The Vacuum Lifter for Wood, Sheet Metal, Glass and Stone Sheets

Vacuum lifters for sheets made of various materials including wood, sheet metal, glass and stone are devices in materials handling that are able to lift, move and deposit heavy sheets with the help of a vacuum. The range of Schmalz vacuum lifters is divided into two categories: the vacuum tube lifter Jumbo and the vacuum lifting device VacuMaster:


We will find the right solution for your sheet handling application: Selecting the right vacuum lifter for your application depends on the maximum weight of your workpieces as well as the type of handling and alignment. In the wood industry, vacuum lifters ensure efficient loading of CNC machining centers or panel dividing saws and meet the highest requirements when it comes to swiveling or turning workpieces, for example. When handling steel sheets or metal, CNC laser cutting machines are loaded and unloaded, and fragile windows and heavy glass sheets are effortlessly moved by one person in a way that is protected against breakage. Vacuum lifters also ensure efficient material flow in other sectors. Schmalz is a proven partner when it comes to supplying vacuum lifters and crane systems — from universal devices to customer-specific solutions.
