ZASCHE handling introduces series of Carbon-fiber Material Handling Solutions

Innovative, Lightweight Range Promotes Greater Worker Acceptance

 ZASCHE handlinga provider of load handling technology, unveils its new series of carbon-fiber handling solutions. Engineered in close consultation with a renowned German university, the low-weight Carbon series offers high performance that does not compromise on safety. The product is available globally in the articulated arm and lifting axle formats.

This feature improves significant ergonomics on the shop floor, as it ensures that device dead weight is kept lower than a workpiece’s mass.

“Often, workers fall back into old ways when new equipment does not seem to improve working conditions,” commented Erwin Wagner, Managing Director, ZASCHE handling. “Our product development process considers the fact that manual workstations are subject to increasingly higher requirements of ergonomics and hand forces. At ZASCHE, we are dedicated to delivering solutions that meet customers’ felt needs, and the Carbon series attests to our commitment.”
