Regardless of what they are made of – paper, plastic, fabric – or what they contain – flour, sand, pharmaceutical ingredients – almost all sacks are handled with ease with the help of Piab's ergonomic Vaculex® vacuum lifter. No more heavy, manual work such as lifting sacks for stacking on pallets, emptying into hoppers/feed stations, or feeding /loading/palletizing directly into or from a production line.
More than one third of all workplace injuries are caused by manual handling. Yet processing staff are still often expected to lift sacks weighing 25-50 kg [55-110 lbs], risking developing musculoskeletal disorders (MSDs) such as pain and injuries to spine/back and shoulders, and repetitive strain injuries. Piab's Vaculex® vacuum-lifting solution is ergonomic, flexible and reduces the load on your body by more than 80%. Thus, minimizing strain injuries, back pain and sick leave, while increasing efficiency and user happiness.
Offering ergonomic and safe working environments, the Vaculex® vacuum-operated lifters also allow for efficiency improvements, elevating the productivity of a plant by enabling a good flow in handling procedures, and guaranteeing high quality of products through damage limitation.
