Vacuum Lifters for Glass Tempering and LaminatingHandling glass for tempering and laminating operations has long been a challenge to manufacturers and fabricators alike. Since 1964, Wood's Powr-Grip has been making glass handling easier and less dangerous with hand-held vacuum cups, below-the-hook vacuum lifters and other high-quality products. Today, WPG continues to make glass handling more efficient, ergonomic and secure through innovative vacuum lifter engineering.

  • 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 handling glass in the fabrication shop or on high-speed production lines, Wood's Powr-Grip has the right equipment to make tempering and laminating operations easier and safer.
