An Ergonomic Vacuum Lifter Improves Bag Lifting

22 November 2017

A TAWI vacuum lifter improves the process of bag lifting in the baggage handling area.

It's that time of year again for heavy traveling and when baggage flow rates will be high in baggage handling areas. This area plays a crucial role in keeping travelers happy and moving bags quickly and efficiently is crucial. As a result, the risk of injuries due to potentially hazardous manual lifting increases. Shoulder injuries from heavy bag lifting are the most common of injuries. But an ergonomic vacuum lifter will remove the strain of this laborious work, thus eliminating manual bag lifting and injuries.

Bag lifting is easy, safe and fast with the TAWI VacuCobra vacuum lifter.

Bag lifting is an area which has traditionally included lots of heavy lifting. With that in mind, TAWI designed the VacuCobra vacuum lifter to speed up frequent bag lifting and make quick work of handling a lot of baggage.

Bag Lifting Vacuum Lifter

The vacuum force of the VacuCobra vacuum lifter secures the suction cup, instantly attaching to and holding onto baggage weighing up to 110 lbs. This allows for total safety when bag lifting.

Bag lifting with a VacuCobra vacuum lifter is an ergonomic, one-handed operation.

The VacuCobra is a strong, compact, versatile piece of equipment that rotates to achieve the highest possible precision of bag lifting. It includes a bottom swivel and an angle adapter that insures full freedom of motion. A detachable quick-release function saves time when releasing baggage too. Also, the one-handed fingertip control on the vacuum lifter is easily adjusted to suit right and left-handed operators. Additionally, a lightweight aluminum jib crane provides a safe and smooth operation. Now that’s what we call Smart Lifting!

Gantry Cranes Save Time & Prevent Injuries

01 November 2017

TAWI USA is proud to be featured in the latest issue of MHI Solutions magazine. Our Vice President of Sales & Marketing, Mike Lee, explains the benefits of using a gantry crane system.

Products are moved around within a facility constantly. When workers lift and carry the products manually, they become susceptible to serious risk of injury. Additionally, if the items are exceptionally heavy, it may take multiple workers to perform these tasks. A safer and more economical way to move products around is by using a gantry crane system.

A gantry crane system consists of overhead metal tracks combined with lift assists, cranes and vacuum lifting systems. Gantry crane systems can lift heavy weights but are also popular for lifting as little as 20 pounds.

TAWI provides a gantry crane system consisting of an aluminum track that can be used to move lighter products. Employers would rather their workers not lift products of any weight, in order to prevent injury. With the lighter goods, TAWI provides gantry crane systems and lift assists that are extremely fast, lightweight and compact in size.

Gantry Cranes Reduce Injuries & Manpower

These gantry crane systems help reduce injuries by taking away the manual lifting part of the job and by making the gantry crane systems just as light and easy to use as possible. Workers go from a huge injury potential to almost an elimination of any risk.

TAWI lifts can make the job faster and the operator more productive, but the safety aspect is the driving force behind the investment for a gantry crane system. Gantry crane systems are easy to understand and operate and operators pick up the use of the lightweight gantry crane systems right away. Jobs that formerly took two workers can be done by one in less time than before.

Using systems to do both heavy lifting and repetitive light lifting saves workers time and potential pain.
