Sheet Metal and Steel Lifting Equipment
Loading sheets into a shear, CNC turret punch, laser, or other fabricating machine inherently requires lifting by an operator. Sheets weighing up to 150 lbs. are often handled by one man with several devices used so that the sheet could be slid onto the machine, resulting in pinched fingers and cut hands. Heavier sheets are usually handled by two men with the aid of an overhead or jib crane.
The Canrack Metal Center Systems Sheet Handler allows one person to lift sheets or plate weighing up to 1000 lbs and safely move them into position with no hand contact to the sheet. Back strain and cut or pinched fingers are eliminated and any employee, independent of size and strength, can easily perform the handling task. Work stations are designed to ergonomically recommended standards.
The Canrack Metal Center Systems Sheet Handler eliminates the need to slide sheets. Especially desirable for anyone using materials with oil films or surface critical material such as aircraft aluminums.
Paper interleaved or vinyl-coated sheets can be handled and movement is easily controlled to give gentle handling from the stack onto the machine bed.
One person lifts sheets to feed shear
Sheets move easily with jib to shear table
With lifting effort removed, any operator can move up to 1000lb sheets to shear table (1000lbs may require two operators)
Most Sheet Handlers by Canrack Metal Center Systems pull double duty for machine feed and for sheet order filling
CNC controlled machines can be fed immediately as picked sheets can be moved into a load position hovering over the sheet grippers while the machine is processing the previous sheet. Increased production is achieved through reduced waiting time during sheet loading and unloading.
