PT10HV11 vacuum lifter from Wood’s Powr-Grip


Increase safety, speed and efficiency when lifting and maneuvering stone slabs with the PT10HV11 vacuum lifter from Wood’s Powr-Grip. Capable of lifting loads up to 1,500 pounds (680 kg), the Powered Tilter 1500 spreads the weight of the slab across the pad frame, reducing the risk of breaking or dropping stone. While this unique pad frame is sized to handle large stone slabs, optional shutoffs for individual vacuum pads permit attachment to a wide variety of load sizes or shapes. The PT10HV11 was specifically designed with 10 10-inch [25-cm] lipped vacuum cups, equipped with foam pad rings that enable this heavy-duty vacuum lifter to seal onto honed, saw-cut and flamed surfaces as well as polished stone. With power tilting of loads 90 degrees between flat and upright positions, the PT10HV11 is ideal for transferring slabs between upright storage racks and cutting tables or horizontal processing machines.

Recently developed Pad Frame Extensions provide an option to augment the versatility of the PT10HV11 vacuum lifter. Specifically engineered to fit both new and used vacuum lifters, these extension arms allow the operator to reconfigure the pad frame layout to accommodate different-sized or irregularly shaped loads. With the new Pad Frame Extension arms in place, the PT10HV11 is now configured to support significantly wider or longer loads (depending on configuration), reports Wood’s Powr-Grip.
