Vacuum Lifters and Crane Systems for Manual Processes

Vacuum lifters can help achieve ergonomic and efficient processes. The vacuum lifter relieves the user of the weight of the workpiece, which helps prevent injuries due to the continual lifting and moving of heavy loads. Our highlights at this year's trade show include:


Further product highlights


  • Workpieces up to 50 kg
  • One-hand operation for rapid movement processes


  • Workpieces up to 300 kg
  • Tube lifter JumboErgo for the dynamic handling of bulky workpieces.

Crane Systems and Jib Cranes

  • Aluminum crane systems and jib cranes for indoors
  • Optimally adjustable to the nominal lift capacity of the vacuum lifters
  • Outstanding low-friction operation and low moving mass

JumboSprint EX

  • Compact workpieces up to 250 kg
  • Rotating operator handle for precise operation
  • For use in areas where there is a risk of explosion

Vacuum Technology for Automation

Schmalz offers a wide range of vacuum components for an even wider range of industries. From suction cups to mounting equipment to vacuum generation, customers can obtain all components needed for a vacuum system from a single source. Our product spectrum for the packaging industry include:
