Ergonomic vacuum lifting
22 July 2015
Visitors to PPMA Show 2015 will be able to see vacuum lifting demonstrations on the Advanced Handling stand, which will highlight the benefits of integrating ergonomic lifting equipment.
In a recent example, the company addressed a task which involves unstacking 50kg cardboard boxes onto the floor where each box is opened; the bag inside is removed and the contents emptied into a drum.
The Vacuhand V system was designed to improve each stage of the process. Using the vacuum tube lifter the bags now are now lifted from the boxes, and using the ‘hands off hover’ function the operator is able to open the bags from beneath directly emptying the contents into the drum. Stand H86
