Swivelling workpieces by 180°
The VacuMaster 180° vacuum lifting device is able to lift and rotate a workpiece through 180 degrees, with a simple push of a button.

The lifter is perfect for loading vertical saws and edge grinders, and is also helpful in stacking and destacking of sheets of product.

The lifters are suitable for sheet metal, plastics, glass and laminated board.


Features Include

  • Vibration-free swivelling of workpieces with electrically powered linear drive unit
  • Individual adaptation of the device with a compact modular system
  • Audible warning in the case of a power failure
  • Large vacuum reservoir
  • Safety mechanisms to prevent incorrect operation
  • Clearly visible vacuum gauge
  • Easy handling thanks to low intrinsic weight
  • All controls easily accessible


Ergonomic Options

During the development of these devices, great emphasis was placed on functionality, safety and ergonomic considerations. There are two options to choose when considering the operator controls – the Basic, or the Comfort.

Operator Handle Basic Operator Handle Comfort

Incorporates an ergonomic double-action slide valve to prevent accidental dropping of the load

Vacuum on/off is operated by a two-handed push-button control. Integrated buttons also control the hoisting functions


Modular Components

The vacuum lifter has been designed to be very modular. Choosing from different components, a unique specialised lifting system can be created. By using different vacuum pumps, main beams, cross beams, suction plates, suction plate holders and control handles, a lifting device can be created to best suit the workpiece.


Various Basic Modules

  • Extremely insensitive to dirt
  • Components protected by a robust sheet-metal cover
  • Easy operation thanks to easily legible, integrated controls
  • Vacuum gauge with safety RED-GREEN zones
  • Integrated Low-vacuum audible alarm
  • Vacuum generator easily accessible for maintenance
  • Lifting eye for suspension from crane


Long-life Vacuum Pumps

  • Pump size can be selected to match the properties of the workpiece
  • Regulated vacuum generators, pump with energy-saving function (Comfort model)
  • Country-specific voltages available


Rotator Unit

  • Vibration-free, electrically powered linear drive unit
  • Able to be stopped at any location through the rotation process
  • Innovative compact linkage system allows 180° rotation using linear action


Aluminium Main Beam

  • Main beam cavity becomes a large integrated vacuum reservoir
  • Integrated vacuum distributor channel provides a neat and compact vacuum hose system
  • Low intrinsic weight
  • Corrosion-resistant


Adjustable Cross Beams

  • Utilises modern technical plastic materials
  • Easily slide the cross beams along the main beam without scratching
  • Low intrinsic weight
  • Tested functionality and high reliability


Adjustable Suction-Pad Holders

  • Utilises modern technical plastic materials
  • Easily slide the suction pads along the cross beam without scratching
  • Low intrinsic weight
  • Tested functionality and high reliability


Large range of suction pads

  • Individual selection of the suction pads to suit the size and weight of the workpiece
  • Suction plates SPU for lifting workpieces with smooth surfaces
  • Suction plates SPK for lifting workpieces with structured surfaces such as checker plates
  • Pad sizes range in size from Ø125mm to Ø400mm
  • Suction plates have replaceable seals to reduce running costs


Accessories:

Suction pad Isolation CEE Plug Parking Stand

Isolate individual suction pads

CEE plug and coupling for quick disconnect of power to the vacuum lifting device.

Parking feet for preventing damage to the suction pads.
