Customized Tail Lift for a logistics Company

Customized Tail Lift Nandan

The Challanges

Nandan GSE was approached by a leading Logistics company to manufacture a tail lift with the proviso that over all weight was less & tail lift would go above the body of the truck.

Client: Casby Logistics

Location: Mumbai

Product Class: Tail Lift

Type: Customized and reusable

The Solution

NGSE discussed with the Client  the exact need, visited the warehouse to understand the same from the end User before the solution was arrived at. The lift was designed with a rear cantilever platform  placed  inside the body so that the door could be closed and locked if required .  Lifting up and down  was achieved using a vertically placed cylinder and rope mechanism instead of the under slung mechanism used  in the conventional tail lifts, there by reducing the overall weight and the recurring damage while travelling on the road. The change in design also enabled the platform to be lifted approx 300 mm above the body there by allowing a slope to be created for smooth passage of trollies and pallets while loading from the dock to the truck in the warehouses.

Specifications

  • Capacity: 500 kgs.
  • Travelling Height: From ground to 1300mm -1600mm
  • Platform Dimensions: 1300mm by 2000mm.
