Vacuum lifters and tilters available
A full line of powered vacuum lifters and tilters for handling large, flat panels and awkward loads without slings, clamps or hooks that can cause damage is available from Anver Corp. The Anver ET Series of vacuum lifters and tilters is capable of lifting loads from horizontal to vertical, and will stay in place if dropped during transfer, the company reports. Offered with four or eight adjustable vacuum pads, these lifters allow for one-person manipulation of awkward loads. Ideal for handling standard 6- x 8-foot panels, the Anver ET Series lifters are available in 500-, 1,000- and 2,000-pound capacity models. Powered by either electricity or compressed air, they provide a 100% duty cycle, instant attach and release, and they can be operated in conjunction with a hoist.
