Tube lifters FIPALIFT Basic

FIPALIFT Basic, the versatile addition to the tube lifter range


The FIPALIFT Basic tube lifter, with a lifting force of up to 55 kg, is characterised by a particularly high degree of modularity at reduced investment costs.


Its special safety valve also allows deployment of mechanical load-slinging equipment so that it is also possible to lift loads that do not have a suitable surface for suction attachment, for example open storage boxes or beverage crates.


The wide range of options and accessories fitted in the factory allow us to configure the Basic versions of the tube lifter to suit every need:


  • Automatic switch-off of the vacuum supply if the tube lifter is inactive for an extended period. The time to switch-off of the vacuum supply is adjustable.
  • Partial or complete execution of the metal components in non-rusting stainless steel for use in food production or in corrosive environments
  • The FIPALIFT Basic tube lifter is also available as a version with an ejector for vacuum supply. This generates the vacuum from compressed air, using the Venturi principle
  • The Basic can also have an adapter for using the FIPA gripper construction kit to permit realisation of individual special solutions in the simplest of ways. Benefit from our competence in gripper construction and adapt the unit to your problem without extensive expenditure
  • A wide and comprehensive range of accessories, such as vacuum cross-beams and various different vacuum cups make the FIPALIFT Basic tube lifter a very flexible and adaptable unit, even in its standard version

Elongated controller:


  • For handling large and awkward goods you can ask us to fit, as an option, an elongated controller
  • This is also available as a rigid version in lengths from 250 to 850 mm...

...and as flexible versions up to a length of 1,400 mm


Tube lifters FIPALIFT Basic standard versions

  • The standard versions have the standard controller, a lift height of 2.50 m and mounting suspension to an eye
  • We can offer a wide variety of factory-made options in addition to the standards. These can be seen below in the "Factory mounted options" table

+Lifting tube diamenter / Pump-combination

The bars in the diagram show the recommended load weights that can be handled by the individual tube lifter / pump combination. The recommendations are based on appropriate lifting speeds. A light load will be lifted faster than a heavy load. A non-porous load (NP), for example a metal sheet, will be lifted faster than a porous load (P), for example a carton.

Do not use tube lifter / pump combinations for loads heavier than recommended.


An example of how to use the diagram:

A tube lifter FIPALIFT Basic 120 with a pump DT.25 (tube lifter diameter 120 mm, pump size 25 m3/h) is recommended for lifting non-porous loads in the range 3 kg to 38 kg and for porous loads in the range from 3 kg to 25 kg. The combination with a larger tube lifter and a smaller pump is recommended for softer lifting. The selection is also highly dependent on the consistency of the load to be lifted, lifting trials may be required. Please contact our Technical Sales Department.
