Transport Systems In Ireland, and glass suction cups

Transport modes are the means of supporting the mobility of passengers and their baggage. These transport means are divided into three:

  • Land

  • Water

  • Air.

Vacuum lifting systems are becoming increasingly popular because they allow for rapid and fluid natural movement that no other device can provide. Although the operator controls each vacuum lifting device intuitively, the vacuum does all of the work. Perhaps these transportation systems could use the help of vacuum lifters. As we all know,  lifting heavy items is one of the leading causes of injury in the workplace. Overexertion and cumulative trauma were the most significant factors in these injuries. Bending, followed by twisting and turning, was the more commonly cited movement that caused back injuries. Strains and sprains from lifting loads improperly or carrying loads that are either too large or too heavy are common hazards associated with manually moving materials.

Road transportation

Road transportation includes cars, buses and whatever have you. Although they are mainly used to convey human passengers, and heavy lifting probably isn't part of the job description as a cab or bus driver, having a vacuum lifter such as GRABO at hand isn't a bad idea.

Air transportation

Some distributors provide airports with quick, ergonomic, and energy-efficient baggage handling equipment. With these baggage lifts, you reduce work-related injuries and wear and tear complications common when lifting manually. You create a more sustainable working situation with fewer sore backs and fewer sick leaves.

Water transportation

Cargo ships are a great example of water transportation. At ports and docks, a variety of lifting equipment is used to load and unload cargo. Gantry cranes, slewing cranes, forklift trucks, and other similar equipment can be used. Lifting operations that aren't well-planned can put people working nearby in danger.

Deck lifting equipment 

Several Vacuum lifting manufacturers not only produce traditional vacuum lifters for construction sites, but they also produce vacuum lifters for easy baggage lifting. Vaculex is on top of that list. The concept of using a vacuum baggage tube lift for baggage handling and lifting is a Swedish invention that was introduced at the end of the 1970s. Vaculex's founder collaborated with the inventor to develop tube vacuum baggage lifting technology for over ten years.

How it works

The Vaculex BaggageLift lifts and grips the bag using a vacuum. As a result, the equipment is very comfortable to use, and because there are no hooks involved, there are no handles or straps to locate. The vacuum baggage lifter is attached to an overhead rail system made of light aluminum. It allows for the coverage of any work area and the installation of multiple units in a single work area. This specially designed light rail system weighs only 1.3kg/m, requiring only light forces to move the bridge.

The GRABO Electric Vacuum Suction Cup is available in two formats – Standard and – the Plus model features an integrated pressure gauge. Each Lifter unit is supplied ready to use and comes with 2 x 14.8v Battery packs, a lifting strap, a replacement foam seal, battery charging lead and is supplied in one compact plastic carry case. If attached to other loading systems such as cranes, GRABO products could function as baggage handling equipment.

It is the GRABO Electric Vacuum Suction Cup Lifter, and this is what you need for material handling with slabs of stone or any other nonporous material. It comes from Nemo Power Tools, a staple in the business! Nemo tools have been raising the industry standard by developing and producing specialized material handling equipment. The GRABO incorporates multiple patents and technological innovations developed by engineers at Nemo Power Tools over several years. 

We believe that more industries, one way or the other, need the aid of vacuum lifters, most especially if it involves transporting heavy loads.


Adhesion to rough and smooth surfaces.

Traditional suction cups can only create a good seal with flat, clean,  and airtight surfaces such as glass. However, GRABO's unique seal allows the tool to adhere to rough, etched surfaces. The maximum surface roughness that GRABO can attach depends on the exact "Profile roughness parameters'' (The geometry of peaks and valleys in the material and generally limited to an amplitude of about 2.5mm ). This capability allows GRABO to create a seal with most patterned tiles, pavers, and construction materials. The GRABO suction cups are also capable of nonporous material like glass, making it your choice of lifters; It is the best of both worlds.

Keeping a seal against porous materials.

A porous surface is any surface that allows gas to flow through it. Many construction materials are porous to varying degrees. The most common porous construction materials are wood, concrete, rock, gypsum boards, and many ceramic tiles. Standard "suction cups" can not hold porous materials for more than a few seconds, even if the surface is flat enough to create a seal. A vacuum cavity on top of a porous material will quickly fail as air seeps through the material. GRABO overcomes this and allows secure adhesion to these materials by constantly pumping out a large volume of air at a rate more significant than the diffusion rate of air through the surface. Like we mentioned earlier, the best of both worlds.


Whether your preferred means of transportation are land, water, or air, you can trust GRABO to lift your goods safely onto that truck, airplane, or ship. The GRABO suction cups could serve as glass suction cups, wood, slab, any material you could think of.
