Vacuum lifter for construction site use with manual rotating and tilting function

Dual-circuit system
for construction site use according to DIN EN 13155

Handling flat glass, concave or convex curved glass panes with bending radius ≥ 2 m (only together with optional available suction pad adapter for curved glass panes) and window elements on construction sites. The suction areas of the elements to be lifted must be air-impermeable, have to have an even and clean surface and must not be covered with protective foil.

Extension arms allow handling large-sized elements up to a maximum weight of 1000 kg. The optional available lowering cylinder allows a smooth and jerkless lowering of the load. The also optional available blow-off function eases and quickens release of the suctioned glass panes.
In order to manipulate curved glass panes with the OKTOPUS® GLASS-Jack GL-KN 1000 as well, we developed a special suction pad adapter. It allows manipulating convex or concave curved glass panes with a radius of at least 2000 mm. With a total of 16 suction pads the suction pad adapter can securely lift and transport loads of up to 800 kg. The total weight of the OKTOPUS® GLASS-Jack GL-KN 1000 with mounted adapter for curved glass panes amounts to 180 kg. Deviations from the nominal condition are indicated by optical and acoustical warning devices. Even in the case of complete energy breakdown the vacuum remains in each suction pad for at least 5 minutes. In this way a secure lowering of the load can be ensured at all times.
