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


The OKTOPUS® GL-M 1500 is suitable for handling flat glass panes 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.

  • at the crane hook


The radio-controlled vacuum based load lifting attachment OKTOPUS® GL-M 1500 DES So 530 R E B24 P with integrated counterweight balancer is designed to handle large-sized glass panes and window elements with a maximum weight of up to 1,500 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 that can be adjusted electrically by 200 mm allows attaching the device to an existing hoist (provided by the customer). The integrated shifting counterweight balancer allows balancing the device with suctioned load.

Due to the overhang reaching from the suction frame to the crane mounting, loads up to a weight of 1,500 kg can be installed below canopies or overhangs. The length of the overhang of version I (short) amounts to 70 cm. By mounting the front and the back extensions the overhang is increased and by that the accessible depth of overhangs to 3.5 m.

The suction frame can electrically be rotated endless by 360° and tilted hydraulically by -24°/+18°. In addition the counterweight balancer can be tilted hydraulically by 90° and hydraulically height adjusted by 300 mm. 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.
