Vacuum Cups & Vacuum Lifters for Insulating Glass Fabrication & ManufacturingHandling glass for insulating glass units has long been a challenge to manufacturers and fabricators alike. Since 1964, Wood's Powr-Grip has been making it easier and less dangerous to produce IG units with below-the-hook vacuum lifters and other high-quality products. Today, WPG continues to make production of IG units more efficient, ergonomic and secure through innovative engineering of vacuum lifters and other equipment.

  • Pad frames are specially designed to provide needed support while the glass is in motion.
  • Vacuum gauges with colored zones clearly indicate whether vacuum is sufficient for lifting.
  • Indicator lights signal when a Powr-Grip vacuum lifter is ready to move glass.
  • Design testing ensures that WPG vacuum lifters are built to handle the day-to-day demands of production settings.
Whether you are fabricating sealed glass units in the shop or manufacturing IG units on production lines, Wood's Powr-Grip has the right vacuum equipment to produce insulating glass units more easily and safely.
