Design and Function

The vacuum lifting device VacuMaster has a modular design. Various basic modules, operator handles, load beams and suction plates allow you to customize the configuration. The necessary suction force is generated by the vacuum generator and transferred to the workpiece via the suction plates. For safety purposes, the aluminum load beam also serves as a vacuum reservoir. A chain hoist is required for lifting or lowering motion, which Schmalz offers along with a compatible crane system.
