A vacuum lifter, utilising suction pads, lifts challenging items with a flat or smooth surface. It easily lifts glass and concrete slabs. Vacuum lifting also gets used in lifting pipes, plastic laminates and metal. Providing an ergonomic working environment, it handles plaster boards and tins. No more moving heavy loads of beer kegs and cement bags. Vacuum lifting system takes care of them all.
Worker productivity increases and operator fatigue decreases. Heavy boxes, pails, cement blocks and drums are easily transported from manufacturing facilities to warehouses. Easy to use, anyone trained can use a vacuum lifter safely.
Some Models of Vacuum Lifters
Available in different styles, almost every need matches available models. However, vacuum lifter specialists design, make new ones and modify an existing design.
- Vacuum Tube Lifters Jumbo – often found in picking areas, goods up to 300 kg get tackled efficiently. For machine loading and shipping, they also do many lifting jobs. They contract and extend when lifting and lowering.
- VacuMaster Modular Vacuum Lifters – anything weighing up to 2000 kg gets gripped by the VacuMaster and moved safely with a crane. Operator handles, load beams and suction plates may get customised. The aluminum load beam is also a vacuum reservoir, while the chain hoist lifts or lowers anything.
- Vacuum Turning Table – finished segments get turned up to 180°. Connected to a conveying system, the segments get placed on the vacuum turning table by a vacuum beam after demoulding.
Workstation Cranes’ Basics
Supporting the vacuum lifting equipment, are workstation cranes. Safely and accurately maneuvering light loads, they are for production areas. Their end trucks and trolleys fit and roll inside the rail giving them smooth operation.
Here are some amoung the many options:
- Gantry cranes are mostly used in maintenance operations. The two uprights connected by an I-beam is the bridge for the trolley. Gantry cranes are manually operated or run by power. In a powered gantry crane, the uprights run on a track at floor level. In a lighter duty gantry crane, the uprights are on wheels and are manually positioned and repositioned. You can put up to 5 tons on them and have them sprawled up to 30 feet.
- For spot handling, there’s jib cranes. A single rotating bridge covers a circular area making loads easy to position. Used with an overhead crane for better results, they’re bolted to the floor to avoid tipping over. Free-standing jib cranes offer 360-degree rotation.
- An articulating-arm jib crane’s two-piece arm is for precision in positioning loads.
The perfect solution for sack handling are sack vacuum lifters. Sacks get opened and their contents emptied without losing suction. Production and mixing areas using raw ingredients like food and pharmaceutical industries use this.
Reminders in choosing sack vacuum lifters
- Made from heavy-duty quality materials
- Superior layout and attributes so the lifter stays intact even after lifting heavy loads
- High stamina for the suction pads is a must.
- To verify performance, ask for a pre-supply test.
