ROEMHELD’s assembly and handling solutions bring increased operator safety and ergonomics to a wide range of industries including automotive, aerospace, medical, plastics, rubber, food, and packaging. Our lifting columns can be combined in numerous ways to provide height adjustment and handling of light to heavy loads in assembly applications. The lifting columns can be combined with titling modules that provide horizontal and vertical rotating, tilting, and lifting of workpieces with mechanical, hydromechanical, or electric operation. Each lifting column can be used individually since they are independent functional units, or several can be combined together to create a multi-functional unit.
The ROEMHELD’s Linear Actuators are available in two power sources; electric or hydraulic and are designed to provide maximum lifting force and linear motion for a wide range of industries. They are suitable for use in height adjustment applications such as nursing beds, patient transporters, lifting tables & more.

ROEMHELD offers a variety of industrial lifting columns suitable for assembly lines, from basic models with a maximum force capacity of 225-lbs to high-strength loading capacity models capable of 1,350-lb. maximum lifting force. They provide safe and precise handling with all lifting columns featuring foot-pedal operations which gives high flexibility to the customer to integrate their own constructions and vises into the system. In addition, you have a choice between manual and powered designs. You can start with easy assistance and develop up to semi-automatic systems. We target manual assembly of any goods, with weights from 20 to 300 lb (10 to 150 kg), even up to 1,300 lb (600 kg) for some applications. The biggest benefits come from the flexibility to combine the various systems in ways that meet the user’s varying needs.
Why is ergonomics important in an assembly line?
Ergonomics in an assembly line is important to reduce injury, create higher productivity, and boost morale in the workplace. Not all injuries are instant, some happen over time the resulting in repetitive motion disorder. To reduce the risk of this disorder you can implement ROEMHELD’s assembly systems and make your assembly line ergonomic. With our systems you can expect:
Lifitng column Systems for height-adjustable working tables
Lifting columns for rotating, tilting, and swiveling workpieces for adjusting the optimal workpiece position
Clamping modules and fixture mounting devices for quick and safe fixturing of a workpiece
Cart Modules for when your modular units need to be mobile.
