Many logistics systems use stacking boxes of different types as an integrated part of their merchandise management. This applies, for example, to the food industry as well as other manufacturing industries, libraries or retail. Due to the standardisation possibilities, crates in the appropriate dimensions are commonplace. However, handling even lightweight crates could overstress the spines of the employees concerned. Hovmand crate lifters provide effective and ergonomic solutions to this challenge.

LIFTING CRATES MADE EASY.

The use of crate lifters makes sense even for light loads. When handling crates, jerky movements and torsion of the upper body always occur and can have an adverse effect. Sometimes when positioning crates, the back is even bent under stress. This results in asymmetrical pressure distribution across the spinal discs. Stresses of this kind can cause permanent discomfort, accidents and musculoskeletal disorders. Lifting aids such as crate lifters help to prevent such situations.

EFFECTIVELY STORE AND DISTRIBUTE KLTS OR EURO CONTAINERS WITH CRATE LIFTERS

Small load carriers (KLTs) such as Euro containers are widely used as transport and storage containers and are standardised by the VDA (Association of the German Automotive Industry). They are robust, stackable and available in various dimensions. They can be found in logistics centres, in shops and in production facilities, among others. The need for lifting and handling solutions for the smart crates is just as great as the spread of KLTs. Hovmand offers lifting aids for gently lifting, moving, transporting and tilting your KLTs. Turning and lifting small weights whilst incorrectly stressing the spine can cause personal injury.

CRATE GRIPPER FOR SAFE LIFTING AND MOVING OF LOADS IN INTRALOGISTICS

At Hovmand, we configure your crate lifter to suit your containers. We install the suitable box grippers and, if necessary, supply alternative interchangeable elements. With the right box gripper, the Hovmand crate lifter helps with storage and retrieval from the shelf by using a fork to pick up and move your crates safely. Alternatively, boxes can be pushed onto a platform mounted on the box lifter. You can then place the crate on the lifter, continue retrieval and stack boxes on top of each other. For crates with heavy contents in particular, crate lifters with box grippers spare your employees a lot of effort. Hovmand also offers the forks in a rotatable version, which facilitates the tilting of KLTs.

HEAVY-DUTY CARTON LIFTERS SIMPLIFY WORK IN RETAIL AND LOGISTICS

Food, textiles, household accessories and other everyday essentials are often transported in cartons. In the warehouse or distribution centre, they are picked, sorted and prepared for delivery by the thousand. After arriving at the retail store, the shelves must be filled with new goods. Every carton of coffee, trousers or spoons is handled many times before the goods are sold. This handling generates an enormous number of lifting movements before the goods arrive at the consumer. A carton lifter makes the lifting, transporting, stacking, tilting and turning of cartons easier and more effective.
