Vacuum Lifters for Manual Workflows

Vacuum Lifters for Manual Workflows

Because the rough wooden boards, cut pieces, workpieces, assemblies and furniture bodies 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.

Schmalz also offers convenient workshop equipment especially for woodworking and wood processing companies, including vacuum workbenches, vacuum work stands, vacuum turning benches, transport trolleys and sheet transport trolleys.
