Almost any other material with an airtight surface can be handled using vacuum handling technology. For example, not only concrete, metal and paper, but also glass, plastics, wood and bluestone can be vacuum-handled.
Glass handling with vacuum technology
For standard applications, vacuum based lifting equipment for glass handling is available from various suppliers. When it comes to glass handling, Aerolift stands out with custom-built vacuum lifters, designed to client or application specific needs. Especially for applications that are repetitive in nature, Aerolift is able to develop fully automated, robot-like lifting machines. In addition, Aerolift has developed vacuum lifters especially for glass handling in high-rise construction. Combined with a truck mounted crane and telehandlers these vacuum lifters are used for installing front walls and windows.
Handling plastics with vacuum technology
As with glass handling, Aerolift are specialists when it comes to designing and building vacuum lifters to customer specifications. However, the applications of vacuum technology in plastics are much more diverse. For example, vacuum technology is used in this sector for handling:
bulk storage (e.g. drums and tanks);
façade cladding panels (profiles);
wind turbine rotor blades;
spar caps and other such strength reinforcers. These can be form-removed and 90% tilted with Aerolift vacuum lifters.
Vacuum technology in the timber industry
Wooden products must have an airtight surface to be able to be vacuum-handled. Before handling wood with a vacuum system, it is essential to make sure the product is airtight. At lumber yards vacuum lifters are commonly used in combination with an overhead crane. Aerolift have developed vacuum lifters in combination movable hoist systems that can handle timber boards of varying lengths. This enables you to handle boards of, for example, six meters up to twelve meters long with the same devide. Vacuum technology is equally effective in timber framed housing construction. It will lift walls, as well as turning them 90 degrees and position them in place.
Handling sandstone, bluestone and clay products with vacuum technology
Polished surfaces are easy to damage. To prevent harming materials with a precious surface, a vacuum lifter is an excellent choice, especially for operations that are repetitive in character. Think of handling of:
laboratory conduction equipment.
In sandstone cutting and concrete prefab industries, vacuum lifters are used at both loading and transfer stations. Clay products can also be handled with a vacuum lifter. And, vacuum technology is particularly effective in underwater operations, for example, for water-proofing canals and overhead crossings.
