vertical lifting device

  • This is a device that provides straight up/down vertical travel in the Z axis only.
  • Normally these devices are mounted overhead. Some have side to side or pendulum motion that is associated with Hoists, Balancers, or Vacuum Tube Lifters. Some are vertically rigid and have no side to side unless they are mounted on a moving support structure (Articulated Jib, mono-rail crane, or bridge crane).
  • Some of these devices are designed to support off-center loading.
