Wood’s Powr-Grip Offers Inteli-Grip Vacuum Lifters

Posted on 19 October 2016 by cradmin

inteli-gripHandling large sheets of glass, stone, metal and other materials can be challenging and inherently risky. As a result, work is continually being done to improve products by making them safer, more efficient and more responsive to the customers’ needs.

In anticipation of those needs, Wood’s Powr-Grip developed the next generation of vacuum lifters featuring the company’s proprietary Intelli-Grip™ technology. This state-of-the-art design reportedly monitors the lifter’s vacuum and power systems, adjusts resources as necessary, and notifies the operator when something requires special attention. It tells the operator what they need to know, when they need to know it, allowing them to focus on the material handling job and not the nuances of lifter operation.

Vacuum lifters with Intelli-Grip™ communicate critical information at a glance via a color LCD display screen. A flashing amber strobe light and audible alarm warn about conditions that may compromise safety. These vacuum lifters also host a variety of safety features that help prevent anyone from performing dangerous actions. On every lift Intelli-Grip™ tests for a good vacuum seal and checks for low power. If the battery is dangerously low, it also prevents the lifter from attaching to loads. Every time the vacuum lifter is powered up, Intelli-Grip™ automatically performs self-diagnostics, to make certain the lifter is ready-to-go. Unique service codes quickly identify potential problems, minimizing lifter down-time. Smart power management enables the lifter to work longer on a single charge.

Wood’s Powr-Grip To Offer Vacuum Pad with Replaceable Sealing Ring

Posted on 04 February 2014 by cradmin

woods powr grip vpfs10t vacuum padLate in the first quarter of 2014, Wood’s Powr-Grip will unveil the VPFS10T, a new vacuum pad featuring a replaceable foam-rubber sealing ring that provides a quick and cost-effective solution for replacing sealing rings damaged by rough surfaces, such as rough-cut stone slabs and other textured surfaces. The VPFS10T will offer an alternative to the HV11F, which uses a glued-on ring that is difficult and expensive to repair. The pliable rubber of the VPFS10T not only adheres easily to rough or textured surfaces, but also conforms to contoured surfaces. The flexible foam rubber ring slips quickly and easily into a channel between the rubber vacuum pad and its outer aluminum ring, and stays in position without the need for adhesives to hold it in place.

The VPFS10T will be available as a retrofit pad for any of the company’s below-the-hook lifter originally equipped with HV11 vacuum pads. Because of the the difference in HV11 and VPFS10T thickness, all pads on the vacuum lifter will need to be upgraded at the same time. The new vacuum pads with pliable foam rings are indispensable for lifting stone slabs or materials with surface texture, such as honed or flamed stone.
