Accessories for Vacuum Lifting Device VacuMaster Vario

Suction Cup Shut-Off

Adapts to changing workpieces

With the suction cup shut-off valve several suction cups can be turned off for handling of cut pieces or pieces with gaps.

Parking Stands

Secure storage of the lifting device

When the lifting device is not in use, the parking stands allow it to be stored securely while protecting the suction cups. This allows the crane to be used for other purposes.


Quick-connect electrical connection

The CEE plug suggests the lifting device to be easily connected to the power supply and then quickly disconnected if necessary (only for VacuMaster Basic).
