New to Packline, the 'Horizon’ glass handling truck or trolley is now available with the 'auto-drive' feature. This glass lifter, with auto-drive, will lift and tilt glass to the horizontal and will allow one operator to lift glass or an IGU (insulated glass unit) from rack or truck, then index the glass to the horizontal and slowly and precisely lower the glass onto a table or frame.
The ‘Horizon’ auto-drive glass handling truck or trolley is a glass lifter designed for in-shop use to assist glass workers and glaziers to unload, rotate, transport and lay large sheets of glass flat onto a cutting table or tempering line. This glass lifter will lift and tilt glass to the horizontal. It will allow one operator to lift glass or an IGU (insulated glass unit) from rack or truck, then index the glass to the horizontal and slowly and precisely lower the glass onto a table or frame.
This glass handling truck has a lifting capacity of 300kg / 660lb.
The ‘Horizon’ auto-drive has a 12 volt battery powered vacuum pump and 2 hydraulic rams.
The ‘Horizon’ glass lifter allows one or two operators to handle the glass, rather than four to six as previously required, and with greater safety.
This glass lifter is ideal for setting DGUs (double glazed units) into a window frame to create a perfect seal.
The glass handling truck uses a battery powered rear drive wheel. The lifter is also equipped with powered side shift, which allows for up to 200mm movement to the left and right by use of an actuator.
