The range of Righetti vacuum lifters for handling sheet metal is wide, for this reason we manage to offer standard machinery that meet the client’s needs on their own.
However, when this doesn’t happen, we can count on some accessories of the customer’s choice that allow the vacuum lifter to be customized according to their requirements.
Choosing to substitute a standard handlebar with a telescopic and/or tiltable one addresses the need of controlling the load in any situation and from any distance, even in the case of large sheet metal. This accessory ensures an optimal safety distance from the moving load and makes the operator’s workstation more ergonomic.
The suction pads that our vacuum lifters mount as standard are made of a specific mixture to adhere smoothly to sheet metal. In the case of sheets with a textured surface, such as embossed and almond-shaped sheets, it is necessary to use specific suction pads with a special gasket that adapts to the surface unevenness.
When ordering a battery-powered vacuum lifter, the client must decide whether he wants to manage suction and release either via a manual valve placed on the lifter’s handlebar, or via a radio remote control. The latter allows the management of the vacuum lifter at a distance, and it turns out to be extremely helpful when combined with the forklift frame, which is mentioned in the following paragraph.
The battery power supply makes it possible to use the suction lifter on a mobile basis and independently of any power source. In order to extend the range of lifting equipment to which the vacuum lifter can be hooked, we have developed a removable forklift frame. With this accessory, the battery-operated vacuum lifter can be used on all means equipped with forks.
