Safe and ergonomic lifting of glass and windows

27 October 2016

Lifting for example large glass sheets and windows is both easy and safe with our ergonomic lifting solutions.

With TAWIGrip vacuum gripper large glass sheets, plexiglas and windows can be handled in a ergonomic and safe way. The vacuum gripper is equipped with a safe two-handed release function and visual control of the vacuum level. This makes it an ideal choice for lifting windows and sheets of glass in for example the construction industry.

Our vacuum lifters, VacuEasylift and VacuCobra, can also be used to handle glass in various forms. The tool used for lifting the glass is adjusted depending on the structure of the surface as well as the size, shape and weight of the glass. Windshields, glass sheets and different kinds of ceiling windows are only a few examples of the sort of goods that you can handle with our ergonomic vacuum lifters.

VacuCobra ergonomic cheese lifter

14 October 2016

This VacuCobra vacuum lifter has a silicone suction foot and quick coupling suitable for the food industry with though sanitary requirements. The VacuCobra is installed on a Lyftman aluminium crane system and is used by a Swedish food company for handling 10 kg cheese blocks.


Before the investment the staff had complained about back and shoulder strains from heavy manual lifting. With our lifting equipment this potentially harmful manual handling can be avoided and an ergonomic way of lifting can be achieved. The company has also invested in two additional TAWI lifts to handle heavier cheese blocks weighing up to 25 kg.

Good ergonomics doesn't just reduce the number of health problems, it can also increase productivity and contribute to lower costs for the company. At TAWI ergonomics is in focus when we develop new solutions for our customers and we manufacture products specifically designed to reduce the strain on backs, knees and shoulders.
