Whether liquids, granulates or bulk goods: drums in different sizes are used in many industries in various processing steps. Especially during the manufacturing process, a variety of materials are transported in drums and then filled into other containers. Inexpensively available in a variety of sizes and textures, the drum offers significant advantages from storage to movement and decanting.
As different as the contents may be, the barrels have one thing in common: the heavy weight.
The heavy lifting goods pose challenges for employees. Because working with barrels is characterised by different capacities, diameters and weights. In addition, drums are made of different materials. While smaller threads are usually made of plastic, metal is used when a lot of stability is required. However, this flexibility does not only offer advantages, because the combination of unwieldy lifting material and heavy weight can cause dangerous health hazards for the employees. The solution: an ergonomic lifting aid for drums.
To make lifting barrels easier and relieve employees, we at Timmer have developed ergonomic hose lifters. The lifting aids grip, lower, turn and lift the buckets using vacuum lifting technology. The special feature of the systems: individual parts can be exchanged as required, so that you can adapt the hose lifter to your lifting goods and your requirements. In this way, we offer maximum flexibility and develop the optimum hose lifter for your lifting goods together with you.
