Inflatable lifting mechanism

Buitink Technology designs, develops and produces in-house custom inflatable lifting systems. In general, these lifting systems are used to meet industrial challenges for which no standard solution is possible.

For this project, we developed an inflatable bellows used as a lifting mechanism. Thanks to a tensile test, we can determine the friction as a function of the air pressure within the inflatable bellows.

A friction lifting mechanism

This lifting mechanism operates by friction between the contact surface of the bellows and the object to be lifted. It can lift, for example, hollow tubes. The lifting power is distributed evenly over the entire surface evenly, thus avoiding damage to the object. It can also lift objects without attachment points for lifting.
