Custom Vertical Lifts
PFlow Industries has the engineering capabilities, experience and technical know-how to solve a myriad of vertical lifting problems. We have designed custom vertical lifts to move materials that weigh 10 lbs to over 100,000 lbs, with carriages from 30” x 30” to 30’ x 30', vertical heights from 4’ to over 200’. We have built large load work platforms, over and under equipment for assembly lines, hopper transfer systems and more. PFlow offers complete single-source responsibility for system design, installation and total support for all components including conveyors, VRCs, and programmable controls. If you are faced with a difficult or unusual vertical lifting application, call PFlow. Whatever the size, speed and vertical height your application demands – we’ll help you develop the best custom vertical lift solution.
