A Swiss door manufacturer is a specialist in the manufacture of wooden doors. The raw material is processed using a CNC machining center. Up to now, two employees loaded this machine with heavy wooden beams by hand. To protect the health of staff and make the process more ergonomic and efficient, the company decided to purchase a vacuum tube lifter from Schmalz.

The JumboErgo vacuum tube lifter can handle wooden boards weighing up to 65 kg with ease. The operator can rotate the ergonomic operating element to lift and lower the workpiece intuitively. The tube lifter is equipped with an area gripper that is especially suited to rough surfaces. The gripper can be positioned flexibly on the workpiece because the excellent seal provided by the foam produces a high holding force.

The tube lifter is completed with a responsive Schmalz aluminum crane system.
