Vertical transport equipment is a group of conveyors used for vertical load movement within a given logistic group.
Vertical transport equipments include elevators with roll or chain conveyors raised on them. This equipment allows load movement between two or more transport line levels, e.g. when it is impossible to lead a transport line on the lower level and it is necessary to avoid a zone indicated by a transport line routed at proper elevation.
The vertical transport equipment group are also hydraulic lifting devices being separate devices or working in a transport line to change the working height and adjust it to the given line.
