In the daily work of lifting sheets and plates of metal, it often happens that you have to handle materials with different dimensions.
The technology of exclusion of the suction cups for sheet metal has been designed for a practical and quick exclusion of the arms by means of the taps positioned on the machine body. In this way, the operator can choose whether to bring the arms with the suction cups closer to re-enter the suction area of the sheet metal panels, or, if this is not enough to adapt the suction cup lifter to the size of the sheet metal, to exclude some arms to use only the chosen suction cups.
This simple but innovative technology makes it possible to adapt the suction cup to smaller plate sizes, allowing a single suction cup lifter to handle sheet metal sheets with different dimensions, even smaller than those initially thought.
Exclusion of the suction cups involves the reduction of the lift capacity.
