Installing windows and patio doors in portable buildings has been made easier using this mobile vacuum lifting device. The totally self contained vacuum lifting frame allows window units and patio doors to be lifted using a manual winch. The load can be pushed by operators to the installation point without the need for overhead cranes. This makes the equipment especially useful in low headroom factories.

Three 8.6 tonne capacity vacuum lifting beams designed to lift hot lead slabs have just been delivered a s part of a 20m car battery recycling facility. The lead ingots measuring 2480mm x 1640mm are to be lifted out of moulding beds at up to 200°c. The picture shows one of the vacuum lifting beams being proof load tested to a 17.32 Tonnes proof load test.
The facility in north Wales is equipped with the technology required to process up to 70,000 tonnes of car batteries a year, and effectively dispose of potentially hazardous waste in the most environmentally friendly way.
