Flexlift already developed lift tables with belt drive at the beginning of the 80s. However, due to a lack of suitable belts and drives, this development was not further pursued at that time. When a demand for alternatives to spindle drives started to appear around 2000, the design principle was revisited. Today, Flexlift offers belt lift tables in three different designs for different application cases.
The “RFK” series has proven itself as particularly powerful and universally usable. Similary to Flexlift low-profile lift tables, this series is based on a wedge spreading system. The applications cover assembly lift tables (ergonomics) to system lift tables as heavy-duty versions. The belt lift tables have been continuously further developed. In the meantime, they present an optimum with respect to availability, low maintenance effort and quick spare parts replacement.
As one of the results, Flexlift is considered as one of the market leaders in this area. Until now (status of August 2014), Flexlift has sold approx. 9500 belt lift tables worldwide. In addition to automotive manufacturers, aircraft construction, pharmaceutical and chemical industry and the food industry are customers of these lift tables.
