Smartlift launches innovative glass lifter which meets and exceeds glass lifting needs


Nykobing Mors June 28, 2022 - The Danish leading glass lift manufacturer, Smartlift, launches the brand-new SL 609 HLE RT at the Fensterbau Frontale exhibition in Nürnberg.

The new SL 609 HLE RT glass lifter builds on years of experience and know-how about lifting and mounting of glass, marble, granite, steel etc. It is a new model in the outdoor range and it features a wide range of new and improved functionalities:

Significantly increased actuator speed when lifting and tilting compared to similar machines and without compromising safety and precision.

The vacuum release is remotely controlled for increased efficiency and safety. You can inspect and approve the mounting and then release the vacuum in an instant.

Instead of an un-coordinated movement up-down and sideways, the SL 609 HLE RT features a straight movement e.g. following a building facade. This feature leads to more precision, faster positioning, and less damage while mounting.

With the SL 609 HLE RT it is possible to save a mounting position via the remote control, and then reload the same position for repeated mounting. We are happy to introduce this new time-saving functionality especially suitable for facade element mounting.

The maintenance-free gel battery pack supports uninterrupted work processes as it is robust and generally available as opposed to more specifically designed batteries. As all Smartlift products all functions are electrically powered and zero emission during operation.

Last - but not least - the SL 609 HLE RT comes with a built in Trackunit IoT device. This enables theft protection, GPS tracking and fleet management. The data insights from the Trackunit device also facilitates better and faster service via remote diagnostics.

"Together with the Smartlift R&D team headed by Morten Brix Rosengreen I am happy to introduce the new SL 609 HLE RT at a prominent industry event like Fensterbau Frontale. It is a giant leap forward for top-modern glazing robots setting new standards for efficiency, digitalization, and safety,” says Jacob Libach Nielsen CEO at Smartlift and adds “the sales team and I can't wait to talk to customers at Fensterbau Frontale and show how easy it is to operate".

Smartlift is exhibiting in hall 4A, booth no. 115.
