Handling plastic doors
Manut-LM knows how to respond to the specific issues of companies, such as lifting and moving doors that have been film-wrapped to protect them from external shocks. Door handling is delicate because the surface is smooth and has no grip to help the operator grasp the doors, especially when they are wrapped in film. A conventional suction system would only suck in the protective film of the door.
To solve this problem, Manut-LM's design office has developed a lifting tube manipulator solution and added pins to the suction cups. This development enables the plastic film to be perforated without damaging the load, thus making it possible to achieve the air suction necessary for the handling of film-wrapped doors.
This lifting device enables the doors to be handled ergonomically while protecting them. The employee also gains in productivity and comfort.

Handling wooden doors
Handling wooden doors is a complex operation. The irregular surface of a door, the porous nature of some wood, its density and weight make it a source of loss of productivity and work-related illnesses.
A 40 kg door must be handled by two operators in non-ergonomic postures. Your operators therefore need tools that help them improve their productivity.
Manut-LM lifting tube handling assistance solutions help to avoid MSDs, reduce sick leave and work stoppages common in the woodwork sector. This tool will be all the more appreciated if it can help them avoid injury or back pain.
By manufacturing each made-to-measure device, Manut-LM adapts the gripping tools to the shapes of each door in order to offer products that perfectly meet the customers' needs.
Handling glass doors
Handling glass doors is dangerous and risky because the glass is fragile. They can break and must therefore be handled by several operators, resulting in a loss of productivity and a danger to employees.
Manut-LM has developed a handling solution to pick up and tilt doors or windows without endangering the operator and without damaging the glass.
The suction cup manipulator provides flexibility to the employee, who can then rotate, place and pick up the door easily. The suction cups have been designed to leave no trace of adhesive on the windows.

Options adapted to your needs
Manut-LM is committed to offering you solutions that meet your needs as much as possible and that combine ergonomics and productivity.
The MASTER Plus tilter option helps the operator to rotate the door around an 80° axis. A single operator can thus perform an action alone that would require several people without the tilter option.
The function of the automatic lift is to raise the manipulator automatically after releasing the load and enables the doors to be dropped off easily and safely on all types of surfaces. This option provides flexibility for the operator.
