Manipulator for handling large-sized flat and curved glass elements
- 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 and curved glass panes on construction sites (radius ≥ 0.5 m)
- at the crane hook
The vacuum based load lifting attachment OKTOPUS® GL-MGS 1200 is designed for handling glass panes and window elements up to a maximum weight of 1200 kg on construction sites.
The suction frame can be tilted hydraulically by 90° and rotated electrically driven by 360°. Furthermore, the load can be balanced with an integrated counterweight balancer. 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. To improve the releasing behavior of the pane the device is equipped with a blow-off function.
Deviations from the nominal condition are indicated by optical and acoustical warning devices. Even in the case of complete energy breakdown, vacuum remains for at least 5 minutes in each suction pad. In this way a secure lowering of the load can be ensured at all times.
Material to be handled
The OKTOPUS® GL-MGS 1200 is suitable for handling flat glass, curved glasses (concave or convex, bending radius ≥ 0.5 m) and window elements. 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 by protective foil.
