In order to a comply with the health and work regulations of the American parent group, the workpieces in a logistic centre are separated into two weight classes (10 kg or less, over 10 kg) prior to order picking. Workpieces that weigh more than 10 kg may only be lifted using a lifting aid. The company decided to purchase a tube lifter from Schmalz.

The vacuum tube lifter JumboFlex is used to lift the heavy workpieces in the order picking area. Here, the tube lifter lifts loads weighing 10 to 25 kg and allows for quick, efficient handling. The tube lifter conforms to the latest ergonomic standards. Its ergonomic, single-handed operation allows the work to be performed without endangering the employees’ health. The quick-change adapter is integrated as a standard component in the JumboFlex vacuum tube lifter and allows all grippers to be changed in seconds, without the need for tools. This makes it possible to use a sack gripper for sacks and a double suction cup for cardboard boxes. The lifting system is rounded off with an SRA aluminum crane system, which ensures flexibility within the working area.
