The lifting devices in the eT-Hover-element series are suitable for the vertical lifting of vacuum-tight loads with smooth or lightly structured surfaces, such as glass panes, sheet metal, plastic panels and similar materials. The device can pivot these loads up to a certain degree by drawing the panels into the upper part, where gravity moves them from a horizontal to a vertical position (or vice versa). It can handle panels sized up to 6.000 x 3.000 mm.
Depending on the equipment used, the eT-Hover-element can lift loads weighing between 500 and 1,000 kg. The frame, which fulfils the function of a vacuum reservoir, consists of a vacuum-tight welded construction with all necessary equipment, such as a warning system, vacuum generator and control/regulation units in accordance with DIN EN 13155.
The pivoting main beam is connected to the main frame. The cross beams attached to it in the form of suspended arms can be adjusted along the main beam. The suction plates are attached to the cross beam with cross clamping pieces; they are also adjustable. All suction plates can be locked individually using a ball valve.
