The company Andreas Held, specialists in interior construction, office and bank facilities, is located in Donaueschingen. The company is particularly notable for providing custom solutions that are specially tailored to meet their customers’ specific needs.

Until now, Andreas Held was using a mechanical sheet gripper to load the horizontal saw. In order to optimize the production process and avoid damaging the sheets, they decided to purchase a vacuum lifting device from Schmalz.

With the vacuum lifting device VacuMaster Multi, wooden sheets of up to 400 kg in weight can be handled horizontally and placed on a horizontal saw. With its 90° swivel function, the vacuum lifting device is the ideal solution for swiveling sheets that can weigh up to 300 kg, vertically handling them and removing them from upright storage. The swiveling operator handle is a standard feature on the VacuMaster Multi and makes it especially ergonomic for employees to operate. Since the two large suction cups are fully adjustable on the crossbeam, even large, unwieldy sheets can be handled effortlessly. Furthermore, the combination of a powerful vacuum blower with additional centrifugal mass and an electronic warning device ensures safe handling when using this device.
