How Does a Vacuum Lifter Work


Vacuum lifters are nothing to be overlooked, with many benefits for all sectors in the construction industry, including efficiency and reducing work-related injuries. They've recently started to become a lot more popular, and there's a good reason for it. 

What is a vacuum?

Thinking back to our school days now. A vacuum is a space in which there is no matter, or the pressure is so low that any particles in the space do not affect any processes. It's done by removing all the air from between two spaces, reducing the pressure between the two, which essentially makes them create a bond so strong that they stick together. Vacuum lifters utilise this process with suction pads to create a solid seal to attach and lift.

Traditional vacuum lifters:

Traditional (or manual) vacuum lifters create the vacuum through a lifting tube or manually pump the air out somehow. Although these work, many things make them unreliable. There's a chance that the suction could break or that the seal isn't strong enough, resulting in possible injury for the person carrying, as well as the possibility of a loss of income if an item breaks during a fall. 

A traditional vacuum can lift a good list of materials, including metal, glass, concrete, and plasterboard. 

Electric vacuum lifters:

Electric vacuum lifters work the same way as the traditional ones, but the vacuum is created by a  motor, rather than manually. This enables a constant pumping action to be maintained, making it work on many porous materials, as well as serving as a safety net ensuring maximum suction. The Grabo Pro has unique technology to ensure that after the complete seal has been created on the item you're lifting, the motor will turn itself off to conserve battery power but automatically turns itself back on when the pressure starts to drop. Small additions like this make the electric counterpart the overall better choice. 

The Grabo is also able to lift up to 170kg, covering a much broader range of materials, including both porous and non-porous materials, as well as riven slabs. The motor makes it possible to attach the vacuum onto uneven surfaces due to the extra power that the traditional ones lack. 

The Grabo:The Grabo is the world's first portable electric vacuum lifter and has taken the construction industry by storm, quickly becoming the most desirable tool to have on-site. Learn more about the Grabo and the Grabo Pro, and see how they can help your daily working life.
