Vaculex VL - our most heavy-duty vacuum lifter
Vaculex is a strong, versatile and user-friendly model for use with two hands and for lifts between 30 and 200 kg. Vaculex is available in six lift tube sizes, between 100 mm and 200 mm, with five different vacuum pumps and many accessories and suction feet for a virtually infinite number of combinations. Normally, Vaculex is driven by an electric vacuum pump for best performance and flexibility but we can also provide pneumatic vacuum pumps if required.
Lift almost everything - With a vacuum tube lifter you can lift boxes, sacks, drums, sheet metal, computers, crates, barrels, TVs and much more - depending on equipment and accessories. The design consists of a pump, vacuum hose, lift tube, control unit and finally a suction foot or possibly a gripping tool which is adapted to your needs. Good ergonomics is good economics - Repeated lifts do not have to be heavy to be both dangerous and costly. Most often, vacuum tube lifters lead to an increased work rate and better productivity. Costs for extended periods of sick leave are reduced and rehabilitation periods are avoided. Our tube lifters minimize that type of problem and also reduce the risk of accidents that can injure the user as well as damage the goods.
