Having access to the best possible lifting equipment will greatly benefit staff health and productivity in any warehousing or manufacturing setting. The challenge lies in selecting the right equipment, which often involves a complex selection process and a considerable investment. No two facilities are alike in terms of size, layout or material handling requirements. This article takes aim at being a practical primer to get you started in the selection process – and an overview of what types of equipment is best suited for or can be adapted to suit specific tasks.
Material handling is a central element in any logistics, warehousing or manufacturing context. Items have to be moved across short and medium distances using methods that are as efficient as possible. In addition, it has to be done with ergonomics and staff health in mind. While identifying new and more effective workflows is always a challenge, there is no need to compromise on either efficiency or ergonomics.
Safety is one of the main reasons for investing in vacuum lifting equipment. Compared to manual handling, vacuum lifting is not only much more efficient – it also reduces or even eliminates many of the short-term and long-term health risks. With a vacuum lift, anyone can handle heavy loads without effort and in ergonomically correct positions. However, as with any material handling solution, it is important that the equipment is properly maintained and that the operator knows how to safely use it. This article is not a substitute for adequate training in vacuum lifting. It is intended as a brief overview of some of the important safety principles.
Vacuum technology is an irreplaceable part of a wide range of scientific and industrial applications. You will find vacuum systems in areas as diverse as packaging, freeze-drying, numerous forms of manufacturing, and even particle accelerators. This article is a brief overview of vacuum technology in general and, more specifically, how it is applied in vacuum lifting.
