Product Portfolio
  • Manipulators

  • Zasche is one of the top suppliers of handling equipment and manipulators.

    Zasche develops, designs, produces and sells sophisticated manipulators for manual handling of small loads. 
      • Z-Lift

      • Pneumatic lifting axes for determined linear vertical movements

        Zasche Z-Lift is a pneumatically powered lifting axis. Owing to its design, it provides rigid, offset load guidance in particular for joining tasks in the vertical axis. Z-Lift units can be used to guide loads easily and safely, since movements of the hand are transferred direct to the load.

        Thanks to their aluminium profile sections, Z-Lift units feature particularly low masses and offer light operation. Low-maintenance linear guidance systems with re-circulating ball bearings are used, which require only low manual forces for the lifting motion.

        The guide system is a hardened and ground steel guide of machine tool quality. The lifting motion is driven by a light-running pneumatic cylinder.

        The Z-Lift is available in two sizes:
        • Z-L 6:
          Load capacity up to 160 kg and moments up to 600 Nm
        • Z-L 12:
          Load capacity up to 300 kg and moments up to 1,200 Nm
      • Z-Arm

      • Pneumatic parallelogram manipulators in many different variants

        The Zasche Z-Arm is a pneumatic parallelogram manipulator. It features particularly light operation and requires only low manual forces for moving the loads. Owing to its design, it ensures loads are handled in a permanently stable position.

        It is available in three sizes with load capacities of up to 300 kg and an outreach of up to 3,500 mm. The smallest range features a unit that has been optimised in terms of size and dead weight and is particularly suitable for application in restricted space or on assembly lines.

        Z-Arm units can be used in the following combinations:
        • mounted on a pillar
        • as suspended travelling units
        • as suspended stationary units
      • Rope balancer

      • Pneumatic balancing with the rope balancer for fast repositioning of loads

        The rope balancer is a pneumatically powered hoist unit. Thanks to the low manual force required for the horizontal movement, these units are the optimum solution for careful load balancing and positioning. In particular complicated positioning and assembly tasks can be performed easily and safely with this unit. Rope balancers make it possible to reposition loads quickly in short cycles.

        There are two different basic units:

        D-BP 110
        Load capacity 100 kg (at 6 bar)
      • SpeedHoist

      • The fast electric lifting device, when no compressed air is available

        The SpeedHoist electric rope winch is specially designed for fast load handling applications with loads weighing up to 160 kg.

        It is used when it is not necessary to balance the load or no compressed air is available.
      • Manulift

      • Manulift units operate on the same principle as electric chain hoists. They feature an integrated quick-change connector for load handling modules.
        The control handle is designed so that it is suited for guiding loads at the same time. Your second hand thus remains free.

        The frequency-controlled version of the Manulift features an integrated inverter for infinitely variable control of the lifting and lowering speed.
        Loads weighing up to max. 250 kg can be lifted using Manulift units.
      • Slewing jib crane

      • The proven and inexpensive starter system

        Pillar and wall-mounted jib cranes are used together with rope balancers or chain hoists for very simple lifting operations. They are fitted with jibs made of special cold-rolled profile sections featuring a relatively low dead weight in relation to their outreach and SWL.

        Wall-mounted slewing cranes do not require any floor space, pillar-mounted slewing cranes can be mounted anywhere.
      • Pivot arm KSL medium/ light

      • The small pivot arm. Light, fast and flexible

        Pivot arms type KSL-medium and KSL-light are combined with Demag rope balancers or Demag SpeedHoists which are fitted above the pillar. Therefore, they offer the operator highly convenient, smooth and flexible load handling, as only the relatively low dead weight of the arm has to be moved.

        They are available with load capacities of up to 160 kg and, depending on the design, an outreach of up to 5,000 mm.
      • Pivot arm KSL

      • The proven pillar-mounted crane with ergonomic pivot arm

        Rigid load lifting modules, such as Z-Lift pneumatic lifting axes or electric telescopic lifting devices type TR/TV can also be fitted to KSL pivot arms. This combination is a particularly cost-effective variant for rigid load handling.
      • Pivot arm Carbon

      • set-up, connect, ready

        KSL-Carbon pivot arms are either fitted with pneumatic rope balancers or with electric rope winches. These units are mounted above the pillar. They therefore offer the worker highly convenient handling, as only the extremely low mass of the arm has to be moved.

        They are available with load capacities of up to 115 kg and, depending on the design, an outreach of up to 3,800 mm.
      • Vacuum Tube Lifter

      • Inexpensive Handling with Vacuum

        Vacuum tube lifters are particularly suitable for lifting and moving airtight and porous loads such as, for example, cartons, sacks, barrels, glass panes, wooden and metal sheets and many other applications.
        They feature a load capacity of up to 300 kg.

        The load is exclusively gripped and lifted with one medium, i.e. vacuum. This vacuum is generated by means of an external vacuum blower. There is no need for chain or rope hoists or any other lifting appliance to grip and lift the load. Vacuum tube lifters are integrated in crane installations optimised for the respective application. However, they can also be easily integrated in existing crane installations. Workpieces can be handled in the horizontal direction or also be slewed through 90° by means of vacuum tube lifters. A modular system consisting of variable grippers and slewing units that offer versatile combination possibilities permits easy adaptation of the unit to special requirements.

        Special solutions and adaptations can be provided at any time.
      • Telescoping units

      • The inexpensive alternative for high load capacities

        Telescopic lifting devices are lifted and lowered by inside or outside running chains of electrically driven Demag chain hoists. They are available with two different design principles. Either with square masts as square section telescoping units (TV) or with round masts as round section telescoping units (TR). Both variants are available with single telescoping sections as well as double telescoping sections.

        Telescoping units are particularly suitable for handling heavy workpieces up to 1,000 kg and they can take up large moments of up to 1,500 Nm. Depending on the design, strokes of up to max. 2,000 mm are possible.

        They can either be fitted in a Demag KBK rail system or on a KSL pivot arm with pillar mounted on the floor.
        They can also be used in low buildings with double telescoping sections.
      • Floor-running handling devices

      • The flexible alternative to a column

        Floor-running equipment is a special type of manual handling equipment.

        These devices are used in particular for applications in which cycle times are not critical for the handling tasks or when it is not wanted or possible to attach a manipulator on the ground or on the ceiling. Floor-running equipment offer a particularly inexpensive variant of manipulators, and are easily operated owing to their simple and robust design. Operation is possible in purely mechanical, electrical (re-chargeable battery), hydraulic or pneumatic mode. A further benefit of this type of equipment is that a floor-running solution can be operated independently of a special mounting location. It must be taken into consideration that these manipulators only permit relatively short vertical lifting movements, their possible outreach is limited if it is not possible to move under the load and that the ground characteristics (e.g. flatness, continuity) must fulfil specific requirements.
      • KBK crane

      • To serve large working areas

        Depending on the requirements of the application, either KBK (steel) or KBK Aluline (aluminium) rail systems are used.
      • Load orientation

      • Whenever the load must be turned or slewed

        Depending on the application, load orientation modules can be combined so that loads can be moved and turned on several levels and in many directions. In addition to power-driven load orientation modules, we also offer manual slewing and turning units.

        We offer the following load orientation modules:
        • slewing units, electrically or pneumatically
          powered, with a slewing range up to 180°
        • turning units, electrically or pneumatically
          powered, with a turning range up to 360°
      • Load handling

      • Taking a grab

        As standard, we offer the following variants of load handling modules:

        - Mechanical load handling modules
        - Pneumatic load handling modules
        - Vacuum load handling modules
        - Magnets
        - Special designs, specifically adapted to your workpiece
      • Travel drives

      • To supplement your handling system

        Electric or pneumatic travel drives for the crane bridge and/or crab frame travel motions are an advantage when handling larger loads (e.g. from 500 kg) or in the case of short cycle times.

        Specially developed for handling applications, RF 100 drives can be used for KBK II and KBK II-L profile sections and for KBK Aluline 120 and 180 aluminium profile sections.

        The advantage of the disengaging travel drive version is that the handling device can also be smoothly positioned by hand, if necessary.
      • Control systems

      • The appropriate standard control system for every application

        Our control systems are designed to match the equipment and the task to be performed by the handling system.

        Comprehensive quality tests and function tests throughout
        the manufacturing process guarantee
        maximum operating safety and reliability.
        The components used comply with the latest DIN and VDE regulations. Controls can be combined with individual pneumatic load lifting module configurations.

        Therefore, they can be used with Zasche Z-Arm units as well as Zasche-Z-Lift units and rope balancers.
