Hydraulic Goods Lift for Car Manufacturing Facility

Lödige UK have recently completed the installation of a hydraulic goods lift at a fast moving car manufacturing facility. With increasing demand for their product, the already over capacitated factory needed to find a way to increase productivity without losing valuable space or causing any disruption to their production line.

Lödige designed and built the shaft on the outside of the building. This meant that there was no effect on the footprint of the building and the factory could continue with its day to day work without disruption from building works. The large goods lift was designed with a minimal pit and reduced headroom to make allowance for the size restrictions that were in place. These factors reduced the overall costs for the customer by eliminating the need for planning permission and its associated fees.

Having a bespoke product range means that the Lödige lifts can be customised to meet the customer’s requirements. This particular lift has Bolton Gate doors, galvanised steel walls and a prime coated car floor and ceiling. There are multiple looks and feels to choose from when it comes to the control panels so these can be selected to best suit the buildings design and appearance.

This high quality hydraulic goods lift moves at a speed of 0.15m/s and has two stops. With a load capacity of 5000kg and a 5 meter wide car there will be a very positive impact on production.

Paul Robinson, National Sales Manager of Lödige UK commented:  “We welcome challenging projects like this one that require us to think outside of the box. Our bespoke products and in house design allow us to really push the barriers. Our design, sales team and project managers worked closely on this lift to create something brilliant that we are very proud of”
