For handling large, flat and typically non-porous workpieces, for example:
- Loading and unloading CNC laser cutting machines with metal plates
- Loading and unloading CNC machining centers with wooden boards or plastic sheets
- Handling and positioning glass panels and windows during production, framing and installation
- Efficient, non-damaging handling of heavy loads
- To work ergonomically and protect operator health
- Excellent work safety and process reliability thanks to vacuum reservoir and audible warning device
- Long service life due to a robust mixture of steel, aluminum and high-strength plastic
- Low operating costs thanks to controlled vacuum generator with energy saving (Comfort version)
Design and Function
The vacuum lifting device VacuMaster has a modular design. Various basic modules, operator handles, load beams and suction plates allow you to customize the configuration. The necessary suction force is generated by the vacuum generator and transferred to the workpiece via the suction plates. For safety purposes, the aluminum load beam also serves as a vacuum reservoir. A chain hoist is required for lifting or lowering motion, which Schmalz offers along with a compatible crane system.
