NERAK Luggage Continuous Vertical Conveyors are available as Z-Type models which can convey up to 50 items per min. The actual possible capacity depends on the size of the item conveyed. Item loads can range from under 1lb to over 200lbs!
The conveyors can be used for upward direction, downward direction and combined upward and downward direction. The Vertical Lifts can be as high as 100 feet.
The small footprint compared to incline conveyors or spiral type conveyors save valuable floor space.

NERAK Luggage Continuous Vertical Conveyors are specially designed and tested for high demanding luggage operations. Our special platform design and internal cladding ensures flawless transfer of conveyed luggage. It prevents catching of loose luggage items such as handles, strings and alike and guarantees that no luggage is lost during transport.
Platforms for luggage are specially designed with no gaps to ensure a tangle free transport of every piece of luggage. All platforms ensure a smooth, stable and gentle transport of items. The platforms are attached on each corner to Rubber Chains. The platforms flex in one direction only to be able to bring the platform back in a space saving way and on the other hand to make a stiff flat surface to carry the product.
NERAK Rubber Chains with enclosed high-tensile steel cable are the driving and transporting members without wear points requiring lubrication or maintenance. Operation is silent and clean. Different Rubber compounds are available to provide the right chain for your conveying environment. Click here for more information on NERAK Rubber Chains.
NERAK Vertical Conveyors have lower Power requirements, and less needs for servicing and maintenance compared to conventional conveying systems.
Feeding the conveyed material onto the platform is a feed conveyor located in front of the Continuous Vertical Conveyors. The feed conveyor starts and stops automatically to feed the platforms on the Vertical Lift. Belt Conveyors are the usual choice for luggage they can be supplied by NERAK or the Customer. A cascading (offset height) transfer ensures that the luggage transfers damage free.
Discharging the NERAK Continuous Vertical Conveyor is very simple. The platform transfers without stopping onto any running conveyor for continued transport. A cascading (offset height) transfer ensures that the luggage transfers damage free.
