Vacuum Lifters Slash Packaging Time of Boilers

May 18, 2016
A Cynergy Ergonomics vacuum lifter recently installed for a boiler manufacturer lifts and rotates boiler bodies to facilitate the final assembly and packaging in a faster, safer and more ergonomic fashion. The purpose-built vacuum lifter allows an operator to lift a variety of electric boilers, with weights to 200-pounds, and rotate them for palletizing and packaging. These material handling tasks are accomplished in just seconds, reducing the packaging and palletizing time by half. The vacuum cup tooling provides a firm grip on the boiler without marring or marking it. Prior to installing the Cynergy Ergonomics vacuum lifter, this process was completed by a multi-step manipulation process; now operators can move the boiler assemblies with virtually zero effort. Because of this, users have eliminated their recordable injuries and the inherent problems that surround an elevated risk process.
