Ergonomic lifting of bales in for example the pharmaceutical and automotive industry
One of the activities that go on in a tyre factory is the mixing of rubber compound. This formulation consists of rubber and fillers.
The mixer is a sophisticated piece of heavy equipment whose primary function is to break down and mix rubber bale, fillers, and chemicals with other ingredients. The blocks of rubber are ergonomically, quickly and smoothly moved to the mixer using a VacuEasylift bale lifter. Rubber bales are lifted with two flexible suction cups which adjust to the surface. The rubber bales used to produce tyres are delivered in pieces of approximately 40 kg weight, a very heavy lifting operation if carried out manually.
In the pharmaceutical industry rubber bales are handled with VacuEasylift in stainless steel due to cleanroom requirements.
