What are the vacuum lifters for?
Vacuum devices are used for non-invasive conveyance of concrete elements, curbs, plates or concrete pipes. Vacuum lifter is sucked into concrete elements thanks to negative pressure. First of all, this solution allows for safe and accurate work. Secondly, it enables precise laying of even large concrete slabs with appropriate gaps. What is of paramount importance, the suction plate does not leave any marks on the elements. Vacuum lifters effectively prevent damage to materials, which often happens when working with traditional methods. The great advantage of using vacuum lifters is also the increase in work efficiency. CatchShift devices were manufactured in accordance with applicable and strict safety standards.
The discussed model is the smallest lifter from the manufacturer's offer. Equipped with an electric vacuum pump with a maximum power of 1700 W, it provides excellent performance and job security. The capacity depends on the suction plate installed and depending on the model chosen it can be from 38 kg up to 100 kg. The suction plates are also available in various sizes, which increases the possibility of configuration. The device is designed to be operated by two people. Perfect for paving works when lifting concrete, pavement or curb slabs. The gripper with a 40 × 40 suction cup weighs 26 kg.
