Manipulator with integrated counterweight balancer for construction site use with electrically driven rotating and hydraulic tilting function

Dual-circuit system

  • 2 independent vacuum circuits, each vacuum circuit with 2-fold safety and integrated vacuum reservoir
  • for construction site use according to DIN EN 13155


Handling flat glass and window elements between buildings and below canopies, overhangs or other difficult to access areas. 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.


  • truck-mounted crane, mini crane


  • at the crane hook


The vacuum based load lifting attachment OKTOPUS® GL-M 1200 DES So 530 R E B24 P is designed to handle large-sized glass panes and window elements up to a maximum weight of 1200 kg. It is equipped with a dual-circuit vacuum system for construction site use according to DIN EN 13155. The crane eye of the device allows attaching the device to an existing hoist (provided by the customer).

The integrated movable counterweight balancer allows balancing the device with the suctioned load. Due to the overhang reaching from the suction frame to the crane mounting it is possible to install loads with a maximum weight of up to 1,200 kg below canopies or overhangs with a depth of up to 70 cm.

The suction frame can electrically be rotated endless by 360° and hydraulically be tilted by -24°/+18°. The operating and display elements are arranged ergonomically and allow comfortably positioning and moving the load. The electrically operated vacuum pump is supplied with energy by a 24 V DC battery system. Deviations from the nominal condition are indicated by optical and acoustical warning devices. Even in the case of complete energy breakdown, 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.
