The vacuum lifting device OKTOPUS® GLASS-Jack GL-RN 400/600/800 is designed for handling large-sized glass panes and window elements up to maximum weight of 800 kg.
The crane eye of the device allows attaching the device to an existing hoist (provided by the customer). The suction frame can be rotated manually by 360° and swiveled by 90°. The operating and display elements are arranged ergonomically and allow comfortably positioning the load. The electrically operated vacuum pump is supplied with energy by a 24VDC battery system. Deviations from the nominal conditions are indicated by optical and acoustical warning devices. Even in the case of complete energy breakdown, vacuum remains in each suction pad for at least 5 minutes. In this way a secure lowering of the load can be ensured at all times.
The optional available lowering cylinder allows a smooth and jerkless lowering of the load. The blow-off function that is optional available as well eases and quickens the release of the suctioned glass panes.
By dismounting the crane arm the construction height of the OKTOPUS® GLASS-Jack GL-RN 400/600/800 is reduced to 140 mm only. This low construction height allows installing glass and façade elements in the usually only 300 mm wide clearances between building facade and scaffolding in front of it. Using the patented guide ring allows rotating the device together with the suctioned load by 360° although the crane arm is dismounted.
For manipulating curved glass panes with the OKTOPUS® GLASS-Jack GL-RN 400/600/800, we developed a special suction pad adapter. It allows manipulating convex or concave glass panes with a radius ≥ 1,000 mm. The total weight of the OKTOPUS® GLASS-Jack GL-RN 400/600/800 with mounted adapter for curved glass panes is 75 kg.
As the GLASS-Jack GL-RN 400/600/800 is equipped with a dual-circuit vacuum system it complies with the EU standard DIN EN 13155 for construction site use.
