Vacuum Cups & Vacuum Lifters for Automotive Production.
Handling auto glass and body panels can be a challenge, whether on a production line or in a custom fabrication shop. That's why Wood's Powr-Grip® is pleased to offer a full line of hand-held vacuum cups and below-the-hook vacuum lifters for just such purposes. WPG pump-style vacuum cups put a handle where you need it on a wide variety of curved or flat surfaces, while leaving glass and panel edges free for easy installation. Powr-Grip vacuum lifters enable a single operator to lift heavy, awkward windshields, windows and body panels, while improving safety and efficiency. Unlike traditional handling methods, WPG vacuum attaching equipment provides a convenient and secure way to move auto glass and panels, with little risk of damage or injury.

  • A red-line indicator or available Audio Alarm on Powr-Grip hand cups alerts the user of any significant vacuum loss.
  • Flexible rubber vacuum pads used in WPG products attach securely to nonporous materials, without harming most surfaces.
  • Vacuum gauges with colored zones on Powr-Grip vacuum lifters clearly indicate whether vacuum is sufficient for lifting.
  • Indicator lights and buzzers signal when a WPG vacuum lifter is ready to move the load.
Whether you are lifting and moving heavy panels to processing operations in the factory, installing windshields and automotive side lites on the production line, or finishing and fitting panels in a body shop, Wood's Powr-Grip makes your job faster and easier with a wide selection of hand-held vacuum cups and below-the-hook vacuum lifters!
