Manipulator for handling large-sized flat and curved glass elements in difficult to access areas (facade openings, eaves)
- 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 (concave or convex, bending radius ≥ 1.6 m) in difficult to access areas (façade openings, eaves). 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 vacuum based load lifting attachment OKTOPUS® GL-MGS 4600 GGA is designed to handle large-sized glass panes and window elements with a maximum weight of up to 4600 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). Furthermore, the load can be balanced by an integrated movable counterweight balancer. The overhang reaching from the suction frame to the crane mounting can be adjusted (range: 2 m to 5.7 m) with the help of a hand crank. The suction frame can hydraulically be rotated endless by 360°, tilted by -45° to +10°and swiveled by ±20°. 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.
Material to be handled
The OKTOPUS® GL-MGS 4600 is suitable for handling flat glass panes, curved glass panes (concave or convex, bending radius ≥ 1.6 m) and window elements. 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 film.
