Vacuum lifters revamped
04 March 2021
The Timmer product portfolio has been further developed and is available in a new design as the timLIFT product family.
The timLIFT products are significantly more ergonomic and quieter in operation. Moreover, customers benefit from faster delivery times, thanks to the lean processes, and the extended service offering from project planning to aftersales. In addition, Timmer is providing additional capacity for onsite product demonstrations at the customers' facilities. timLIFT includes three model ranges: quickLIFT (one-hand operation up to 50kg), lightLIFT (two-hand operation up to 50kg) and heavyLIFT (two-hand operation up to 270kg).
"Our solutions are primarily lifting aids for employees that take the strain off the back, and thus they are an important part of a plant's occupational health and safety. They not only help reduce absences due to illness, they also play a crucial role in employee recruitment and employee loyalty given the growing awareness of the advantages of healthy working environments", says Timmer product specialist Timo Determann.
The restructuring of the hose lifters is a result of the continuous optimisation process. In this regard, further development, as well as long-term expansion of the entire vacuum lifting technology segment, are consistently in line with customer needs. To gain a precise picture of the requirements and desires in the plants, Timmer conducted an extensive market analysis and multiple customer surveys.
The timLIFT product family meets the desires for greater ergonomics and lower noise emissions through key optimisations in the product design.
“A lot of technological know-how and experience has been incorporated in the development, so that we can offer our customers products that are even more viable for the future,” says Determann. Customers are getting hose lifters that are not only convenient and easy to operate, they also reduce noise emissions by as much as 30%. Thanks to in-house production Timmer streamlines its process chains and is working even more closely with its suppliers. This considerably reduces delivery times. “Thanks to faster delivery of our hose lifters, we offer our customers the possibility of compensating for illness-related effects – for example when an employee can no longer execute lifting tasks on his own,” emphasises Determann.
