RK Rose + Krieger will showcase its Multilift II range of electric lifting columns for industrial applications on stand B215 at AUSPACK, including the Multilift II Clean for clean rooms.

The Multilift II Clean was developed specifically for clean-room applications in food, beverage, and pharmaceutical, and features an anodised aluminium profile surface and fully integrated technology. Accessories such as a screen, CPU bracket, or system reinforcements can be easily attached thanks to assembly slots on each side of the column.

Particle emissions tests by the Fraunhofer Institute for Manufacturing Engineering and Automation IPA have certified the Multilift II Clean for use in clean rooms up to a globally recognised class four.

Aside from the Multilift II Clean, the range also includes the three-stage Multilift II Telescopic; the Multilift II Impact with integrated damping technology; the Multilift II Safety, designed for overhead applications; and the Multilift II ESD, which can discharge voltages via the column.

Bespoke solutions are also available.
