Vacuum Lifter Case Study


The Challenge:

To provide our customer, an industrial metal parts stamping facility, with a safer and more efficient way to load their laser cutting machine.

Special Considerations:

Our customer needed to be able to load the machine with a large piece of sheet metal quickly and safely.  The machine was in a current manufacturing facility which had low ceiling clearance.

 Our TEAM Approach:

Crane-Tec worked closely with the customer to learn their specific needs and expectations of the new system.  With our combined efforts, many options were presented, including:

  • Using the existing building trusses to support a Spanco underhung push-pull bridge, trolley and runway system

  • Installing an R&M electric two speed chain hoist

  • Using an Anver vacuum air lifter with built-in air compressor to lift the sheets with ease.


Crane-Tec’s highly skilled installers installed a state of the art lifting system in just under 24 hours, keeping our customer’s production staff with minimal down time. They are now able to load the machine more safely and efficiently.
