MILLSOM Materials Handling , in partnership with Schmalz GmbH, has released the latest range of the VacuMaster-Comfort sheet lifters.

The Comfort model allows for the horizontal vacuum lifting and transfer of products with four load ranges from 125kg through to 750kg. Other variations allow for turning of products by 90° or 180°.

The benefits of the new range can be seen in its increased versatility and agility, and the decreased weight of the lifting mechanism.

The key difference between the VacuMaster Basic and the Comfort model is the integrated lifting controls on the operating mechanism. The standard controls on the Basic model make it easy to operate, however the integrated controls on the Comfort model allows more control and greater functionality, further increasing work place safety and reducing operator stress and fatigue.

All Millsom vacuum lifters are designed and manufactured in accordance with AS4991-2004- Lifting Devices.

Other benefits include:

* Provides faster lifting and moving of loads than other conventional materials handling systems.

* Grips workloads safely without damaging them.

* Failsafe system prevents the load from dropping in the event of a power failure or loss of air supply.


Used in a wide variety of applications including lifting and the loading of CNC machines and power saws with sheet metal or metal plate, sheet glass and laminated sheet of MDF or particle board, doors, window frames, etc.

For loads with airtight surfaces, there are virtually no limits to the possible applications.
