Wirth Oktopus glass lifter

Monday, 21 March, 2016 | Supplied by: Kennards Lift & Shift



The Oktopus from Wirth is a dual-vacuum industrial lifter designed to reduce safety hazards when installing heavy glass panels on buildings.

Until recently, 12 V vacuum lifters with single pumps were used to carry and place glass panels that can weigh hundreds of kilograms into window frames, relying on that one vacuum not to fail during the lift. The dual-vacuum glass lifter, however, features two independent vacuum circuits, ensuring a safety backup if one was ever to fail.

The compact product, which is available in a range of models that can carry loads weighing between 300 and 1000 kg, comes equipped with a crane arm for manual turning by 360° and an audio-visual low-vacuum alert. It is powered by a rechargeable, high-capacity battery system.
