Why vacuum lifting?

Benefits of vacuum lifting vs conventional methods

→  Eliminates the need for unsafe and time-consuming lifting mechanisms such as hooks, slings or chains

→  Less downtime between lifts

→  No need for employees to climb on trailers to attach slings or chains

→  Can lift material without displacing adjacent pieces

→  Creates a powerful positive engagement of the load (hooks, slings and chains can shift or come loose, endangering employees)

→  Reduces or eliminates need for tag line operators on the ground

→  Vacuum lifting systems are able to go where people should not be

→  Eliminates the need for costly cribbing or spacers for pipe or plate

→  Visual and audio alarms indicate unsafe lifting environments

Four Principal Compenents of Vacuum Lifting
