Factors to consider before designing a Hydraulic Goods Lift

Designing a hydraulic goods elevator requires several considerations. Here is a synopsis of the process:

  1. The most important aspect is to determine the load capacity and lifting height. You need to determine the weight of the heaviest item that you intend to lift, along with also analyse the height it needs to be lifted to. This information will give you load carrying capacity and stroke length of the lift.
  2. Choose the type of lift: There are various types of lifts available in the market like hydraulic lifts, telescopic lifts, wall-mounted lifts and so on. Each type of lift has its pros and cons. The best type of lift can be determined on basis of the specific requirement of the project.
  3. The power source: Hydraulic lifts can be powered by either an electric motor or a gasoline engine. Electric motors are energy efficient and guarantee fewer emissions. But it will not be suitable for places with no access to electricity or face power cuts. Gasoline engines are portable but they have higher emissions and require higher maintenance.
  4. Lifting Platform: The platform is the surface where goods are placed to lift and lower. It has to be large enough to accommodate the largest items that will be lifted. It should be made of durable material to sustain load-carrying capacity.
  5. Control system: The control system is used to control the movement of lift. This includes lifting and lowering the platform, ensuring the safety of load and workplace. Mechanical, pneumatic, and electronic are the options one has with control systems.
  6. Determine Hydraulic Power requirement: The type and size of hydraulic pump depends on the lifting height, load carrying capacity and few other factors. The type of control valve to use is also an important aspect.
  7. Safety features: Safety features like emergency stop, overload warning, and interlock systems are a few features to be incorporated to ensure the safety of the load and operator.
  8. Test: Before putting the lift to function, it should be thoroughly tested to ensure that it is safe to use and meets performance standards. At Aakash Engineers we include load test, function test , in-house engineer inspections, and third party inspections to verify compliance with relevant safety standards.

This is a general overview of the goods elevator. Design is correlated to the exact requirements of the client and safety standards followed in the region where you are operating.

We believe in supplying quality products at reasonable prices.

Installation Process for Hydraulic Goods Lift:

  • Site Preparation: The most vital step is to examine and prepare site where lift has to be installed. This may include excavation for the pit, construction of the lift shaft and preparation of the machine room, if required.
  • Placement & Delivery: Once the site is ready, the lift will be delivered and placed at the designated area. Later the lift will be assembled by a team of engineers.
  • Plumbing/Electrical connections: At this stage, the lift will be connected to electrical and plumbing systems, it is vital to connect the lift to the building’s water and drainage system.
  • Testing & Commissioning: After the lift is installed and connected to all mandatory systems, it is tested thoroughly to ensure that it is functioning okay. The lift will then be inspected by qualified engineers to ensure that it meets all safety requirements.
  • Training: Once the lift is functional, the user team should be trained on how to properly use and maintain the lift.

  • The main advantage of a wall–mounted stacker lift is that it takes up minimum floor space compared to other material handling equipment like freestanding stacker lifts or scissor lifts. This is possible because this lift is mounted on the wall instead of being pitted on the floor. It is a popular choice for warehouses and factories that need to move goods around between different levels of the building but has limited floor space.Moreover, the wall-mounted stacker goods elevator is easy to install and customize. They can be customized with various platform sizes and load-carrying capacities to suit the specific requirement of a particular warehouse or factory. They can also be equipped with safety features like alarms, braking systems, and stop buttons to ensure workers’ safety.Such goods elevator are suitable for different type of buildings, such as distribution centers, factories, and warehouses. They are also suitable for retail stores with multiple-level buildings. It has to be noted that this kind of lift requires proper training for employees and has to be used and maintained as per the user guide/manual. Regular maintenance ensures the longevity and security of the lift.To summarize, wall-mounted stacker goods lift are space-saving and efficient solution for vertical lifting and lowering of goods in industrial or warehouse premises. If used and maintained properly, they can greatly increase productivity and reduce injury at the workplace.

Difference between Hydraulic Goods Elevator and Wall-Mounted Stacker Goods Elevator

  • A hydraulic lift uses fluid power to lift and lower the platform. It has a cylinder filled with oil. The oil in the cylinder is forced to cause the piston to move upward, lifting the platform along with it.The platform is attached to the piston. The platform moves vertically as the oil is forced in and out of the cylinder. Additionally, the lift has a control system that enables the operator to control the movement of the platform and stop it at different levels.A wall–mounted goods lift is generally smaller in size and does not require a pit or room for installation. It is mounted on the wall. It uses a rack and pinion system to move the platform. The platform is attached to a carriage, which is further connected to a pinion gear. Once the pinion gear rotates, it moves the carriage along with a rack, lifting or lowering the platform.They are best used at premises where space is a constraint. It makes for efficient equipment at retail stores, warehouses, and other commercial buildings. They can also be used at multi-level buildings, to move groceries from the ground floor to higher floors.Hydraulic Goods Elevators generally have a higher weight-bearing capacity compared to wall-mounted lift.The hydraulic lifts use cylinders and can take the higher load while the structure of wall-mounted stacker lifts is generally made to lift light loads.
  • FAQs
  • What are Hydraulic Goods lifts?
    A hydraulic goods elevator is a type of material handling equipment is used to raise and lower a platform with the help of a hydraulic cylinder inbuilt in it. It helps to transfer goods between different levels of a building or facility.
  • How does a hydraulic Goods Elevator work?
    Hydraulic goods elevators use a hydraulic system to lift and lower the platform/cage used for the movement of cargo. The lift comprises of a cylinder, when the hydraulic fluid flows into the cylinder, it pushes against a piston causing the lift to move. The hydraulic fluid here is usually oil, the same is pumped into the cylinder using an electric motor. Further, the motor is controlled by a switch, that allows the operator to control the movement of the lift with ease.
