An air-powered vacuum lifter-tilter that features fully adjustable suction cups for handling multi-dimensional architectural panels and large metal plates is now available from Anver Corp. of Hudson, MA.
The Anver AT Series Vacuum Lifter-Tilter is a powered lifter that employs a compressed air cylinder for powered tilting, and lets one person easily lift and tilt panels weighing up to 2,000 pounds, reports the manufacturer. Featuring fully adjustable suction cups with extra long suspensions and individual air valves, this lifter-tilter can accommodate large panels with varying dimensions.
Equipped with extra long handles to keep the operator safely away from the load, the Anver AT Series Vacuum Lifter-Tilter includes a vacuum loss sensor and an audio-visual alarm, and can be supplied with a variety of suction cups for handling different surfaces. According to Anver Corp., this below-the-hook lifter-tilter eliminates hooks and slings. Electric powered versions are also offered.
