Buckets are used in industry for various processing steps. Whether liquids, granulates or bulk materials: especially during the manufacturing process, a variety of materials are transported in buckets and subsequently filled into other containers. Inexpensively available in different sizes and textures, the bucket offers considerable advantages from storage to movement and decanting.
However, when the buckets need to be transported, this process presents challenges to employees. As convenient as buckets are from a business perspective, they are unwieldy when it comes to lifting and lowering the heavy goods.
Because working with buckets is characterised by different capacities, diameters and weights. The movement, filling and emptying of the buckets is correspondingly difficult.
In addition, buckets are made of different materials. While smaller threads are usually made of plastic, metal is used when a great deal 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 employees. The solution: an ergonomic lifting aid for buckets.
To make moving buckets 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.
