Piab's ergonomic Vaculex® vacuum lifter helps airports and ports become more efficient.
Taby, Sweden – Offering an uplifting solution for baggage and cargo handling at airports and ports, the ergonomic Vaculex® BaggageLift is designed to minimise injuries and to maximise safety. Using vacuum technology, the BaggageLift is able to transform heavy manual work into light user-friendly tasks.
So far used in some 500 installations and at over 60 airports around the globe, the Vaculex® BaggageLift offers efficiency and productivity gains in baggage handling systems, and for air cargo, Vaculex® TP offers significant savings for express parcel handling. Whether retrofitted in an existing infrastructure or included in the design for baggage or cargo handling in a new terminal, the Vaculex® lifters will provide helpful solutions. User-friendly and ergonomic, they make light of otherwise back-breaking lifting work.
Powered by an electric vacuum pump, the ergonomic Vaculex® lifters will lift parcels, boxes, out-of-gauge luggage, bags and suitcases, enabling handlers to manoeuvre and transfer these with ease and without fear of strain or repetitive injuries.
Customised training is provided in order to ensure that the lifting aid is used correctly and utilised to its full potential. In addition, the vacuum-operated lifting device can be installed in space-restricted areas and can be adapted for hard-to-reach places or for particularly challenging applications.
A complete range of spare parts and helpful accessories - such as a handy remote control, a noise reducing hood and an energy-saving system for automatic pump turn-off during inactivity - coupled with outstanding after-sales support and maintenance enable customers to rest assured that they will be working with ease before, during and after purchasing a Vaculex® lifting solution.
Established in 1951, Piab designs innovative vacuum solutions that improve the energy-efficiency, productivity, and working environments of vacuum users around the world. As a reliable partner to many of the world's largest manufacturers, Piab develops and manufactures a complete line of vacuum pumps, vacuum accessories, vacuum conveyors and suction cups for a variety of automated material handling and factory automation processes. Piab utilizes COAX®, a completely new dimension in vacuum technology, in many of its original products and solutions. COAX® cartridges are smaller, more energy efficient and more reliable than conventional ejectors, and can be integrated directly into machinery. This allows for the design of a flexible, modular vacuum system. In 2016, Piab completed two strategically important acquisitions, Kenos and Vaculex®. Piab is a worldwide organization with subsidiaries and distributors in almost 70 countries. Its headquarters are in Sweden.
