Sheet Metal Handling Vacuum Lifters
A vacuum based sheet lifter was installed suspended from a high speed servo drive lifting device. The sheet metal handling system controls were installed on an extended handle; the sheet lifter was fitted with pneumatic/vacuum components designed for the high temperature; the tooling is adjustable to handle a wide range of sheet sizes. The operation is now being performed by a single operator working away from the radiant heat; additionally, the risk of burns and lifting injuries has been removed from the job function. The below video will show the operator using the sheet metal handling system in its first day of service.
