Stratalign offers a complete range of electric and battery powered crane mounted or forklift mounted vacuum lifting devices for the handling of steel sheet or plate, alloys, concrete, stone, marble, granite and panels. Capacities range from 30 kgs up to 50,000 kgs. Available with single pad, multi pad, radio control, 90 degrees and180 degrees tilting options.
Vacuum lifting can be used to lift and manoeuvre both porous and non-porous materials.
This system provides the operator with continuous status indication during the lifting process. Should the operator try to lift a sheet incorrectly then the red xenon flash/warning sounder will operate. The system is inherently safe. It will not pick up panels unless initial sealing criteria are met. Once suction is achieved a clamping force of at least 3 times the maximum capacity will be achieved. (safety factor is minimum 3). The sealing system has been specially designed for all types of surfaces from rough to smooth.
