Tube lifters FIPALIFT Smart

The smart solution for your logistics processes


The particularly ergonomic FIPALIFT Smart, with a lifting force of up to 65 kg, is very frequently used for repositioning and picking of packages and boxes. However, the application range extends to cover all internal logistics processes.


The operator-friendly controller makes light work of rapid and smooth working.

The Smart is easily applied to any side and lifts the object. For precise placement, the lifting unit or the load can be easily turned by 360°.


Adapting for right-hand and left-hand use is easy:

Remove the trigger and reinsert it on the side appropriate for the user.


A wide range of options and accessories fitted in the factory allow us to configure the Basic versions to suit your need:


  • Vacuum supply switches off automatically after an extended period of non-use. The time to switch-off of the vacuum pump is adjustable.
  • Partial or complete execution of the metal parts in non-rusting stainless steel for use in food production or in corrosive environments
  • Access to the full range of accessories for the FIPALIFT Basic by using the Basic-Smart adapter
  • We have bellows vacuum cups made from silicone with stainless steel plates in our range for systems in direct contact with food products, and these comply with Regulation EU1935/2004 and the FDA

varioflex-bellows-suction-cups-fipalift-500x250

FIPALIFT meets Varioflex®. For our Smart we have extended the well-known Varioflex® bellows vacuum cups by two new sizes, Ø 110 mm and Ø 150 mm.

The cups, with two hardness zones, 30° Shore A at the sealing lip and 60° Shore A at the bellows body, have already been tried and tested over a long period in different sizes in the packaging industry. The low-wear PUR is particularly well suited for abrasive surfaces, such as cardboard and wood. The very soft and smooth sealing lip ensures secure handling, even if there are minor unevenness on the surface.

stroke-guide-roller-fipalift-500x250

The specially designed guide roller, for the tube lifter diameter 100 mm, allows the Smart to be used in particularly low headroom situations, as the required lifting movement is partially deflected to the side. This reduces the minimum headroom required.

Smart-Basic adapter
  • The standard versions have the standard control handle, a stroke of 2.50 m and a suspension with eyelet
  • We offer a wide variety of factory-made options in addition to the standards. These can be seen below in the ”Factory mounted options” table.
  • The required vacuum supply is not included in the scope of delivery
  • Please take note of the combination table ”Combination of lifting tube diameter and pump”. It can be used to establish the best combination for the lifting force that you need.
  • We would be pleased to help you with the design of your system

+Combination of lifting tube diameter and pump

The bars in the diagram show the recommended load weights that can be handled by the individual combination of lifting tube diameter and pump. 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 the combination of lifting tube diameter and pump for loads heavier than recommended.


An example of how to use the diagram:

A tube lifter FIPALIFT Smart 120 with a pump DT.60 (lifting tube diameter 120 mm, pump size 60 m3/h) is recommended for lifting non porous loads in the range from 10 kg to 65 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.


FIPA will carry out suction trials on your lifting equipment to determine the porosity of the material to be handled.
