Bohle has unveiled their new LiftMaster Quadro automatic vacuum lifting system, which has been developed to safely handle weights of up to 800kg.
The product of Bohle’s in-house research and development programme, this German-engineered automatic lifting system for glass, sets new standards for safety with a patented operational system and digital displays. It's built around a dual-circuit vacuum system which means the Liftmaster Quadro doubles up on safety. It is also fully tested to the European Standard for lifting systems EN13155.
“Bohle is recognised as a global leader in the manufacture and supply of safe manual lifting devices. Liftmaster Quadro draws down on this expertise”, explained Dave Broxton, Managing Director, Bohle.
“The product of a major R&D programme, it brings the same focus on rigorous testing and leading-edge innovation to automatic vacuum lifting equipment, building in additional safeguards in every aspect of its design and operation.”
This is represented in the Liftmaster Quadro’s design features. It offers a high degree of operational flexibility, comfortably coping with weights of up to 400kg with the standard unit or 800kg through the use of four extension arms. The system can also be swivelled through 90° and rotated through 360° or locked in any one of 12 positions.
This is made easier through the use of a continuous handrail which runs the entire circumference of the lifter, and which means that the Liftmaster Quadro can be controlled from any side or angle, comfortably and safely. Cables and hoses are enclosed inside the housing of the lifter so there is nothing to catch, while it also features audio visual warnings and alarms, including digital temperature display. This also shows battery level. An easy-release mechanism means that batteries can also be changed quickly and without the use of specialist tools - even holding the vacuum while the battery is replaced. Liftmaster Quadro is also highly mobile and can be packed down to fit on a dedicated transport frame, making handling and storage simple.
“You can see the thought that’s gone into this product. It’s been designed from the ground up as an evolution of lifting frame technology drawing on the expertise that Bohle has acquired in glass handling technologies and in particular, Veribor suction lifters.
“We’ve spent decades refining the design, the composition and the ergonomics of those products - and you can see it there for the first time in Liftmaster Quadro, as a next generation automatic vacuum lifter.”
