Below-the-Hook Vacuum Lifters for Stone Handling by Wood's Powr-Grip®

Below-the-Hook Vacuum Lifters for Stone Handling by Wood's Powr-Grip®

With standard capacities to 3000 lbs [1360 kg], WPG vacuum lifters can efficiently lift, maneuver and transport large stone slabs between storage racks and CNC machines, slab saws or cutting tables. These AC, DC or air-powered vacuum lifters move heavy stone with the aid of forklifts, cranes or overhead hoists. There is no need to wrestle with slings, tongs or hooks, because Powr-Grip vacuum lifters attach directly to the face of slabs, for easy one-person operation. We manufacture a full line of flat lifters, rotators, tilters and rotator/tilter combinations, in styles for stone installation or processing.

Vacuum lifters from Wood's Powr-Grip offer a variety of standard features and options that are ideally suited to stone handling. Specially designed vacuum pads resist abrasion from rough or contaminated stone surfaces. Foam Pad Rings enable WPG vacuum lifters to seal onto honed, saw-cut and even flamed stone, as well as polished stone surfaces. And Individual Pad Shutoffs allow Powr-Grip vacuum lifters to handle irregularly shaped slabs or counter tops with sink cut-outs. These features come standard on many WPG vacuum lifters for stone handling and are optionally available on others (see FRHV11 and CM1COWB options). Selecting Vacuum Lifters
