Application Example

The vacuum lifter JumboErgo facilitates stone picking applications.

Within the production, the stone deposit of the automated kiln cars must be repaired and replaced from time to time. These bricks, weighing up to 50 kg, had to be moved by hand. The purchase of the vacuum lifter JumboErgo improved the working conditions of the employees.

In combination with an aluminum crane system, the JumboErgo tube lifter offers the right solution for picking up bricks horizontally from the kiln car and replacing them with new bricks. Only one person is needed to move the bricks. The tube lifter JumboErgo is equipped with a quadruple suction pad that can be flexibly adapted to the different types of bricks and ensures work safety.
