Technology Update: Wood Powr-Grip’s MT (manual tilt) Series Stone Lifters
Specifically designed for handling stone slabs, Wood Powr-Grip’s MT (manual tilt) Series Stone Lifters feature 90° tilt using an above-center pivot that enables slabs to hang upright when lifted from storage or display racks and tilt to flat when lowered to bridge saws or work tables. These below-the-hook vacuum lifters are designed with a narrow profile that allows them to fit between tight, vertical, storage racks. Available on-board power systems, which can also be mounted remotely, include AC, DC or compressed air. Standard features include Foam Pad Rings, which enable vacuum pads to attach on saw-cut, honed or flamed stone surfaces, and Individual Pad Shutoffs, for handling irregularly shaped slabs or countertops with sink cut-outs. These vacuum lifters are also available with a Flat Lift Adapter, which enables them to load and unload slab saws, CNC machines or other horizontal processing equipment.
