Dosing, weighing, mixing and more features: a flexible lifting aid

In the field of dosing, weighing and packaging, there are many applications for handling equipment. They support ergonomic work and relieve the employee. Handling devices allow the employee to perform tasks without having to call colleagues and avoid waiting times for forklifts, cranes or other means of transport.

Best Handling Technology recommends the use of the ezzLIFTmaster mobile lifting aid when objects need to be lifted repeatedly and transported over a limited distance from or to different locations.


The lifting aid ezzLIFTmaster offers easy handling and an excellent maneuverability

Advantages of the ezzLIFTmaster include easy handling, safe pick-up and placement of the goods, and very good maneuverability. The lifting aid can be used universally and is battery-powered. With its versatile standardized accessories and customized solutions, it offers attractive support for many operations involving lifting and moving. Even in confined spaces, the ezzLIFTmaster is easy to move thanks to its four swivel casters. The quick-change coupling makes it possible to switch quickly to different applications, for example from mold changing to packaging film handling.


The lifting trolley is able to perform a wide range of handling tasks: up/down, gripping/releasing, swiveling, tilting, free programming of different positions and customer-specific pick-up and handling functions.


Dosing

When it comes to moving, transferring or decanting large quantities of substances and materials, for example from buckets and drums into mixing containers, the ezzLIFTmaster is ideally suited. When decanting, the heavy containers are often held by hand. This is not an ergonomic working posture and is also dangerous, as there is always the risk of dropping the container in the process.


The source container must often be positioned above the target container with the batch in order to dose the different substances. Holding this is difficult and unwieldy. The ezzLIFTmaster lifting aid supports the operator in picking up, moving and emptying the containers. It also allows operators to move back and forth between containers and adjust the height during transfer.


Rotating the container to empty the contents is done manually via a crank or electrically at the touch of a button. A wide variety of container shapes can be handled: Barrels, cartons, buckets, sacks and much more. A wide selection of different grippers enables different containers to be clamped so that everything can be held and emptied safely. Cartons, barrels and buckets can be clamped and rotated as required. Alternatively, containers can be vacuum lifted, rotated and emptied. Vacuum lifters are also suitable for handling bags.

With the emptying function of the ezzLIFTmaster to the front or to the side, pouring allows easy and accurate dosing. The flowability depends on the substances, which are powdery or liquid. In addition, if the container is clamped, the operator can use a ladle to assist the dispensing process. Here, the operator gets relief by holding the container, which enables ergonomic work.


Weighing

A special tool of the ezzLIFTmaster is an integrated scale. The advantage here is that weighing can also be carried out directly on the lifting aid. There is a weighing cell on the base frame of the lifting aid, on which a weighing platform sits. The incoming goods can also be verified, weighed and stored here by the weighing cell in conjunction with a data logger or an online connection.

The display is usually located on the column of the mobile lifting aid. However, the display can be placed according to customer requirements. For example, it can also be attached to a flexible arm so that it can be rotated individually. Depending on the design, the scale can weigh a maximum weight of up to 500 kg. This means that the mass can be weighed directly during decanting and dosing without having to carry out another intermediate step.

Mixing

For small batches, the ezzLIFTmaster can also be used as a continuous mixing device.


The advantage here is that the substances can be dosed and then mixed directly without having to change the unit. Here, a container can be picked up, lifted, mixed and set down with the lifting aid. The container can be an IBC, for example, which is docked directly onto the filler after mixing. The positions are then approached by pressing a button. This can also be done during travel. Mixing operation is also performed by pressing a key. By means of a special control system, the positions of the pick-up and set-down points as well as mixing (duration, reversal of direction, ...) can be preset.

The ezzLIFTmaster is also very flexible with regard to many load suspension devices, such as a gripper which renders continuous mixing.

Packing

When the filling process is finished, the containers still have to be moved and made ready for transport. Handling equipment is also available for this purpose, because packing the mixtures also includes safe handling of the containers from the filler or handling from the packing machine onto the pallet. For this, Best Handling Technology recommends the vacuum lifter ezzFAST. For example, for picking up the standing bags at the filler with vacuum, swiveling them into the horizontal position and placing them horizontally on the pallet. Barrels and pails are best vacuum lifted from the side or, if no lid can come off and the geometry of the filler permits, also from the top. Cartons can also be suctioned and moved from above. For pallets stacked particularly high, there are long and even telescopic handles.
