The TAWI VL is a vacuum assisted, manual, lifting system for moving 30 kg/66 lbs. to 200 kg/440 lbs. loads. Bags, boxes, sacks, drums, flat stock, crates and barrels can easily be lifted and moved by one person.

The TAWI VL system consists of a vacuum pump, vacuum hose, lift tube, control unit and a suction foot or a gripping tool. Driven by an electric vacuum pump, the TAWI VL is available with different vacuum pumps, accessories and suction feet to handle a virtually infinite number of lifting conditions.

The TAWI VL is typically suspended from a bridge crane on an overhead track or from a jib crane with a rotating arm (not included).
