Schmalz JumboFlex High-Stack vacuum tube lifter

The Schmalz JumboFlex High-Stack is a vacuum tube lifter that can be used to ergonomically stack goods with a maximum weight of 45 kg and up to a height of 2.55 m.

The lifter has a long, swivel-mounted operator handle. It provides scope to expand upward when lower-level storage space is limited and pallets for containers or trucks can be packed in such a way that the available volume is optimally utilised. Loads close to the ground can also be raised without risking injury to backs. The operator can grip goods with a minimum height of 30 cm while keeping the body upright.

The product has an ergonomic one-hand grip for controlling the tube lifter, which can be operated intuitively by both left-handed and right-handed operators. An additional handle makes it even easier to guide the tube lifter with the second hand — for example, when fine-tuning the height of the workpiece. The device can be infinitely adjusted and thus ergonomically designed for every operator.

The workpiece can only be released in a lowered position. The operator must push the button for lowering the load all the way down before a second, mechanical lever can be actuated. This lever releases the vacuum. This safety function prevents the workpiece from falling prematurely or unintentionally. In addition, the ventilation of the gripper takes place so fast that no additional effort is required to release the tube lifter from the workpiece.

The rotation unit of the operator handle can be rotated continuously, ensuring freedom of movement. This prevents the hose from twisting and gives the operator the flexibility to operate the device from all directions. Alternatively, the gripper can be fixed in 90° increments.
