Anver Corp. has introduced the AT series vacuum lifter-tilter. The compact unit lets an operator pick up a thin-strip metal coil from the top surface, keeping the center hole unobstructed, and then manipulate and load it onto a mandrel. Featuring fully adjustable and lockable power tilting controlled by a joystick, the vacuum suction pads are configured to prevent telescoping.
The unit is powered by compressed air and uses rubber vacuum suction pads or other materials, depending on the coil dimensions and user requirements. Providing a 100 percent duty cycle, the lifter-tilter includes vacuum gauges and audiovisual safety alarms.
