Material Lifting Equipment for Handling Boxes: All Types, All Sizes (2022)

Material Lifting Equipment for Handling Boxes: All Types, All Sizes (1)

Boxes - all industries have them. All industries need to handle them.

Material lifting equipment in some shape or other is probably nessesary if the boxes are:

  • are too heavy for personnel to carry and maneuver around by hand
  • come in large numbers
  • require frequent lifting, moving, and handling
  • perhaps come in awkward shapes that make them difficult to handle and carry manually

Material Lifting Equipment for Handling Boxes: All Types, All Sizes (2)If you recognize any of the above challenges, then industrial material handling equipment might be your answer.

So if you're looking for an electric lifter to handle your boxes, we can certainly help you with that.

'Okay', you may say, 'all that's very well, but those issues are not my only problem, I also have physical environmental challenges in terms of constricted working space as well as industrial regulations to pay attention to.'

No problem, we'd be more than happy can help you with that, too. We can adapt our lifters to suit any environment and any industry regulations (e.g. GMP).

'All this is great, but what if I need an electric lifter that needs to be part of my storage systems, can you do that as well?'

Indeed we can. We are an OEM supplier for material handling equipment, too!

In 2Lift, we'll meet and welcome any needs and challenges you may have!

In other words:
- if your material lifting equipment needs are simple and straightforward, we have a wide range of standard solutions for you
- if your lifter needs are special and complex, we can create bespoke solutions and thus help you with that, too

This flexibility in creating solutions (rather than merely offering products) is possible thanks to the modular principles of our design - a concept we call the 2Lift Modular Design.

  • Build an electric lifter in almost whichever dimensions you please
  • Make sure the lifter canlift and handle whatever type of load you desire (not only boxes but also rolls / reels, drums and pallets)
  • Build the lifter fromwhatever material (steel, stainless steels) your industry requires

In this way, the 2Lift Modular Design will embrace and build material lifting equipment perfectly suited your individual needs. (Our material handling lift solutions can lift up to 300 kg at once and lift boxes up to 4 meters.)

And if you don't see what you need in our display below, we willredesign your lifter from scratch.

Lifting all Types of Boxes

We strive to handle even the most awkwardly shaped box needed to be handled in the tightest working space in the most challenging cleanroom environment.

Here at 2Lift our material lifting equipment can lift and handle everything from plastic crates and cardboard cartons to metal containers and fragile packages. We design and manufacture industrial material handling equipment for pretty much:

  • Any shape of box
  • Whichever type of material (wood, cardboard, plastic, metal)
  • Any branch of industry,be that e.g. storage, pharmaceutical, food / beverage or something completely different

Our Lifting Tools for Lifting and Handling Boxes

The main differentiating parameter when it comes to designing material lifting equipment for handling boxes is the choice of lifting tool (also called end-effectors).

Different shapes of boxes and different gripping, docking and handling requirements will often make one type of lifting tool more ideal than another.

At 2Lift we can offer three main types of lifting tools for lifting and handling boxes:

  • Forks (singular or double)
  • Platforms (flat or with rollers)
  • Scissor Clamps

All these lifting tools can be specially adapted and built to suit your needs perfectly.

Gallery of Material Lifting Equipment for Lifting and Handling Boxes

Below you will find some visual examples of how we may solve your lifting needs for handling boxes.

Again, these electric lifters are just examples of what we've built so far, so if you need something tailored your specific needs (maybe you have environmental constriction such as a low door frame, narrow aisles etc.) we will custom build a specially dimensioned material handling lift for you.

Material Lifting Equipment with Forks

Various forms of forks as lifting tools are our most popular solution for lifting boxes that have a top edge. The forks hold the box right under the edge and then the box is lifted from under that edge.

If there is a need for tipping the box, there is the choice of using a double fork.

Electric Lifters with Platforms

A very simple solution for lifting and handling boxes is the use of a platform. This is the standard solution for handling square boxes, typically storage boxes, with no top edges.

The platform can come many different designs:

  • There is the straightforward flat surfaced platform which can used for boxes that aren't too heavy.
  • But to ease the manual pushing of boxes onto and off the platform, we often recommend a platform with rollers:
    • We have platforms with rollers on the front or an all sides of the platform.
    • However, you can also have the whole platform consist of rollers, if you want to roll your box all the way off or on the platform (then technically it isn't a platform as such, but a frame with rollers).

Industrial Material Handling Equipment with Scissor Clamps

If your box has a very special type of geometry that makes it particularly difficult to handle and which is isn't suited for either forks or platforms, we can build a lifter with a scissor clamp that will grip and put careful pressure on your box from two sides.

Another advantage of the scissor clamp is the possibility of tipping the box, if that is an important handling requirement. Then we place a turning unit behind the clamp which enables it to turn sideways.
