With the VacuMaster Wood from J. Schmalz GmbH, a single person ergonomically transports boards via chain hoist and crane system from the warehouse to saws and other tools, or lifts and swivels them during manual processing. The special suction plates of the vacuum load carrier are kept narrow but absorb high lateral forces. The holders give users the option of rotating the contact surfaces by 90 degrees and also adjusting the suction plate distances as required. Should the application change over time, the horizontal unit can be converted to the 90 degree swivel version. The stable steel traverse system is designed for loads of up to 250 kilograms and is available in various lengths - optionally also with crossbars. An integrated dust filter protects the ejector from contamination, which is particularly important in dusty locations. This increases its service life and thus saves costs. The user can reach the filter to clean it via the side and front cover, which can be removed without tools, and also has access to all relevant parts for servicing.
The VacuMaster Wood works with compressed air - at six bar - and can therefore be used worldwide, regardless of voltage and frequency. The high-flow ejector guarantees high suction power. This is quiet and economical. As soon as a safe vacuum level is reached, it goes into energy-saving mode to save compressed air. On airtight surfaces, the integrated vacuum reservoir maintains the vacuum even in the event of media, emergency or power failures in order to safely unload the workpiece.
The load carrier is available in the Comfort version. The basic body is slim and weight-saving in terms of ergonomics. It also has a control panel of the same name. With it, the user not only switches the vacuum on and off, but also controls the chain hoist and the pneumatic swivel cylinder. Schmalz offers compatible models as well as the matching crane system. The VacuMaster Wood will be officially available in autumn.
