Manipulator for handling large-sized flat and curved glass elements

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 and curved glass panes on construction sites (radius ≥ 0.5 m)


  • crane


  • at the crane hook


The vacuum based load lifting attachment OKTOPUS® GL-MGS 1000 is designed for handling glass panes and window elements up to a maximum weight of 1000 kg for construction site use.

The suction frame can hydraulically be tilted by 90° and rotated electrically driven by 360°. Furthermore, the load can be balanced by an integrated counterweight balancer. All functions are operated with a remote control (optional radio remote control). The necessary negative pressure is generated by a 24 V DC operated vacuum pump. To improve the releasing behavior of the pane, the device is equipped with a blow-off function.

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.

Material to be handled

The OKTOPUS® GL-MGS 1000 is suitable for handling flat glass, curved glasses (concave or convex, bending radius ≥ 0.5 m) and window elements. The suction areas of the load to be lifted must be air-impermeable, have to have an even and clean surface and must not be covered with protective foil.
