Sheet panel lifter

Door panels are shifted from one work station to another. The vacuum lifter is installed in an over head system to simplify the transportation. The system is easy to install and adjust to suit the requirements of most industries, an investment that pays for itself quickly. Low head room and more or less no operating space? No problem! Our vacuum lifters can be installed in areas with very little operating space and low head room. VacuEasylift sheet lifter transforms a task of moving 60 kg of panels to a punching machine into a one-man job.

Lifting and tilting panels of wood often involves moving from a horizontal to a vertical position. An angle adapter with a handle is added to the vacuum lifter to turn the suction foot 90 degrees using little manual force. Loss of power does not cause any problems. If there is a power cut, a safety valve shuts down and secure that the load is lowered to the floor gently and under complete control. A total of 5 working stations are covered by this system.

Steel sheets are fed into a film coating machine with the help of a vacuum yoke. The numbers of suction feet depend on the dimensions of the sheet, thin sheets often demand a higher number of suction feet. Vacuum is used to hold and lift the load. The lift tube is rotated through 360° by a swivel.

Our vacuum yokes and suction cups used to lift boards and wood panels come in different designs based on material thickness, weight, size and density of the material. A yoke with two adjustable suction feet is often an effective solution. This also applies to all window and glass lifting. The tool used for lifting framed windows is chosen based on the loads material thickness, surface finish and weight. Our suction feet gaskets are made out of natural rubber and designed to fit every application.
