Anver Corporation (Hudson, MA) offers an air powered vacuum lifter with 180 deg flip designed for one person to seamlessly lift, tilt, and flip over long, bulky loads made from non- and semi-porous material. This load-flipping system is ideal for inspecting common sheet and plate panels.
Product features include an adjustable bale with a fully integrated operator control handle for easy maneuverability, an all-steel welded frame with dual air cylinders to rotate loads horizontally and vertically, and a locking attach/release valve and vacuum reservoir to maintain vacuum hold in case of a power outage. Other standard features include a dual air filter, an air Venturi vacuum pump, and mounted hand toggles that provide smooth, speed-controlled movements. This one-operator system will help reduce labor and increase productivity and safety in most work environments.
Supplied with standard vacuum pads using rubber or foam seals, these below-the-hook upender vacuum lifters are available for loads up to 750 lb (340 kg). Price quotations are available upon request.
