The compact lifting device eT-Hover-univac is modularly extendable. With the corresponding extension arms and four additional suction plates, not only can the device be adapted to different plate formats, but the maximum carrying capacity can also be increased to 700 kg. In its compact standard version with four suction plates, the device can lift 360 kg vertically and 500 kg horizontally. The vacuum lifting device by Eurotech is designed as an attachment for crane and lifting equipment in accordance with the DIN EN 13155 standard. It is suitable for lifting and moving large-surface loads made of glass, wood and coated particle boards, as well as other materials such as stone, metal or plastic.
Whether intended for interior design purposes such as handling of wood panels or for outdoor use during window installation, the battery-powered eT-Hover-univac is available both as construction lifting equipment as well as in the indoor version. A quick change of the plate formats, which are to be attached by suction, is no problem. The extension arms and four additional suction plates and the corresponding vacuum hoses, which are easily docked to the existing suction plates, can be attached to the device individually. Without extension arms, two positions for each suction plate are possible, and with the extension, there can be three more positions per suction plate. For rough and structured surfaces, such as brushed wood or structured glass, other suitable suction plates can be attached.
The lifting device can be continuously rotated manually by 360° and pivoted automatically or manually by 90°. In order to be able to work on narrow surfaces, such as between the scaffold and building facade, the swing arm can be removed. All operating elements are integrated into the device. Its scope of application is expanded further by an optional remote-control function: the suction and rapid ventilation functions can be controlled wirelessly. This increases safety during work on ladders and scaffolds, facilitates handling, and in many cases saves the need for additional labour. The range of the radio remote control comprises about 50 to 100 meters in disturbance-free environments.
By means of the quick venting function, the load can be quickly detached from the eT-Hover-univac. This saves time during the tedious work process. An energy-saving function ensures that the vacuum pump will only remain switched on until the necessary vacuum suction has been reached.
In the dual-circuit version, all vacuum components starting from the vacuum pump, such as the non return valve, the vacuum reservoir and the vacuum gauge, are present in duplicate. The lifting device which is mounted on the crane is ready for operation once there is sufficient under pressure. The controller continuously monitors the vacuum. Disruptions or a loss in vacuum suction is indicated by optical or acoustic signals.
