I am proud to launch the new piLIFT® SMART on the global market

There are moments in life where you look back and are especially proud – you know – your first exam, your graduation and so on – not to mention accomplishments in your private life.

But if we stay a bit on the professional side – I have to say that I am extremely proud of launching the very first vacuum lifter of Industry 4.0 on the global market.

Vacuum lifters have been around for a while and have been a great help for people lifting heavy objects. Now we are taking the next step, to help people even further. The new piLIFT® SMART is able to adapt to different workloads instantly, it is also designed to be even more ergonomic for the user. At the same time, it will collect and log data, making process statistics and analyses immediately accessible to the user through a web platform log-in making life easier for everyone.

As ergonomics is at the heart of all Piab vacuum lifters, every aspect of piLIFT® SMART has been designed with ergonomics and natural movements in mind. From the shape of the handle (enabling right- and left-handed use), the hand guard and the possibility to grip from the side and to rotate objects, to the placement of variable speed controls and a minimized operating sound level, the design of piLIFT® SMART has been guided by ergonomics and the wellbeing of users.

I would love to hear back from you if you have had the chance to see piLIFT® SMART at our exhibitions or if you are interested to try out the very first vacuum lifter of industry 4.0.
