The powered lifting solution was designed in response to a customer requirement in the machine construction industry to handle large 3-D Printer components.

The lifting equipment features a multi-purpose carriage with a pair of drop-down arms and central mounting hooks, as well as a demountable crane arm.

The bespoke fully powered stacker truck, with removable crane arm, enables the operator to lift and change the printer build tanks of powder material. This powered lift solution lifts the tanks to the desired height for unloading onto the printer.

In addition, this multi-purpose lifting solution and crane arm tool handle the waste tanks for removal from the 3-D Printer.

The lifting carriage and crane arm tool are mounted onto a heavy-duty mild steel painted stacker truck with electric lift. The printer components are lifted to a height of 2450mm. The lifting equipment features a safety electric height limiter, with over-ride facility on the machine’s control panel.
