Vacuum lifting device for construction site use with hydraulic rotating and tilting function as well as electrically driven movable counterweight balancer

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 and window elements as well as long and narrow glass fins. The suction areas of the load 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 7000 DES So 435 R EA B24 P is designed for handling large-sized glass panes and window elements up to a maximum weight of 7,000 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 device is equipped with a suction frame for the installation of large-sized glass façade elements up to 7,000 kg and with a special suction frame for the installation of vertical glass fins up to 1,600 kg.

The suction frames can hydraulically be rotated endless by 360° and tilted by 90°. A counterweight balancer with electrically driven counterweights serves for balancing the load. 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.
