Sheet Handling Equipment

Lifting sheets safely is often a challenging material handling problem as sheets are often bulky, heavy, and can be prone to damage. 

We offer a variety of vacuum sheet handling solutions designed in order to safely lift and move sheets made of a variety of materials.

The solutions we provide follow three distinct design principles: adaptability and flexibility, cost-effectiveness, and durability. Whether the solution you’re looking for is simply lifting, rotating or tilting, we have the products and expertise to get the job done.

Injury incident: Accident Report Detail

At approximately 8:50 a.m. on May 6, 2003, Employee #1 was working in the press brake department of a stove manufacturing facility operating a Darley Press Brake, Model Number EHP50 25/20, Serial Number 12508. He was using the press brake to bend a 10-pound piece of 18-gauge sheet metal that was 37 inches long by 18 inches wide with notches on all four sides. While standing in front of the press brake, he held the top of the sheet metal with his left hand and the right side with his right hand. He was wearing white fabric gloves with black rubber dots on them. As he was turning the piece over, his left hand slipped downward and fell sideways to the left. The piece of sheet metal hit his left forearm and made a 4-inch laceration. He was hospitalized for 3 days with his injuries.
