Liftex Solutions specialises in the development and delivery of cost effective solutions for the many and varied lifting and manual handling problems confronting businesses and work places throughout Australia.
As far as sheet steels, the major problems in handling these type of materials in the horizontal position are the flexibility and awkwardness of the sheet, weight and the unsuitability of conventional plate clamps for the task.
The innovative adjustable sheet lifter attachments from Liftef Solutions were designed and manufactured to lift a variety of mild steel and stainless steel sheets up to 3000 x 1200mm and 200kg. Attachment to the stainless steel sheets is by vacuum, produced via a connection to a compressed air source.
The sheet lifters, electric hoists and Gorbel jib cranes included in these lifter attachments allow a previously dangerous operation using four people to be replaced by a safe and efficient one man operation.
The adjustable sheet lifter attachments also eliminated costly damage to the product during handling.
