Get a handle on doors with Vaculex lifters

A booming construction industry requires doors, and Piab’s ergonomic Vaculex lifters offer perfect solutions for both production and warehouse environments, according to AWFS exhibitor.

“Importantly, the lifters also provide safe and ergonomic working conditions for manufacturing or warehousing staff,” the company said in a statement. “Vaculex lifters offer effortless handling of all types of doors in a variety of production or assembly situations. The semi-automated lifters are designed to handle even the heaviest of fire doors, often weighing in excess of 75 kg (165 lbs.).

“The flexible Vaculex VL can be adapted to perfectly fit a wide range of different door designs and manufacturing processes. The Vaculex range of standard components can be used to make up solutions for lifting, tilting and turning doors, and for positioning in pre-fabricated units. The vacuum lifters can be configured to safely hold on to the door at any predetermined point or position, such as its side, top or bottom.”
