Piab’s Vaculex® product range is the world-leader of lifting equipment based on vacuum technology. Since 2005, Vaculex® has supplied the airport industry with flexible, top-quality equipment from a Swedish design. Our ergonomic solutions have reduced the high number of injuries associated with manual handling of baggage. Today, there are over 500 Vaculex® BaggageLift units in more than 60 airports installed around the world, boasting thousands of satisfied users who work with the equipment every day. We not only provide you with a complete lifting solution, we also offer training and service after installation to make sure your Vaculex® BaggageLift works perfectly.


Baggage handling at airports is typically a combination of automated and manual handling, often in areas with low headroom and limited available working space. The automated baggage handling system takes checked baggage from the ticket counter, through security screening and delivers it sorted, by flight, to either a chute or conveyor where the baggage is then manually loaded into different kinds of ULDs (Unit Load Device) or open carts. This manual handling often results in repetitive strain injuries with decreasing work tempo and high sick absence.


Piab has developed and implemented Vaculex® solutions to solve the manual handling problems of baggage at airports. The results are ergonomic vacuum lifting solutions that potentially increase productivity and still minimize the risk for repetitive strain injuries. Piab’s Vaculex lifters allow unique and flexible solutions where ceiling height, narrow and confined areas with limited available working space may be an issue. Vaculex® patented low headroom equipment is one example of how Piab provides our users with innovative answers to challenging environments.
