VRC Material LiftsWildeck Vertical Reciprocating Conveyors (VRCs) are a cost-effective, safe, and easy way to move materials from one elevation to another. They are ideally suited for the safe and efficient movement of materials to a mezzanine, rack storage system with catwalks, or any new or existing upper floor level.

Safety and Efficiency Matter

Wildeck VRCs are safer than using a forklift truck or manpower to move materials between levels and are easier and less costly to operate and maintain than elevators or forklift trucks. VRCs are classified as a material conveyor and operators do not require OSHA forklift training.

Whatever the Load or Need

Whatever the load may be, moving materials just gets easier with a reliable and easy-to-install Wildeck VRC. They can safely transfer pallet loads, as well as carts and boxes that many not fit on a forklift.

Whether you need the simplicity of a hydraulic VRC, or the faster, continuous operation of a mechanical unit; Wildeck’s rugged and reliable VRCs can be configured to meet your specific load, height, and speed requirements.

Wildeck’s staff of experienced mechanical and electrical engineers can customize a VRC for virtually any lifting application or environment.

Made in the USA

Wildeck VRCs are manufactured in the USA and meet ANSI / ASME B20.1 safety standards for conveyors and applicable MHIA guidelines. VRCs are for safe transport of materials only. Riders are not permitted.
