Vacuworx has been getting people out of harm’s way, since 1999, by creating efficient material handling environments through innovative lifting solutions worldwide! Vacuworx designs, manufactures, tests and rates vacuum lifters.
Vacuum lifting Systems
Vacuworx Lifting Systems increase productivity and benefit your bottom line. Vacuum lifting allows faster load and unload cycles with less downtime than conventional methods since there are no slings and chains to hook and unhook, while the need for fewer ground personnel reduces the risk of accidents and lowers payroll and insurance costs. ROI is often realized in 6 months or less through reduced labor costs, bonus awards and the ability to take on more projects.
Portable Vacuum Lifting System
Offering the perfect solution for smaller lifting challenges on the job or in the shop. Engineered for both interior and exterior applications, these battery powered lifters can go to work anywhere! The PS 1 can lift up to 1,700 lb (0.8 tonne). The new PHD features a twin pump design, remote control and a lift capacity of 2,500 lb (1.13 tonne).
- Ideal for applications where no power source is available
- Designed to lift concrete, marble, granite, metal, steel, iron and thick plastic materials
Subcompact vacuum lifting System
The ultimate attachment — lightweight and extremely versatile, the system has been updated with an improved hydraulic systems and modular pads to work with more machines and for more applications! Featuring all-aluminum construction, the patent pending design runs off the host machine’s hydraulic system and can be easily attached in minutes to lift steel plate, saw-cut concrete, granite and marble slabs, landscape pavers and more! In addition, quick-connect hydraulic hoses make switching between attachments fast and easy so you can maximize productivity on the job. Perfect for floor, sidewalk, driveway, road and landscaping projects.
- Available with manual or wireless remote control.
- Designed to lift concrete, marble, granite, metal, steel, iron and landscape pavers.
Compact Modular Vacuum Lifting System
Take skid steer attachments to a new level! Easily adaptable to multiple applications and host machines, the CM 3 features rugged all-steel construction to handle materials up to 6,600 lb (3 tonne). The first vacuum lifting solution of its kind, the patent pending CM 3 is adaptable to a wide variety of material handling needs, allowing larger skid steers and track loaders to lift concrete slabs, steel plates and pipe with ease.
- Hydraulically driven vacuum pump operates using the auxiliary hydraulics from the host machine.
- Can accommodate single or double pad configurations to lift a variety of material weights and sizes.
AMC Series Vacuum lifting system
Provide the ultimate in material handling safety and versatility up to 13,200 lb (6 tonne). Suited for steel, poly or concrete pipe, as well as flat plate and concrete slabs, the AMC lifters can be mounted on a wide variety of host machines ranging from compact equipment to larger excavators and can even be adapted for truck crane applications. The lightweight, self-contained design is hydraulically powered to eliminate fuel costs, emissions and noise.
- Vacuum technology eliminates need for costly cribbing or spacers for pipe and plate.
- Integrated legs protect bottom of the pad(s) when not in use.
MC Series vacuum Lifting System
Light-weight and designed for use with compact host vehicles, suited for lower weight specifications and smaller material sizes. They are ideal for utility and in-plant applications and have lift capacities ranging from 6,600 to 11,000 lb (3-5 tonne). The MC 3 operates using a self-contained gas engine. The MC 5 has the same compact profile with a higher capacity diesel engine. The new MC 5H is powered by the hydraulic system of the host machine.
- 360º rotation provides precise placement of materials.
- Will not damage delicate materials and bonded coatings.
RC Series Vacuum Lifting System
Designed to handle materials from 22,000 to 55,000 lb (10-25 tonne) in conjunction with larger-capacity host carriers. RC Series lifters are best suited for large diameter energy and infrastructure projects, as well as material handling at port facilities, pipe mills, and storage yards. Fully self-contained units are powered by diesel engines and can be hooked up and ready to go in a matter of minutes; “H” models operate using the hydraulic system of the host machine to eliminate fuel costs, emissions and noise.
- Wireless remote operation is safer than hooks, slings or chains.
- Will not damage delicate materials and bonded coating.
Custom vacuum lifting system
Designed with your project in mind, a custom vacuum lifting system can help your teams work FASTER, SAFER and SMARTER on all your jobs.
