Hydraulic cargo lift with an operator on board. It is intended for installation in a construction shaft. After installation, the shaft of the lift must be secured — close with tight walls everywhere. It is mandatory to secure the levels with landing doors. The start configuration is a flat deck platform with the hold-to-run operation. The highest equipment level is a fully closed cargo cabin with cabin doors and push-to-go operation. It complies with the current EU machinery safety directive.
Legend: 1) Landing doors. 2) Reinforced concrete wall to anchor the guide rails. 3) Light. 4) Platform operation panel 5) Platform with useful sizes width CW and depth CD. 6) Guiderails. 7) Control and power cabinet. 8) Pit or ramp.
The lift must always be secured with landing doors. Models D1 and D2 (Door 1 side hinged or Door 2 side hinges) are industrial lift doors made via a new technology without welding. The locks and the hinges are outside the door for a 180-degree opening. The door complies with ЕN81-20 and EN 81-50. The door lock has a CE mark for safety regarding Lifts Directive 2014/33/EU or 2006/42/EC. The model D1H (Door 1 side hinged Half) is suitable for the installation on the last floor.
The platform has one protection on the side of the guide rails. The rest three sides are free for loading or railing.
The lift's cabin is a fully enclosed steel construction. The cabin is a perfect solution for high and light goods, increasing lift safety and cancelling out the "guillotine effect". Its disadvantage is the necessity of heeding the safety space or so-called "headroom" that is a minimum of 830 mm above the cabin.
With the ramp, the lift can be installed directly on the finished floor. It is not necessary to dig a pit below the finished floor. It is advisable to use an electric pallet truck to load the lift. Despite the small incline of roughly three degrees, manually pushing a load heavier than 500 kg on a ramp is a challenge.
The TC lifts have 1 speed as standard. The lifting up force comes from the pressure from the hydraulic pump via a hydraulic cylinder. The gravity causes the lifting downforce, and it is controlled by an electrical valve with accelerating and decelerating ramp with +- 7 mm accuracy of levelling. With the creeping speed option, the level accuracy can be increased to +- 3 mm. This option is for 500-kg and 1,000-kg lifts. For the lifts of more than 1,000 kg load and passenger lifts, the creeping speed is standard.
The self-supporting column replaces the concrete wall needed to anchor the lift's guide rails.
IP 53 is the standard protection class for the TC industrial lift. The lift power stations have IP 43. If you plan to install the lift outdoor or in an aggressive environment, you need better protection.
