Vacuum lifting device with counterweight balancer for handling flat and zig-zag profiled glass elements with suction areas on different levels

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


The OKTOPUS® GL-M 1300 is suitable for handling flat and zig-zag profiled glass elements on construction sites. 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 is designed for handling flat and zig-zag profiled glass elements as well as window elements that are arranged at an angle to each other with a maximum weight of 1300 kg on construction sites. The integrated counterweight balancer that can hydraulically be tilted laterally allows balancing the load even with multidimensional eccentrically load pick up and allows by that a very precise positioning of the load. The suction frame can hydraulically be tilted by 90° and rotated by 360°. All functions are operated with a remote control (optional radio remote control). The necessary negative pressure in the suction pads is generated by a 24 V DC operated vacuum pump.

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.

The integrated blow-off function allows compressed-air supported and by that a quicker release of the suctioned load.
