Tube lifters FIPALIFT

The FIPALIFT is a high-quality and sturdy tube lifter available in three versions: FIPALIFT Expert, Smart and Basic. The tube lifters are vacuum-based lifters that use suction to hold and lift the goods without the need for physical exertion.

You will be quicker and more efficient, your employees will not be as tired from lifting heavy loads and they will remain motivated by using innovative technology.

Its sturdy construction renders it suitable for use in harsh environments such as carpenter’s workshops, sheet metal working operations, the chemical industry and in food production.

FIPALIFT tube lifter Smart, the specialist in logistics handling processes, is often used for rapid relocation of light to medium weight loads.

It is particularly suitable for palletising, picking of cartons and boxes and as such is extremely popular in the fields of warehousing and logistics Its ergonomic and attractively shaped controller allows for efficient and exertion-free work.
