VACUUM TUBE LIFTERS operate on the presence of lower than ambient air pressure creating
a powerful holding force against porous and non-
Vacuum lifters differ from vacuum grippers as they grip and lift in one system.
Vacuum systems are designed to insure that more than twice the gripping force is
available versus the payload weight, a minimum 2 to 1 safety factor. The same vacuum
flow is used for gripping as well as lifting. Thus, if the gripping force cannot
be generated, such as on a cardboard box with a tear or hole in the box, the load
cannot be lifted.
In the event of a power failure, a built in vacuum safety valve enables the vacuum lifter to automatically lower the payload to the floor in a safe and controlled manner.
Tube lifters can be used for lifting sacks, boxes, drums, print logs, paving slabs, boards, rolls, and many other products. Some products can be lifted and rotated.
If your application is the lifting of a single product or multiple products at once there are tube lifters that can accommodate your application.
