Material lifts and material handling lifts come in many shapes and sizes.
For some it is distinguished by low capacity moveable lifts that improve the process of storing, controlling, moving, and protecting various goods, materials, and products in an ergonomically and efficient manner. It does so by lifting the material to the correct height or level, whilst being mobile, so it can be moved around for the next task. As such they help facilitate intralogistics in a safe, but also less static way, as fixed installations such as cranes are not needed.
Other times material lifts and material handling lifts are characterized by elevator type solutions or mast lifts that are used to transport and/or handle material between levels. These can typically handle up to several tons, whereas the mobile versions often work in the range of 40-250 kg. These lifts are not mobile but tend to have a much higher vertical travel.
