Logistical processes are also becoming more and more important for the modern metal construction industry. Loading and unloading a CNC machine tool to bend metal sheets requires that hundreds of sheet metal plates are transported each day. Loading can be done horizontally, but unloading must be performed using a stationary storage cart. In order to make this work easier for the employees and give priority to their health, the company decided to purchase a vacuum lifting device from Schmalz.

The lifting device VacuMaster Comfort is ideally suited to handle this logistical process. Its high-end features make it convenient to use and allow for fast operation. The vacuum lifting device VacuMaster Comfort has a 700-mm-long operator handle with integrated push-button control. This allows the work to be performed ergonomically by one person, while ensuring a safe distance to the metal sheets. The lifting device has an additional pushbutton at the control, which allows swiveling the sheet metal horizontally by 90°. The handling system is combined with an SRA aluminum crane system, providing a huge working area measuring 13,000 mm x 6,000 mm (length x width). The aluminum crane system as well as the lifting device were designed for swiveling loads weighing up to 175 kg.
