Schmalz: Formula 1 Feeling For the VacuMaster Comfort
April 29, 2021
Schmalz has thoroughly revised the proven vacuum lifting device VacuMaster Comfort for loads up to max. 750 kg: With the optimised operating unit in ergonomic design and the newly designed control panel, the user can operate the vacuum lifting device comfortably and intuitively.
With the new control unit for its tried-and-tested vacuum lifting device VacuMaster Comfort, J. Schmalz GmbH shows that good, well thought-out design is not just for looks: the panel for controlling all device functions and the chain hoist movement looks like the sleek steering wheel from a Formula 1 racing car. The ergonomically shaped, wide operating handle reduces the effort required for handling and enables health-conscious work. Intuitive, user-friendly operation is ensured by the clear design of the control unit with its two rows of buttons: The user can clearly assign the individual functions using coloured buttons with symbols. This reduces the risk of operating errors.
The user activates the vacuum with the green control button and deactivates it by pressing the two red switches simultaneously. The grey travel sensor controls the up and down movement of the chain hoist in two speeds each. Depending on the version, the user of the lifting aid activates the swivelling (VacuMaster Comfort 90), turning (VacuMaster Comfort 180) or rotating (VacuMaster Window Comfort) of the load with the blue button. And if something should go wrong, Schmalz has installed an emergency stop switch centrally, which can be used to stop the up and down movement and, if necessary, the rotating, swivelling or turning movement.
The new control panel replaces the previous version and is available in three versions: as a rigid version, with continuously adjustable working height or as a version for adjusting the working height as well as tilting the control panel. With the optional adjustment and tilt function, it allows ergonomic handling even in high or low positions. The control panels are part of the extensive VacuMaster Comfort modular system in different lengths.
