Vacuum tube lifter for starter batteries
3rd Quarter 2018, Pneumatic systems & components


The new Schmalz vacuum tube lifter, JumboFlex Battery, provides a complete solution for the ergonomic and safe handling of starter batteries. It ensures the reliable commissioning of starter batteries for system suppliers and distributors. Batteries that are commissioned edge-to-edge on a pallet are difficult to remove, especially for models without handles. These batteries, weighing up to almost 30 kilograms each, have to be manually removed and transferred because they cannot be mechanically gripped.

The JumboFlex Battery vacuum handling system grips, lifts and transports starter batteries of different shapes, sizes and weights without any physical exertion for the user. It consists of a lifting unit, operator handle and gripper. The gripper is the extraordinary feature of this system and is equipped with a special sealing gasket and suction resistances. This enables the system to retrieve batteries from above, regardless of whether they have different cover geometries and whether or not they have handles.

There is no need for tool conversion between different battery sizes and geometries. The ergonomic operator handle is designed to be operated with one hand and is easy to use. The lifting unit consists of a flexible hose that provides the required suction flow to hold the batteries securely and the system is completed with a responsive aluminum crane used as a jib crane or as an overhead crane system. In addition to commissioning starter batteries for system suppliers and distributors, the JumboFlex Battery ensures they are supplied to automotive manufacturers in the correct sequence.
