The Tawi system for vacuum assisted lifting from Kockums Bulk Systems is used extensively for repetitive lifting and moving of objects from 5kg to 270kg.

For the past 25 years this system has serviced Australian industry for the lifting and relocation of bags, boxes, drums, and boards.

Other applications offer a challenge. By site testing and drawing on the experience of its Swedish principals, Kockums can devise appropriate solutions.

The handling of frozen meat is a prime example.

A special foot is able to initially pick up the carton containing the frozen meat from a pallet, place it on the opening table, then extract the frozen mass from within the carton and feed it onto a conveyor.
