Vacuum handling of wood is a solution that allows huge increases in productivity and ergonomics! Nevertheless, this raw material is porous, which poses specific technical problems.
Aero Poro is a suction-cup yoke which is used for lifting wood panels and thus removes the risk of MSS (musculoskeletal disorders) and maximises operator productivity.
Handling of wood panels is a particular operation that includes many different parameters.
First of all, the porosity of the material makes it difficult to grasp by suction cup with creation of air vacuum. However, thanks to its special suction cups for handling, Aero Poro allows heavy loads to be lifted even if the surface is not smooth.
The other problem with lifting wood panels is the fragility of planks. Mechanical lifting tools can damage the planks when they leave the cutting machine. The Aero Poro suction-cup handler respects fragility of the loads and guarantees lifting without damaging the panels.
Aero Poro also offers excellent comfort of lifting, an ergonomic that eliminates the risk of MSD (musculoskeletal disorders), and independence for operators during lifting of wood panels up to 900 kg and 5.5m wide.
Aero Poro can be used in simple combination with a hoist, by grafting onto existing brackets (gallows or mobile cranes).
