Vacuum Lifters & Equipment for Window Manufacturing & FabricationHandling windows and the glass to construct them 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 manufacture windows with below-the-hook vacuum lifters and other high-quality products. Today, WPG continues to make window manufacturing more efficient, ergonomic and secure through innovative engineering of vacuum lifters and other equipment.

  • Design testing ensures that Powr-Grip vacuum lifters are built to handle the day-to-day demands of production settings.
  • 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 WPG vacuum lifter is ready to move glass.
Whether you are assembling windows in the shop or manufacturing windows on production lines, Wood's Powr-Grip has the right vacuum equipment to produce windows more easily and safely.
