Success Story

Handling of sheet metal made easy

Stresses and unevenness in the sheet metal can have a negative effect on further processing. Precision alignment machines from Arku Maschinenbau GmbH compensate these flatness errors and thus improve results in subsequent processes. For some time now, Arku has been using vacuum lifters from Schmalz to load its machines. The vacuum tube lifter JumboErgo 110 now takes care of those tasks that were once performed using magnetic or manual loading. The vacuum lifter also makes it possible to quickly and easily move non-magnetic sheet metal weighing up to 110 kg.

A Suitable Crane System for Your Vacuum Lifter

Schmalz vacuum lifters are supplemented by individual crane systems. The aluminum crane systems and jib cranes have been adapted to the lift capacities of the vacuum lifters.
