What Do Vacuum Lifters Do?

Vacuum lifters can lift materials and components that have a flat or smooth surface. The clue is in the name: vacuum lifters used a vacuum to handle various load types. They grip, support, lift and lower a load with single operator control. This operation is fast and smooth, making them ideal for repetitive handling tasks.

The suction feet allow components to be lifted without damage to the surface or edges, a problem often caused by manual lifts or grippers. This makes them ideal for manipulating products in white goods and panel, boards, and sheets industries.

Vacuum lifters are low maintenance and regular servicing further reduces downtime and disruption, which improves production line efficiency and provides a cost-effective handling solution.

Vacuum lifting can be provided in several ways, including a vacuum gripper, a vacuum tube lifter or a vacuum lifting beam.

Why Are Vacuum Lifters Used?

Vacuum lifters can help increase productivity while offering an ergonomic solution to your material handling needs. From the below, do any of these concern you in your current workplace? 

  • Products are heavier than 10kg
  • Products need to be moved regularly from one location to another
  • Product locations are not easily accessible for workers
  • Tasks are becoming more difficult for workers
  • Workers are performing repetitive tasks daily
  • There is an increase in backaches, sore joints, and other injuries
  • Efficiency is not as high as it could be


If you have any of the above issues in your working environment, you will benefit from investing in a materials handling solution. You will have access to expert engineers that are passionate about helping you improve the health and safety of your workers.

You can depend on outstanding, professional customer service from a team who will understand your requirements and recommend a solution that fits your needs and constraints.

Vacuum Grippers Full Turnkey Solution with Industrial Manipulator

Vacuum Grippers

Vacuum grippers have multiple suction feet built into a frame. This frame is attached to an industrial manipulator which allows full movement and rotation of the load. They can lift the load from a vertical or horizontal position and can turn or move it to a desired location.

With fast and smooth operation, vacuum grippers are ideal for repetitive handling tasks. They are an ergonomic handling solution and increase workplace productivity.

Vacuum Lifting Beams Full Turnkey Solution with Industrial Manipulator

Vacuum Lifting Beams

Multiple suction feet built into a specialised frame are known as vacuum lifting beams. These beams can be suspended from an overhead crane or an industrial manipulator and can provide added travel and degrees of movement.

Vacuum lifting beams are perfect for lifting large glass panels or metal sheets. The suction feet offer multiple places for the load to attach, which can allow large safe working loads.

Vacuum Tube Lifters Lifting Product

Vacuum Tube Lifters

Vacuum tube lifters are excellent systems to use as material handling equipment, as they feel weightless and can be used by a single operator. They are given their name as the tube that supplies the vacuum also provides the lifting action.

They are often used with a jib crane. The jib crane suspends the vacuum tube lifter and provides added horizontal travel, allowing the worker to extend their reach, whilst the lifting system supports the weight.
