Optimized safety for every lift

DAL FORNO vacuum lifters prioritize operator safety
with a focus on redundancy and clear warnings.

Here’s how:

Unwavering reliability: Regardless of weight and size,
DAL FORNO lifts meet the highest safety standards.

Extended backup time: Even in the unlikely event of a technical malfunction, our lifters are designed to maintain the necessary vacuum pressure for several minutes. This buffer provides ample time to safely lower or support the load.

Multiple safeguards: All our lifters feature an alarm system that activates in the event of a power failure, ensuring that the load remains secure. Operators can continuously monitor vacuum levels during operation. If the vacuum in the tank or pads drops below 80%, a clear visual and audible alarm immediately notifies the operator.

With DAL FORNO, you can focus on the job at hand,
knowing that your equipment is prioritizing
a safe working environment for everyone.

How It Works

Vacuum lifters use suction obtained either through an air pump
or by employing the Venturi tube principle. The steel construction features suction plates with airtight seals. A pre-vacuum tank provides greater suction even when air is lacking, and a vacuum gauge provides a visual means to monitor the amount of suction.

Energy Saving

Tight seals and high-quality materials minimize air leakage. This reduces power consumption and increases pump life.

Tailored Solutions

Don’t settle for a generic solution.
Let DAL FORNO create a custom vacuum lifter that will enhance your lifting operations.

Skilled Assistance

Maximize the performance of your vacuum lifters,
and increase efficiency with expert vacuum lifter support.

What You Get

  • Efficiency: Reduce cycle times and production costs associated with material handling.
  • Ease of Use: Operator can easily grip, lift and quickly position sheets.
  • Supported Materials: Effortless movement of sheets.
  • Safety: Unlike magnets, vacuum lifters don’t cause problems with non-magnetic materials.

We also have special flexible suction pads suitable for
lifting curved sheet metal and curved metal objects,
both concave and convex, such as pipes, coils,
support poles, vehicle body parts and more.

Safe. Modular. Efficient.

We recently worked with a sheet metal company to improve their sheet metal handling.
We provided them with a bespoke vacuum lifting and handling system
that enabled them to:

Reduce the time needed to move sheets by 50%

Reduce operator fatigue and work-related injuries by 35%

Increase productivity by 25%
