|Cup Lifters (Dual and Quad Cup)|
Do you cringe when you think about trying to "free" a finished panel from its mold? Many manufacturers have had the unsettling experience of prying or lifting a heavy, bulky panel far enough to squeeze their fingers underneath in order to raise the heavy piece from the mold.
Application: The cup lifter is designed to assist in the demolding of cast products. Utilizing pneumatic suction cups the cup lifter used with a gantry or bridge crane, assists in reducing the effort required to demold cast products, such as panels and tubs.
The process of demolding large, heavy panels from their molds can be effortlessly accomplished with these Panel Lifters. The unit’s four large suction cups are lowered to the panel and attached by switching on the unit’s two vacuum pumps. Following slight lifting to attach safety straps, the unit is activated to lift the panel up and away from the mold and over to a waiting conveyor for finishing.

The 4-Cup Lifter utlizes 4 large suction cups, and includes two vacuum pumps to produce a strong vacuum required to lift heavy cast parts. A push on the hoist control button lifts the panel just enough to secure safety straps which hold the panel in the event of accidental shut-off of the system while lifting is in progress. With the straps in place, the button is again pushed to lift the panel up and away from the mold and over to a waiting conveyor for finishing.
