Vertical conveyor for boxes
What solution should be used if you need to lift up to 2000 boxes per hour to a height up to 15 meters?
Vertical conveyors for boxes are used to lower or elevate commodities in any type of containers between the platform and mezzanine levels and can also be used as a vertical sorter.
Vertical conveyor by KAPELOU
High-speed vertical KAPELOU conveyor — the best investment to boost your warehouse efficiency
Do you have a mezzanine floor in your warehouse facility that is used to store tens of thousands of SKUs (i.e. stock keeping units)? Do you need to organize sorting of goods between different levels, or to lower goods for processing and lift them for storing? We can offer an effective solution, which will also eliminate the need for routine operations and hard physical labour.
KAPELOU has launched in-house production of automated vertical conveyors for boxes (box elevators) to gain control over the entire production process and manufacturing time of the equipment, as well as to ensure superior quality of the conveying systems.
The box elevator can handle a wide variety of packages: boxes, cartons, trays, bags, cans.
The box elevator gently transports goods in an upright position. Automatic controls ensure accurate positioning of the carriage, smooth loading and unloading of boxes, which completely secures the goods against any damage or deformation.
Compact, low-noise and reliable conveyor for transporting items with a weight up to 50 kg between platform levels.
Modular design enables integration into the warehouse environment and ensures high throughput capacity.
The KAPELOU vertical conveyor is assembled just like a children’s construction set, so it can be installed in any premise without dismantling the roof and can be easily adapted to the workspace. This way installation of the vertical conveyor takes minimum time, and delivery of modules involves the lowest possible shipping costs.
Robust warehouse elevator for transporting items between platform levels. Suitable for lifting and lowering items with a weight up to 50 kg.
Goods to be transported are loaded to and unloaded from the elevator only through a motor-driven roller table for boxes.
Component parts from reliable manufacturers. We carefully select suppliers of devices and components for our systems. Use of component parts from the most reputable equipment manufacturers like SICK, SIEMENS, SEW, Optibelt, Lovato Electric, Hager, Wago guarantees serviceability, durability and trouble-free operation of the elevators.
The conveyors are manufactured using modern equipment. All process operations are performed by qualified professionals on DMG MORI and TRUMPF CNC machines, which guarantees precise machining of parts with an accuracy up to 0.01 mm, high machining efficiency and adherence to the scheduled time of manufacture.
Complete solution from a single provider. All stages of the automation systems development and construction, including consulting, production of conveyor equipment, development of custom software, installation of automated systems and integration with WMS, commissioning and service maintenance are concentrated within a single provider — KAPELOU.
More than 8 years of experience in projects of different complexity levels. The automated conveyor equipment is produced using advanced manufacturing techniques and taking into account our practical experience. We calculate loads, perform in-depth study for each assembly unit of the system and clearly understand solutions to be applied in order to secure the desired result for your warehouse.
Service maintenance. We provide customer support after commissioning of the system. Based on the maintenance servicing contract, incident response and maintenance team is assigned to each facility, which ensures prompt handling of all technical issues.

Why you need to set up a conveyor in a warehouse?
In warehouses and logistics centers, where multi-level storage systems are installed, there is a constant need to move cartons and boxes between floors. Popular and versatile forklifts and stackers are not always able to cope with the task and provide rise and fall between levels. A freight elevator for the warehouse will come to the aid. The mechanism can move up to 2000 boxes per hour, is easy to maintain and can replace other equipment in the warehouse. KAPELOU offers solutions with a high productivity for warehouses, taking into account their planning and placement of racks.
Installation of the vertical elevator solves several problems at once:
- provides fast movement of goods between levels of a warehouse mezzanine. In large complexes, you can set up several mechanisms to increase efficiency;
- reduces the workload of staff. Employees do not have to carry boxes of goods, risking dropping them on the stairs, or stacking them on pallets to use a conventional lift;
- speeds up the process of sorting goods intended for storage or shipment;
- works with all types of containers – from cans to boxes and corrugated boxes.
The vertical conveyor easily adapts to the working space and is quickly installed. You do not have to dismantle the mezzanine or racks before installation.
The freight elevator for a warehouse of our production is completely automated. This allows the equipment to accurately transport the cargo, without sudden jerks, to prevent damage to the container and the product itself.
