Good ergonomics is good economics
Repeated lifts do not have to be heavy to be both dangerous and costly. Most often, vacuum tube lifters lead to an increased work rate and better productivity. Costs for extended periods of sick leave are reduced and rehabilitation periods are avoided. Vaculex tube lifters minimize that type of problem and also reduce the risk of accidents that can injure the user as well as damage the goods.

Lift almost everything
With a vacuum tube lifter you can lift boxes, sacks, drums, sheet metal, computers, crates, barrels, TVs and much more – depending on equipment and accessories. The design consists of a pump, vacuum hose, lift tube, control unit and finally a suction foot or possibly a gripping tool which is adapted to your needs.

Very easy to use
A vacuum tube lifter uses vacuum to grab hold of and lift the load in a single action; the controls are very easy to use and the vacuum tube lifter gently follows your own body movements, as if the lifted object were weightless. With a bottom swivel or an angle adaptor you can rotate or turn the lifted object any way you like, for instance in assembly work.

Unique safety
Since the suction foot is always dimensioned in accordance with the vacuum lift tube, you don’t risk dropping lifted objects that are too heavy. If the weight is too much, the tube lift will simply not lift it. This reduces the risk of personal injury and damaged goods. If the vacuum pump should stop, the depression is retained so that the load can be lowered in a controlled manner.


For over 30 years, Gorbel has been an innovator and leader in ergonomic overhead lifting solutions. They have designed and manufactured a variety of rail technologies and lifting devices that have set the industry standard for quality, ease of use and return on investment.

With their innovative rail technology and years of experience with overhead solutions, they now offer complete solutions for the suspension of tools.

The cornerstone of Gorbel’s tool solutions is their patented enclosed track design, which is engineered for easy movement. The cold rolled steel track keeps dirt and dust from settling on the rolling surface, allowing for smoother, more consistent easy movement of trolleys and tools than with an I-Beam without cleaning or maintenance of the track.

The track also features a running flange with a 2-degree taper to keep the trolley centered. That allows easy, non-binding movement by the trolley, which also features matching 2-degree tapers on the wheels. That effortless movement translates into accessible tools that won’t interrupt work flow.
