Lift sacks and boxes with vacuum

vacuum lifting is TAWI’s simple answer to safer and more effective lifting
For businesses looking to reduce manual handling and improve safety for operators, VacuEasylift will lift, lower, rotate and tilt loads. Proven in many different environments and industries, VacuEasylift provides fast, efficient and ergonomic lifting, coupled with reliability and functionality.
VacuEasylift handles almost all types of loads, including sacks and boxes, sheet wood and other panels. Designed to operate quickly and smoothly, it uses the same handle to lift, lower and release its load, whilst the efficient vacuum holds goods safely and securely.
Using VacuEasylift for sack lifting avoids difficult and hazardous manual lifting and it can lift most commercial sacks. To compensate for any leakage from the sack, a rubber skirt is attached to the lifter’s suction foot.
The VacuEasylift’s optional remote control is frequently requested, allowing the vacuum pump to be controlled without leaving the operating area. For objects where there is not sufficient lifting surface on the top, the VacuEasylift’s angle adapter is the answer, lifting the goods from the side and placing it horizontally.
When lifting sheets or panels, loads are held securely in place with suction feet, the number of feet depending on the dimensions of the sheet. Each suction foot has a gasket, made out of natural rubber, which compensates for any irregularities in the lifting surface.
Doors and windows, electrical goods, drums, crates and bales can all be easily handled by the VacuEasylift and there is even a stainless steel version for the stringent demands of clean room environments. Max lifting capacity is 270 kg.
Also introducing VacuCobra, the easy answer to high speed cargo and baggage handling.
TAWI’s vacuum lifter VacuCobra is designed to make quick work of handling boxes of all shapes and sizes. The VacuCobra rotates the goods, not the lift itself, to achieve the highest possible precision and give full freedom of motion when gripping the load.
The VacuCobra is great for high-speed cargo handling, making quick work of boxed loads up to 50 kg. As quick as manual lifting, the machine takes the strain off the body, offering improved safety for operatives and improved productivity for you. The VacuCobra’s compact size makes it easy to manoeuvre but there have been no compromises on speed or accuracy.
These vacuum lifters can also be used to help eliminate manual handling in airport baggage areas. Ideal for high frequency lifting, the VacuCobra is well-suited to airport baggage handling areas: its one-handed operation lifts up to 50 kg, its suction cup securing bags safely from the side as well as from the top.
