Why use a vacuum lifting tube system ?

Vacuum lifting tube systems are perfectly suited for handling quickly and safely all types of boards, panels and doors. The vacuum is used for both lifting AND gripping operations, thus facilitating the control of the device and optimizing the speed and ease of the process. No need for many buttons, only a single control valve operated with the fingertips to pick up, lift, lower and release the load – simple, fast and safe!
