Their production of natural cosmetics involves the storage of essential oils in barrels. These barrels are delivered on wooden pallets, but must be transferred to aluminum pallets due to high purity requirements. Since each barrel weighs approximately 200 kg, this process demanded an enormous amount of physical effort on the part of the employees.

The vacuum lifting device VacuMaster Basic can lift one barrel at a time with ease. The electronic warning device of the lifting device provides protection for the employee in the event of a power failure. In such a case, the vacuum reservoir ensures that the barrel is lowered slowly.

In combination with a monorail that is attached to the wall, the lifting device can be used optimally in this area.
