Vacuum lifting solution for easier handling of sacks or bags
A new sack lifting solution enables easier handling of sacks and bags
A new sack lifting and splitting vacuum lifting solution from Packline Materials Handling of Poole, Dorset, UK enables the operator to lift and accurately place paper and plastic sacks and bags, as well as boxes, sheets of material, crates and cartons.
When lifting the sacks or bags, the sacks can be split and opened without losing the suction from the vacuum lifting head.
Available in stainless steel, the equipment is suitable for cleanroom environments such as food processing, and in the chemical and pharmaceutical industries.
The two joint swing arm vacuum lifter can continuously rotate, and the slide mechanism on the hinged arm gives a full range of movements. An electrically driven vacuum pump provides both lifting and suction functions and a wide range of quickly interchangeable vacuum heads is available. These vacuum lifting heads have a 'fingertip' control bar so the operator uses minimum effort to move heavy loads.
In the event of a power failure the load is gently lowered to the ground before the suction head will release.
With a remotely installed power pack, the vacuum lifters can also be installed in hazardous areas.
