Vacuum Lifters for Manual Workflows

Vacuum Lifters for Manual Workflows

Vacuum lifters allow simple, fast and safe manual transportation of metal and metal sheets. Because the workpieces can have a wide variety of shapes, weights and properties, Schmalz offers two series of vacuum lifters: vacuum tube lifters Jumbo and vacuum lifting devices VacuMaster. A large selection of different suction cups is available for both series. Specially adapted crane systems and jib cranes supplement the vacuum lifters.

The manual vacuum lifters for the metal and metal sheet industry support ergonomic handling of heavy, unwieldy workpieces. They can grip even non-magnetizable types of steel. The vacuum lifters allow the workpieces to be swiveled horizontally by 90° or rotated 180°.
