Vertical Lift Conveyor Gripper


The Vertical Lift Conveyor – Gripper Elevator (i.e., Lowerator) by Modular Conveyor Express has the advantage to securely elevate or lower products while using very little floor space. This unit firmly and gently grips your product at the same elevation as your in-line conveyor to provide continuous transporting through the elevation change. The grippers then release your product through a seamless discharge while distributing onto your take-away conveyor line.

Vertical lift conveyors are used to transport products between multiple levels with speed and care. It doesn’t matter if loads are packaged or unpackaged, soft or rigid, the “Modular Conveyor Express” Vertical Lift Conveyors deliver reliability and high performance.


Verticle Lifts are available in “C” or “S” Configurations

The “Modular Conveyor Express” Vertical Lift Conveyors are available in “C” or “S” configurations. The “S” configurations are much more space-efficient than an incline conveyor or a spiral conveyor system. It can also be used either upward or downward. Like the “S” configuration, the C configuration can transport in either direction.

"C" or "S" Configurations - Vertical Lift Conveyors

Both “S” and “C” vertical lift conveyors feature low maintenance, long-life, and quiet operation.
