High-Elevation Hand Cup Now Available

WPG's New High-Elevation Vacuum Hand Cup.Wood’s Powr-Grip® is proud to announce the addition of a very specialized vacuum cup to its growing line of hand-held vacuum lifting equipment – an 8" [20 cm] flat vacuum cup for high elevations.

For years, there has been a void in the vacuum lifting market when it comes to performance at higher elevations. Wood's Powr-Grip's N4100 is a new breed of vacuum cup that is specifically designed to fill this void and function at elevations up to 12,000 feet [3650 meters].

With a lifting capacity of 100 lbs [45 kg], the N4100 features a lightweight, rugged ABS handle that helps stave off user fatigue. It attaches rapidly to smooth, flat nonporous surfaces for use on a variety of materials ranging from glass to metal. While in use, the Wood's Powr-Grip trademark red-line indicator warns the The blue plunger distinguishes the high-elevation hand cup from standard WPG hand-held vacuum cups.user of any loss of vacuum. If the red line should appear during use, a special check valve allows re-pumping without loss of remaining vacuum so the user can continue working without having to reattach to the load. When the user is ready to release from the material being handled, a convenient valve lever enables the quick and complete release of the load.

Unlike other Wood's Powr-Grip hand-held vacuum cups, the N4100 comes with a distinctive blue pumping mechanism. This feature allows the user to discriminate between regular Wood's Powr-Grip hand cups and the high-elevation vacuum cup at a glance, to assure that the right tool is being used for the job.

The new N4100 ships in a protective carrying case and is immediately available. Visit the Wood's Powr-Grip Dealer nearest you, or contact one of our Technical Sales Representatives. As always, you will find additional product information by visiting our website at www.powrgrip.com.
