Millsom’s smart new JumboFlex gives industry a lift

Millsom Materials Handling has launched a new vacuum tube lifter to its impressive range of handling solutions.

The JumboFlex is manufactured by J. Schmalz GmbH, world leaders in vacuum technology and handling systems.

Millsoms is the representative for Schmalz in Australia and NZ.

Millsoms offers solutions for light objects with the vacuum tube lifter JumboHandy and now completes its range with the new JumboFlex system for fast and ergonomic handling of various loads weighing up to 35 kg.

The vacuum tube lifter JumboFlex offers maximum flexibility in a wide variety of applications.

The JumboFlex provides better productivity and efficiency and extensive freedom of movement in production, assembly and distribution.

It also delivers precise material handling without damage to goods.

As an added bonus, JumboFlex can be used in rooms with low ceilings where manual vacuum handling systems were previously unable to be used.

The JumboFlex can be mounted on crane systems, on wall or column-mounted slewing
cranes or on existing overhead cranes.

The ideal solution is the combination of the JumboFlex and an easy-running low friction crane system or one of the slewing cranes (mounted on a wall or a column).

The vacuum tube lifter is designed and equipped optimally for one-hand operation.

Depending on the requirements, the vacuum can be generated with an electric pump or with a multi-stage ejector powered by compressed-air.

The lifting tube has a diameter of 80mm or 100 mm, depending on the maximum load, and the lifting speed is between 50 and 60 m/min. The overall height of the JumboFlex is about 2500mm and the lifting height is 1500mm or 1800mm, depending on the model.

This means the JumboFlex can also be used in rooms with a ceiling height of only about 3000mm, depending on whether it is suspended from an overhead crane or a wall or column-mounted slewing crane.
