The OKTOPUS® ERGO-Pick is a very economic, light weight and extra quick pneumatically operated vacuum lifter. It can be mounted to a single rail crane system, it does not need a chain hoist and its advantages are controlled load handling in a pneumatic lifting cylinder and immediate vacuum generation (central ejector) upon glass contact.

The series ERGO-Pick impresses with:

  • the application in lightweight crane systems or column/wall-mounted slewing cranes
  • the built-in pneumatic lifting cylinder and by that economization of costly and high-maintenance chain hoists
  • horizontal rotation by 360° in the carriage adapter
  • availability of manual and/or pneumatic positioning facilities (rotating, tilting the load)
  • a variety of suction frame versions for optimum adjustments to payloads and pane shapes
  • telescopic extension arms for tool-free adjustment of the suction bridge shape to the loads to be manipulated
  • the option of pneumatically operated devices to equip each suction pad with its own vacuum generation (ejectors) with non-return valve and vacuum gauge
  • the expansive safety facilities (depending on the equipment)
    • compressed-air or vacuum gauge
    • acoustical signaling devices to monitor energy supply or vacuum function
    • central or decentral arranged non-return valves
  • minimum requirements for maintenance and preventive service
  • the following options: blow-off function, automatic energy saving function, spring-mounted suction pads, decentralized vacuum generation, manually or pneumatically height-adjustable control panel

  • max. glass dimensions:depending on the shape of the suction frame and glass thickness, up to 2,600 x 3,210 mm recommended
    Working Load Limit:150 / 250 / 350 / 500 kg
    Vacuum frame:X-shaped or rectangular, with telescopic extensions
    Vacuum generation:ejectors with non-return valves, with / without energy saving function
    Power supply:compressed air 6-9 bar, quick couplings 1/4“,1/2“, 3/8“
    Color:RAL 9006, white aluminium vacuum frame RAL 2011, deep orange
    Lifting/Lowering:pneumatic stepless by telescopic lifting cylinder
    Rotating device:in the carriage adapter, manually 360°

The OKTOPUS® ERGO-Pick is the perfect device for optimizing production processes with low effort in flat glass manufacturing and processing companies or window production and for reducing costs significantly.
