About us

Company details

Professional handling solutions for the requirements in production, shop floor and for installations on construction sites

For more than 20 years Wirth produces professional handling solutions for the requirements in manufacturing, shop floor and for installations on construction sites. Our extensive know-how secures a safe vacuum-based handling of different construction materials like glass, wood, steel or sandwich elements. To meet the requirements of every material, we have developed the vacuum lifters of the OKTOPUS®-range.

Vacuum handling devices and crane systems – high-quality complete solutions for the optimization of manufacturing processes

Based on the requirements of our clients from the flat glass processing industry, the window industry and structural-facings sector, the new product range OKTOPUS® ERGO had been designed. Along with the new range, a lot of new vacuum lifters for handling and safe and ergonomic transport of flat and curved elements were created. They are characterized by the easy adaptability of their suction frames to different geometries; an easy mobility; a fast, fine and secure positioning as well as cost savings by minimizations of time and a material gentle transport.

For the optimization of production sequences, we offer our clients high-quality complete solutions: vacuum handling devices with a client specific planning and delivery as well as installation of X-Y lightweight crane systems and slewing jib cranes.

Vacuum lifters for installations on construction sites – development of tailor-made solutions

Another emphasis are vacuum lifting devices for transport, handling and installation tasks on construction sites. The vacuum lifters are designed for the use on truck-mounted or mini cranes, telescopic forklift trucks or suitable chain or wire hope hoists.

The core competencies of our long-experienced company are special solutions for non-daily tasks like the handling and installation of extremely heavy weighted or curved glass panes or other construction elements in in-house manufacturing processes or on construction sites using special mechanically, electrically, pneumatically or hydraulically drives and special suction cup forms. Glass pane lengths of up to 18 meters, glass pane weights of up to 6500 kg, concave and / or convex curvatures, offsets of panes in sliding elements and other challenges fires the creativity of our design engineers.

Our quality management system (according to DIN EN ISO 9001:2011) ensures an optimal surveillance, control and traceability of all business processes and therefore the safety of our clients.

Vacuum lifting technology from Wirth is in more than 40 countries successfully in operation.
