Application solutions for wood- and glass industry

Product recommendations for the wood and glass industry


Wood is one of the most important raw materials. People find its properties and beauty fascinating. And yet processing wood is not always straightforward - its surface is often rough and sensitive, while wooden sheets, boards and planks are heavy and bulky.

Glass, in contrast, is a delicate and sensitive material that requires extreme accuracy when being handled.


It is precisely this combination that makes help necessary for handling tasks. Vacuum provides an ideal basis for a variety of handling solutions when it comes to wood and glass processing.


Whether for automated or manual handling - vacuum allows a gentle grip without leaving scratches or nicks, making even heavy loads seem weightless.


FIPA offers a wide range of vacuum handling technology for wood and glass processing:


Our many years of experience in the wood and glass industry at FIPA helps us understand exactly which solutions you need.


Flat vacuum cups for textured surfaces - SFU-R

  • Optimal sealing of rough and uneven surfaces thanks to very fine sealing lips
  • Enhanced safety thanks to two-fold, internal safety sealing lip
  • Interlocking, clip-in retaining plate for quick and inexpensive replacement of the sealing lip
  • Diameter: 40 - 200 mm

Flat vacuum cups for porous products - SFU-RT

  • Separation of porous plate materials through simultaneous suction and punctual blow-off
  • of the product
  • Enhanced safety thanks to two-fold, internal safety sealing lip
  • Diameter: 160 mm

Oval vacuum suction plates for textured surfaces - SOPL-R

  • Leak-free gripping of many problematic product surfaces thanks to very flexible, thinly tapered sealing lip

  • Diameter: 25 - 160 mm

The high-quality and sturdy FIPALIFT tube lifter is available in three versions:

  • Unlike chain hoists or block and tackles, complicated slinging of the load is omitted when using tube lifters
  • Processes will be quicker and more efficient, employees will not be as tired from lifting heavy loads
  • Applications: e.g. Handling sacks, packages, crates, boxes and containers in shrink-wrap in warehousing and logistic

The new vakuum lifter FIPA Spider is available for loads up to 500 kg

  • Suitable for the horizontal handling of plates and panes
  • Easy to install by "plug & play"
  • Low weight of only 60 kg
  • Special versions are developed quickly and easily

Vacuum gripping systems for wood and glass

  • Handling of individual products or sites without gripper changing and regardless of workpiece positioning
  • Integrated vacuum generation or external compressor for use with particularly air-permeable workpieces
