VACUUM TUBE LIFTERS operate on the presence of lower than ambient air pressure creating a powerful holding force against porous and non-porous surfaces.  The larger the contact area the greater the vacuum pressure and the higher the holding force.  Properly designed vacuum tools can be used to lift and hold many tons.  Flow is equally important especially when applied to porous surfaces such as cardboard or concrete pads.  

Vacuum lifters differ from vacuum grippers as they grip and lift in one system.

Vacuum systems are designed to insure that more than twice the gripping force is available versus the payload weight, a minimum 2 to 1 safety factor. The same vacuum flow is used for gripping as well as lifting. Thus, if the gripping force cannot be generated, such as on a cardboard box with a tear or hole in the box, the load cannot be lifted.

In the event of a power failure, a built in vacuum safety valve enables the vacuum lifter to automatically lower the payload to the floor in a safe and controlled manner.

Tube lifters can be used for lifting sacks, boxes, drums, print logs, paving slabs, boards, rolls, and many other products.  Some products can be lifted and rotated.

If your application is the lifting of a single product or multiple products at once there are tube lifters that can accommodate your application.
