Roller Conveyor Type [Exclusive Use for Pallet]OMNI LIFTER

Summary and Features


Corresponding Transports

  • Pallets
  • Carts
  • Rolled Paper
  • Forklifts

Roller conveyor type, vertical conveyor for pallets.

A mechanical facility

Omni Lifter is recognized by Japan’s Ministry of Land, Infrastructure, and Transport and Ministry of Health & Human Welfare as non-elevator mechanical equipment, and also as Japan’s the first vertical pallet transporter.

Eligible for self-inspection

Since the Omni Lifter is classified as non-elevator mechanical equipment, it is eligible for quarterly self-inspections only instead of costly monthly elevator inspections, which helps reduce running costs.

Smooth acceleration and deceleration

Inverter control smoothes acceleration and deceleration to help mitigate cargo fall worries.

Independent tower frame

Specially designed independent frame offers excellent durability and is easy to install in both new and existing facilities.

Safety first

Safety features based on legal safety regulations offer operators reassurances of safety.

Proven to withstand even major earthquakes

No construction permit required

Unlike elevators, installation of the OMNI LIFTER does not require application for a construction permit.

First in Japan

At the 56th Lift Equipment Performance Standards Committee in April 1975, and by the Labor Standards Inspection Office Manager’s answer issued in April 1976, it was determined that the Omni Lifter is not subject to laws governing elevators, but instead falls under the designation “plant equipment.”

Disaster Prevention (Smokeproof Shutter)

If required for the fire retarding division, smokeproof shutters that operate in synchronization with the smoke detector system are installed according to the examples of construction recognized by the Building Standard Law.

Main Devices

2. Inspection device for
figure of products

By the inspection sensor located on the conveyor, the lifter can detect an over dimension of height and width of products on the pallet, and then the automatic operation will be stopped.
