End Effectors

End Effectors are devices that are able to complete a wide variety of tasks that can be designed to mimic everything from fine motor skills to simple lifts of awkward shapes. They are attached to the end of an overhead lifting system (crane and hoist) allowing operators to complete tasks that would normally cause repetitive strain, unsafe lifting and fatigue.

With over 25 years of experience building custom End Effectors for multiple sectors (Manufacturing and Automotive, Food and Beverage, Pharmaceutical and Hospital, Warehouse and Retail to name a few), we can design, engineer, build, install, and service custom systems designed with your specific application in mind backed by our in-house team of Professional Engineers.

With our complete design, engineering, fabrication, and installation teams, we are able to rigorously test and refine our systems in order to create solutions for whatever material handling problem you are looking to solve.

Vacuum End Effectors

Vacuum End Effectors do much more than just lift objects up, they can also rotate and tilt products and are able to lift a number of different irregular or flat surfaces and materials. Projects completed by Liftsafe in the past include wood, steel, cardboard, aluminum, glass and ceramic. Objects include various car parts, electrical panels, sinks, patio doors and packaging among many others.

Gripper End Effectors

A variety of styles are available for Gripper End Effector Systems, such as the well-known two-finger grippers found in many industrial overhead lifting systems.

Due to the amount of solutions these systems can provide, there are very few standard products. To guarantee optimum performance, gripper designs are frequently customized. The manufacturing, automotive, food and beverage, pharmaceutical, hospital, warehouse, and retail industries all use these adaptable grippers for their various material handling needs.

Magnetic End Effectors

Magnetic End of Arm Tooling devices are the standard offering for industries handling large steel components, such as sheet metal, automotive parts, construction components, machine dies, and hydraulic cylinders.

With their magnetic qualities enabling safe and dependable lifting operations, these systems, which are built for efficiency, perform exceptionally well in industries such as automotive manufacturing where metal parts are widely used.
