The range of Spider Lifters are traditionally hung from a hoist and swing jib. The Spider Lifter is then used to hold a load whilst it is lifted and lowered using a hoist. The Swing Jib allows the operator to move the item into place.
Typical items to handle in this way are large sheet materials such as metal, plastic, stone or glass.
The Spider Lift is also suitable for lifting and placing items during a production process usch as windscreens, panels, doors or turbine blades. The simplest of the solutions allows the operator to lift and lower an item vertically. The vacuum pads vary in size and number depending on the item beng handled.
The pads are set along adjustable booms allowing for different sized items to be handled with the same vacuum system. As part of a process an item may require tilting or rotating both of which can be carried out using variations of this standard Spider Lifter design.
The standard Spider Lifter requires a 230v single phase power supply however if tilting and/or rotating are required then a compressed air supply may also be needed.
