with results highlighted on completion. Once finished successfully, the machine then begins a countdown for when the next test is due. Should the device fail it will be automatically locked to prevent any accidents. HEGLA offers a comprehensive range of lifters from simple lift and set down to lift and rotate as well as lift-rotate-tilt, all of which can be used for a wide range of lifting capacity that will suit the application as well as large sheet lifters. Careful attention to design, layout and installation are all required for a successful project, which are all included as part of the HEGLA service. Paul Gibbs, Sales and Marketing HEGLA UK comments, “We offer complete and extremely safe solutions that avoid the risk of injury to employees in their working environment.” Please call Tim Johnson on 0330 124 5759 regarding vacuum lifters and cranes or Paul Gibbs on 07802 655214 to discuss the HEGLA portfolio.

Lifter Systems HEGLA offers two lifter types.

• Chain Hoist Systems, where lifters are hung from a chain hoist that is mounted onto the over- head structure. The application for this tends to be in restricted height applications but it enables the lifter to move up and down with ease. • Cylinder Lift Systems, require only a single operator and as the name suggests the up and down movement is controlled by a pneumatic cylinder that has a pre-determined stroke and lift height to a set down point. For glass processors, the choice will mostly be determined by application type and height availability. For next generation lifting HEGLA’S V-H 150 system takes glass handling technology to the next level as it lifts, places and manipulates glass on a production floor. The V-H suction device is user-friendly and has exceptionally high safety standards included for day-to-day use on cutting systems, furnaces, and laminating lines. The V-H 150 system is programmed to prompt operators to complete a function test every eight hours, or at a preferred custom-defined interval. Using a dedicated user interface, prompts are given to initiate each step of the process on screen
