Lifting plastic crates is easy with the correct tool. At TAWI we manufacture special crate tools for vacuum lifters, suitable for all types of crates and containers.
These tools are designed to suit the dimensions of each crate. If the vacuum lifter is equipped with a quick coupling the operator can also change between different tools and thus use the same lift at several workstations. Shifting the crate from one place to another is often carried out with a forked tool. If you need the turning/tilting function added, a couple of suction cups will help keep a steady grip on the container while the contents are being emptied.
