Vacuum lifting tool with safety display makes glass handling safer.
Vacuum lifting tools are among the basic equipment of any glass manufacturing company and are the most important manual tool of glass fitters. The technology of the lifting tool is simple and very functional. In most cases, high-quality professional vacuum lifters perform their duties reliably. However, the vacuum lifting tools available on the market to date all have a weak point – the user does not know when the suction weakens. If leakages occur, for example, due to a glass surface which is not completely clean, porous surfaces of the goods in transit or defective positions on the rubber surfaces of the vacuum, the vacuum performance can abruptly decline. Besides the unavoidable damage of the goods in transit, this spontaneous loss of suction also has a considerable risk of injury for the users of the vacuum lifting tools.

First Vacuum Lifter with Safety Display
Bohle, who will be present at glasstec 2010 with a 1,000 m2 exhibition stand in Hall 9 (Stand D44), now claims to have made a quantum leap in the further development of its Veribor vacuum lifting tool. The company has now equipped the tilt lever lifter, which has been repeatedly improved over the course of the years, with a safety display. “With the vacuum safety display for tilt lever lifters, we are presenting an absolute world innovation, proving how much innovative potential is still concealed in technically-mature products,” explains Dominik Hinzen, manager of marketing and communication of the Bohle Group.
“What was previously only possible for pump lifters is now also possible for Bohle tilt lever lifters: A permanent visual control of the vacuum and the holding force,” continues Hinzen. In combination with a completely new rubber washer, which was introduced as part of the product relaunch, materials with critical surfaces can now also be safely transported. Due to modified geometry and softer rubber material, the holding period and, consequently, the safety when carrying, have been increased again.
