LIFTING CRATES MADE EASY.

HOVMAND_Ergonomic ways to handle crates and boxes

 

CRATE HANDLING DEVICE AND CRATE LIFTER AS A SOLUTION.

When goods need to be packed, moved to the side, stored and distributed, then most companies use crates such as Euro containers, KLT or other stacking boxes. These are now an important and integrated part of many logistics systems. However, even in offices, libraries or retailers, heavy cartons, boxes and crates are moved every day - from metal boxes and Euroboxes to meat crates and up to, and including, wine crates made of wood in various dimensions, with or without lids and optionally also for stacking.

Because jerky movements and unfavourable torsion of the upper body can occur numerously during load transport and crate handling, the spine is always exposed to massive loads. When lifting and carrying industrial crates or transport boxes with a large weight, the back must be additionally bent.

The result: An unfavourable asymmetric pressure distribution across the spinal discs. As a result, the compressive forces are significantly higher at points due to the long leverage by the arms. This also applies when only small loads are moved.

Hovmand provides devices which are suitable for health-friendly handling of all types of crates in the form of mobile lifting aids. Taking your requirements into account, we can construct your individual roller lifter from our modular system for lifting solutions. We will select the suitable solution for you from a range of options for lifting column loads, chassis and hoists for mounting on rollers. We can configure your product within a few seconds with our Virtual Engineering app. So you can see your solution right away in 3D.

LIFTING AND TRANSPORTING CRATES

Continuous bending to remove goods from crates, cartons or boxes quickly causes back pain and promotes long-term musculoskeletal damage. Modern lifting aids and/or crate grippers are also suitable forloading racking systems in a way which is gentle on your body. Cartons can be pushed directly from the pallet onto a platform which is assembled on the hoist lift and raised so that working in an upright position is possible. If the goods are packed in crates, then you can pick them up with a fork which is secured on the hoist lift and move them to the desired height.

It is also possible to transport crates and cartons directly from a pallet to the destination without intermediate storage using a hoist lift. The pallet can be conveniently driven under with this unit so that the loads° can be lifted with the appropriate lifting equipment°.

LIFTING AND TRANSPORTING SEVERAL CRATES SIMULTANEOUSLY

In order to save time, you can also simultaneously lift and transport numerous crates with one Hovmand hoist lift . One member of staff can execute this activity in a healthy manner. The use of an additional person is not necessary. This makes it easy to maintain distance rules and makes transporting crates even more efficient.

In addition, the crates can be stacked higher to make even better use of the storage area.

RACK REMOVAL AND FILLING

Individual cartons and industrial crates must be partially lifted from racks in warehouses and logistic centres. Removal often has to be done above head height. This is particularly strenuous and dangerous. A hoist lift can be utilised for these tasks. The cartons or boxes, which are stored on the° rack, can be quickly pushed onto a platform assembled on the hoist lift or picked up with a fork which grips the outside of the crate and then easily moved to the correct workplace.

TILTING OUT CRATES

If crates need to be tilted to empty the contents, then Hovmand can provide a simple and efficient solution. Utilising a robust fork tool, the crate or KLT is gripped and emptied easily and precisely using a manually operated tilting function.
