How to use a vacuum lifter?
Using a TAWI vacuum lifter is both effortless and easy. Anyone will learn how to use it within a few minutes. First make sure the suction cups are firmly placed on the object you need to lift. When you have achieved an air-tight seal between suction cups and workload the vacuum pump will start elevating the load. You can now easily control lifting height by adjusting the lever on the handle.
To make sure lifting height and speed is optimized for your needs you can also adjust the vacuum level through the controls on the handle. Lift and lower the load by adjusting the lever on the handle, place the load where you need it and release it by tilting the suction foot to break the air-tight seal. Working with a vacuum lifter is fast, easy and effortless. They are user-friendly and easy to learn how to operate. Vacuum lifters offer dependable technology that guarantee to meet the needs of your workflow, as well as your workers.
What type of seal is used on vacuum lifters?
TAWI vacuum lifters use different types of suction cups or suction feet depending on the type of load. A solid box or carton is easily gripped with one or more small suction cups. For bags and other more porous loads we normally use a larger suction foot, often accompanied by a rubber skirt to ensure an air-tight seal. When lifting porous loads, a higher flow from the vacuum pump compensates for air leakage and ensures a safe grip.
Multiple lifting applications
The multifunctional lifter is our most flexible lifter, offering a wide selection of tools to handle anything from big cardboard boxes to ungainly plastic bags, blocks of cheese and fragile glass sheets. Need to lift a variety of different goods? A quick coupling allows you to easily switch out the suction tool, in order to handle different goods using the same lifter.
Our adjustable handles allow you to pick up goods from above, from the side, or from both. You can also lift over shoulder height while still maintaining an ergonomic position. The unique TAWI handle is easy to use and lets you control the lifting speed with just one hand, guaranteeing accurate and safe handling. An extended handle will also assist in moving big loads or for reaching far into a pallet rack.
