Vacuum lifters are items of industrial lifting equipment that are designed for handling heavy loads effortlessly and entirely safely. They can be attached to any surface and their grip exploits the negative air pressure generated by means of a vacuum pump, which can be electric, air- or battery-powered. Vacuum lifters are below-the-hook attachments that are attached to regular/overhead cranes or lifting hoists.
There are different vacuum lifters catering to different needs, for lifting materials such as marble, sheet metal, glass and wood. All the various vacuum lifter options are detailed below.
