Jumbo Vacuum Tube Lifters

Jumbo is a familiar nickname for an elephant, however elephants are not only large – they are also very strong, reliable and intelligent, just like our jumbo vacuum tube lifters!

The Schmalz Jumbo Vacuum Tube Lifting system is the intelligent answer to your manual handling problems. Its secret: only one medium is responsible for holding the load and lifting it… VACUUM!

There is no need for hoists, manipulators or pneumatic cylinders to pick up and lift the workpiece. The operator controls the vacuum in the system with a valve on the control handle. A higher vacuum lifts the load, a lower vacuum lowers it.

Improve your manual handling techniques, when looking for lifting equipment a vacuum lifter makes manual handling easy and can help avoid manual handling injuries.

DON’T FORGET! When looking for a vacuum lifter provider make sure they design and manufacture the required crane system in-house, many suppliers just buy from a crane company. Make sure you have the peace of mind knowing your supplier is responsible for the complete package.

  • Special upper swivel allows continuous 360° rotation of control handle.
  • Even very heavy loads can be positioned safely and precisely.
