A wide range of devices for almost every application

The lifting system VacuMaster Horizontal is suitable for many vacuum handling applications. Typical workpieces handled with these devices includes sheetmetal, laminated board, plastic sheets, drums, benchtops and more.

Workpieces can range in shape and size, with weights of up to 750kg and sheet sizes up to 4000mm x 2000mm possible.

Features Include

  • Long lifetime due to extremely robust construction
  • 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

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


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.
