Robotunits Lifters combine our proven Linear Motion Units with our Conveyors. Height differences in production and warehousing environments can easily be overcome by utilising this clever technology. Robotunits Lifters are built by combining Robotunits aluminium extrusion, fastening as well as conveyor and linear motion technology. Due to this fact we can produce customer specified Lifters very quickly saving valuable time and therefore saving bottom line dollars for our customers.
Lifters can be built with single or double guiderails depending on the load that has to be lifted.
Advantages of Robotunits Lifters
- high savings through utilisation of the Robotunits Modular Automation System
- completely build to individual customer needs
- different conveyor units available depending on goods to be lifted
- express delivery possible within 1 working week
- safety enclosure available if needed
Robotunits Lifters are Custom Made
Choose height, width, carriage size and conveyor options depending on your exact needs.Lifters can be built to almost any requirements in vertical or angled configuration. Easily transferring goods to different height and utilisation of the available warehouse height are just two of the benefits of using Robotunits Lifters. The Units integrate with the complete Modular Automation System which results in substancial cost and time savings. Safety enclosures can be added depending on your needs and site specifications also.
Robotunits Australia has just released the latest product catalogue. Version 13 is available right now featuring the latest product information of the Robotunits Modular Automation System. The newly designed catalogue is now even more userfriendly. Many quick index references and icons guide you to your desired products in seconds.
All technical information is now split into six chapters (Conveyor Technology, Linear Motion Units, Aluminum Profiles, Connection Technology, Multifunctional Accessories and Safety Fencing). Each article has a dedicated page in the new Catalogue making it very easy to read. Additional information like relevant standards, service information and installation guidelines make the new Robotunits catalogue an important directory for the daily use of every design engineer.

Proven Concept: Linear Motion Systems from Robotunits!
High Quality, easy configuration, quick & seamless integration.
Designed around the Robotunits extrusion and fastening technology, this flexible linear motion system offers you an unmatched combination of versatility, stability and efficiency.
This customer application required a robust pick & place positioning system to lift, turn and relocate gear covers onto a Robotunits conveyor to transport the parts to the following station. The entire X-Y-Z system could be designed and built with standard components which reduced lead time and added to the bottom line of the project.
Modular axis design (X-Y-Z combinations)
Complete compatibility with Robotunits conveyors and extrusion technology due to standardized 14mm t-slot design
Playfree linear motion bearings with high positioning accuracy
(+/- 0.2 mm)
High load capacity due to hardened, tempered steel guide rails
Manufacturing Companies trying to increase their productivity and stay competitive in the marketplace have many options available to do so. In almost all circumstances it comes down to either lowering costs for raw materials and labor used to produce a product or to increase the workflow which is the total time it takes to manufacture a product. This workflow time must also consider the material flow from goods inwards to dispatch. This is an area in which belt conveyors can make a significant difference in productivity at a low level of investment. If it can be identified that staff constantly run back and forth to retrieve certain goods then a reduction in labor costs is easily achievable in implementing a belt conveyor and run the material workflow more efficiently and thus increase productivity. Often, a strategically placed belt conveyor can have a huge impact on workflow efficiency and most likely the investment costs will be very low.
It is very important to customize these conveyors to exactly match the workflow times needed in any given manufacturing situation. An “off the shelf” conveyor system will most likely cause more problems rather than increasing efficiency. It is imperative that the conveyor system is built to take all variables into consideration. Some of those might be peak and off peak cycle times, size and weight of products to be transported, material of goods or if the system needs to be able to run in accumulation or start/stop mode.
Another very important key aspect to consider is to make sure that an even workflow is achieved throughout the entire process. If one process is running faster then another then bottlenecks are created which diminish the efficiency and mostly achieve nothing else but to move a problem from one area within the manufacturing facility to another. This is where the entire workflow process has to be taken into consideration, from goods inwards through manufacturing to dispatch. This seems quite simple but when looking closely can become quite complex. There are companies that are specialized in working out optimized workflows but for small to medium sized companies a conveyor manufacturer should have a good understanding of what is required and should be able to give some good common sense advice.
Looking at all these variables should make it very clear that belt conveyor systems must be custom designed and built to match the manufacturing environment. Saving a few investment dollars at this stage may turn out to be an expensive mistake.
