For this week’s Project Spotlight blog, we are going to cover vertical reciprocating conveyors because one will be installed by our crews in Mississippi after the mezzanine is finished!
Vertical Reciprocating Conveyors, also known as VRCs, move equipment from one level to another. They can move efficiently to a mezzanine, rack/shelving storage system with catwalks, or a new/existing upper floor level. In addition, they are classified as a material conveyor, and the operators do not need OSHA forklift training. They can also transfer pallet loads, carts and boxes that may not fit on a forklift.
Other benefits to VRCs include:
- Safe to operate
- Less costly to operate and maintain compared to elevators and forklifts
- Adjusts to your specific load (height, speed requirements)
