Manipulator for handling large-sized flat and curved glass elements in difficult to access areas (facade openings, eaves)

Dual-circuit system

  • 2 independent vacuum circuits, each vacuum circuit with 2-fold safety and integrated vacuum reservoir
  • for construction site use according to DIN EN 13155


Handling flat glass panes and window elements in difficult to access areas (facade openings, eaves). The suction areas of the elements to be lifted must be air-impermeable, have to have an even and clean surface and must not be covered with protective foil.

The vacuum based load lifting attachment OKTOPUS® GL-M 1300 GGA is designed to handle large-sized glass panes and window elements up to a maximum weight of 1,300 kg. It is equipped with a dual-circuit vacuum system for construction site use according to DIN EN 13155. The crane eye of the device allows attaching the device to an existing hoist (provided by the customer).

The integrated movable counterweight balancer allows balancing the device with suctioned load. Due to the overhang reaching from the suction frame to the crane mounting, loads with a maximum weight of 1300 kg can be installed under eaves or overhangs with a depth of up to 3.2 m. The suction frame can hydraulically be rotated endless by 360°, tilted around the horizontal axis by ±20° and swiveled around the vertical axis by ±20°.

The operating and display elements are arranged ergonomically and allow comfortably positioning and moving the load. The electrically operated vacuum pump is supplied with energy by a 24 V DC battery system. Deviations from the nominal condition are indicated by optical and acoustical warning devices. Even in the case of complete energy breakdown, vacuum remains in each suction pad for at least 5 minutes. In this way a secure lowering of the load can be ensured at all times.
