Product Announcement from Wood's Powr-Grip Co., Inc.
Wood's Powr-Grip® introduces a new hand-held vacuum cup for glass, stone and general materials handling, the N5450CS: This vacuum cup features a new concave, 9" [229 mm] vacuum pad paired with a durable metal handle. The new vacuum cup is distinctly different from the company's current concave model, the N6450, in that it has less curvature and edges with greater flexibility. The N5450CS vacuum cup is designed for materials with a 20" [508 mm] radius or greater, as compared to a 13" [330 mm] radius for the N6450.
The new vacuum cup's reduced curvature and flexible edges make the N5450CS applicable for both curved and flat surfaces that are smooth and nonporous, resulting in Wood's Powr-Grip's most versatile hand-held vacuum cup to date. When used to lift auto glass, auto body panels, polished columns, water tanks and other curved materials, less force is required to seal the vacuum pad, compared with the N6450. The N5450CS vacuum cup attaches to flat materials faster and easier than the N6450, as well: The new vacuum cup can be pressed onto a flat surface to remove most of the air volume. Then the vacuum pad pumps down quickly like a regular flat pad. Users are able to transfer easily between flat and curved surfaces, without the need for separate sets of hand cups.
Wood's Powr-Grip has manufactured vacuum lifting equipment for over forty years and its operations are located in Laurel, MT, U.S.A. Its vacuum lifting products are sold through a network of dealers and distributors, on both a national and an international basis.
