Hylifta Materials Handling Elevator

Transfer bulk goods across production levels.

Hylifta provides a simple, safe and cost effective method of transferring bulk goods or product batches across different production levels


Hylifta is a materials handling elevator from Simpro designed to provide a simple, safe and cost effective method of transferring bulk goods or product batches across production levels.

Based on tried and tested Dumpmaster technology, Hylifta was designed for flexibility from the start. The electronic management system allows access stations to be fitted to the front and/or rear of the lift, at any level up to ten metres. Various models are available with safe working loads of up to 600kg, and car sizes up to 1500mm x 1500mm.

Because the Hylifta can be fitted with wheels and needs no floor pit or other building alterations, installation typically take as little as 60 minutes and does not require a building consent. This minimises production downtime and makes the lift very cost-effective.

Like all Simpro products, Hylifta is designed to be maintenance-free and extremely reliable. It can transform your production workflow, saving valuable time and effort while reducing workplace injuries.


Simpro Hylifta™ features

From design phase to installation the process was made pretty simple by the guys at Simpro. Even a problem with the PLC in the first weeks of use was sorted out over the phone with a few photographs which I thought pretty professional.

The elevator has proved a huge asset to our process.
