Schmalz India offers VacuMaster Glass, a vacuum based system for handling large glass sheets outdoors. This ensures maximum safety when handling glass sheets and windows outdoors, weighing up to 600 kg. Glass sheets are often installed at great heights in building facades. A high degree of safety is required when doing so. The VacuMaster Glass is designed for use high above the ground and for the horizontal and vertical handling of loads in accordance with EN 13155-1/-2. It can be attached to the site crane, and loads are held by four or eight suction plates. The vacuum is switched on and off using a manual slide valve. Two backup vacuum circuit systems provide the necessary degree of safety. Each circuit has its own vacuum reservoir and manometer for displaying the vacuum. If the vacuum drops to a critical minimum level, an audible and visible warning signal is produced. If one circuit fails, the second circuit is able to handle the maximum load alone. When moving the vertically transported glass sheets into the final assembly position, the handling system must have the flexibility to move them as required. The VacuMaster Glass lets the users swivel workpieces by 90° and rotate them by 360°; both of these movements can be locked in place manually. This means that the glass sheets can be aligned perfectly and installed in the facade. Even glass sheets that are standing at an angle can be picked up easily. The Schmalz lifting unit can be adapted flexibly to the dimensions of various glass sheets. The unit's extension arms can simply be removed in order to reduce the number of suction plates to four. The maximum load is then up to 300 kg. Every cable is a troublesome security risk on a construction site. That is why the VacuMaster Glass is designed so that it does not need to be connected to the mains. It draws its power from a rechargeable and replaceable 12 V battery; an LED indicator displays the charge status.
