A compressed-air powered, low-profile vacuum lifter that can be equipped with interchangeable pads for handling rough or smooth wood surfaces is available from Anver Corporation of Hudson, Massachusetts.
The Anver VPFL4 Series Compressed Air Vacuum Lifter only needs 8” of head room and can be equipped with interchangeable foam pads for handling rough wood or molded rubber pads for smooth surfaces. Featuring a slide control valve for rapid attach-and-release, it runs on 72-90 psi dry, clean shop air and includes an air filter, vacuum check valve, vacuum gauge, and ergonomic front handlebar.
Eliminating the use of straps or slings that can scratch and damage wood surfaces, the Anver VPFL4 Series Compressed Air Vacuum Lifter is available in capacities up to 1,500 lbs. Suitable for production, maintenance, and home workshop use, its compressed air operation eliminates the reliability problems associated with electric vacuum pumps in dirty environments.
The Anver VPFL4 Series Compressed Air Vacuum Lifter is priced from $695.00 up, depending upon vacuum suction pad attachment. Literature is available upon request.
