The VPFL-4 air-powered, below-the-hook vacuum lifter, designed for lifting precision metal coils up to 4 ft. dia. from the skid to the winding machine, has been introduced by Anver Corp.
The lifter has an X frame with adjustable suction pads and spring suspensions to accommodate and grip precision metal coils without damage. Featuring a circular perimeter guard for added protection, the lifter provides continuous vacuum to the suction pads and has an adjustable handle with integrated controls.
The lifter is equipped with a VLS-8 vacuum leakage sensor that sets itself to the vacuum system’s peak vacuum level and displays it on an LCD in front of the operator. If a 10 percent vacuum loss or leakage occurs, the sensor sounds a loud horn and flashes a bright LED warning light.
