™ from Wildeck, the leading manufacturer of safer, more reliable vertical lifts. The heavy-duty four-post 4XLift™ includes, as standard, Wildeck's patented AutoSenz® D-Series Overload Detection System (U.S. Patent No. 7,408,317) that continuously monitors motor current and stops the lift in its tracks should a jam occur. No other VRC (Vertical Reciprocating Conveyor) provides such a high level of protection for your material and the VRC itself. A Wildeck 4XLift™ can be designed to move your toughest and heaviest loads between multiple levels in your facility. The "standard" 4XLift™ effortlessly transfers material weighing up to 15,000 lbs., while the "high load" unit moves loads up to 30,000 lbs. Higher load capacity 4-post lifts are also available, if required. The 4XLift™ sets a new standard for capacity, efficiency and safety.

4XLift™ Specifications:

    Standard - Up to 15,000 lbs.
    High Load - Up to 30,000 lbs. (higher load capacity designs available)
  • LIFTING SPEED: Standard travel speed is 20 fpm. Higher speeds available.

Southworth offers Elevating Worker Platforms for assembly or maintenance operations where large structures, such as aircraft or manufactured assemblies, must be accessed at varying heights.

These custom designed worker platforms eliminate the risks and the hassles commonly associated with ladders and scaffolding and provide the speed, flexibility, and security of a powered variable height work platform to create a more productive work environment.

Multi-Lift Platform

This platform is designed to travel up and down while carrying workers and several smaller lifts. Workers position the main lift at the appropriate height to access parts and material stock. Once items have been picked, they are placed on the smaller lifts so workers can position them at a comfortable height for assembly and packaging.
