Maintain conveyor belts ergonomically with Flexlifter from Flexco

Flexco has developed an innovative device for the ergonomic maintenance of conveyor belts. The Flexlifter enables service personnel to hoist the tensioned belt on the system to the required height without physical exertion. The belt lifter can be loaded with up to three tonnes. And because of its particularly lightweight construction, the technician can move it about with ease.

The flexlifter is available in three sizes: “Medium” for belt widths from 900 to 1 500 mm, “Large” for 1 200 to 1 800 mm and “XL” for 1 800 to 2 400 mm. The largest version can accommodate up to 2 700 kg. Being made of anodized aluminium, the belt lifter is particularly lightweight and resistant. It is therefore easy for the user to transport and position on the conveyor belt. The powerful scissor lift platform raises the belt safely to a height of 350 to 400 mm without damaging the belt. If more height is required, the Flexlifter can be fitted with extendable feet. After assembly, these rest securely on the conveyor structure. The personnel can now slide the belt lifter over the conveyor belt and position it at right angles on the system. The Flexlifter can be used on both the top belt and on the return belt.

To raise the belt to the required height, the technician operates the Flexlifter with a manual ratchet or hammer drill. The belt lifter is fitted with a two-rail system in order to handle the high loads safely and stably.
