Due to the repetitive nature precast concrete products are extremely suited to be demoulded und turned by the aid of a vacuum lifter.
No matter the shape, dimensions or weight, we design a custom made lifting solution which perfectly fits your needs. It doesn’t matter if your product is flat, curved, U- or T-shaped. Contact us and ask for the possibilities for your product.
All our lifting solutions are customised to perfectly meet the required situation. Aerolift also designs lifting solutions which are used during construction. Such as this vacuum lifter which is used to mount tribune elements during stadium construction.
Even curved elements can be handled by vacuum technology, such as this tunnel segments. This particular vacuum lifter positions both tunnel segments and keystones in the tunnel wall.
Would you like to handle your concrete products fast and easily? Demoulding, lifting and turning in one movement without damage? Consider the concrete lifting solutions of Aerolift. From production to construction, we offer suitable handling solutions for your industry!
Aerolift designs custom made precast concrete lifting solutions for many situations. These can be used during production, storage, internal transport, transhipment and construction. Precast concrete elements are ideally suited for lifting by vacuum technology. Vacuum lifting technology offers unique benefits compared to other concrete lifting methods.
Thanks to the unique properties of vacuum handling, it is possible to demould, lift and turn precast concrete products all in one operation. Moreover, no embedded hoist facilities are required, and the surface is not deformed in any way. The load remains fully intact, without disassembling or destroying the mould. Also, due to the divided surface pressure of a suction pad, the curing time of the precast concrete before demoulding is considerably shortened. Instead of at least 24 hours, demoulding is possible after 8 till 10 hours! After removing the concrete product from the mould, you can turn the product and store it either horizontally or vertically. Regardless of its shape and weight.
Besides the advantages during demoulding, vacuum technology offers yet more advantages for concrete lifting solutions:
A concrete vacuum lifter is especially suited to processes of a repetitive nature. Think of the production, storage, transhipment and construction of floors, walls, staircases, sleepers, pipes, concrete piles, retaining walls, tunnel elements and tanks. The scope is endless. Besides precast concrete, Aerolift also designs vacuum lifting solutions for other industries.
Aerolift concrete vacuum lifters are frequently used in large-scale construction projects. Housing construction, industrial construction, tunnel construction and stadium building are some examples. A major advantage is that no embedded hoist facilities are required. With no risk of damaging the load, the concrete element can simply be placed into position. What’s more, you can use a vacuum lifter in different locations during the construction process.
Our team of experts is happy to give you more information about what kind of concrete lifting solution will fit your specific situation. Based on Aerolift’s highly advanced, specialist product knowledge, we can offer suitable solutions for any industrial application.
