Specifically designed for handling stone slabs, Wood’s Powr-Grip’s MT Series Stone Lifters feature a 90-degree (manual) 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. 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.
