Control and ease

The substances used in the chemical industry typically reach a facility in paper or plastic bags or sometimes pails and drums too. The size and delicacy of these packages presents several material handling challenges. Lifting these heavy goods and holding them while opening and emptying the contents can be even more of a challenge for two people working together.

A TAWI vacuum lifter can be used by a single person, and lift bags of up to 175 lbs, with little to no effort at all. This also reduces the chance of a work related injury or damage to any products. A single worker can take a bag from a pallet to a mixing container, empty the contents and mix them, without losing the suction from the vacuum lifter head, all in a quick amount of time. Enhancing the speed and efficiency of the processing workflow saves time and money as well.

We also provide explosion proof lifts with motors manufactured to offer protection in areas where flammable substances and ignition sources are present, without sacrificing efficiency, safety or ergonomics. Our lifting solutions are perfect for demanding environments that must meet certain strict requirements in order to perform a task.
