Vacuum tube lifters provide an ergonomic working environment by preventing health problems resulting from lifting and moving heavy loads. Paired with a Schmalz aluminum crane system, the lifter-crane combination sets the stage for implementing new, ergonomic work processes where manual lifting once occurred.

Three distinct models make up Schmalz’s Jumbo line of vacuum tube lifters: the JumboFlex, JumboErgo and JumboSprint. These lifters, which use only vacuum to raise and lower loads, are used in a wide variety of industries to ensure efficient material flows. They allow loads to be handled faster and more securely while protecting both the materials and your employees.

The JumboFlex vacuum tube lifter allows you to move lighter goods up to 50 kg ergonomically and with high cycle rates. The control handle fits comfortably in the hand and allows the operator to work for a long period of time without fatigue. With simple, one-finger control, lifting, lowering and releasing the load is extremely intuitive. The JumboFlex’s wide range of features allows it to tackle virtually any task, and it comes standard with a quick-change system for replacing the vacuum grippers.

For the task of lifting and maneuvering heavy sacks, for example, the JumboFlex could be paired with a round or oval vacuum gripper with skirt for optimal sealing.

The JumboErgo vacuum tube lifter can handle workpieces of many different shapes and sizes. The twist grip is designed to operate like a motorcycle throttle so that large, heavy loads can be moved gently and precisely. The adjustable length operator handle allows the user to always maintain a safe distance from the load.

For compact workpieces, Schmalz recommends the JumboSprint. This lifter features a bow-shaped operator handle that extends all the way around the unit, allowing the user to optimally position the unit on compact goods, such as bags. The load is raised by pulling up on the handle lever and lowered by pushing down.
