We have unlimited sizes and shapes available with custom end effectors for picking / pitching / rotating / placing, etc. Call Starquip to see imagineering at work in your workplace.


Air balancers have been in use in every industry for many years. We integrate an air balancer into a complete ergonomic system providing high quality, long-lasting, safe solutions to infinitely different applications. Discover how  "floating on air" can improve your work flow.


Starquip provides custom designed or modified standard carts and lift tables to solve many awkward material handling challenges. If you have multiple work areas with similar handling problems a Starquip customized cart or lift table may be the solution for you.


Starquip are distributors for world class manufacturers of hoists such as Demag and CM.  We offer full lines of electric wire and chain hoists, as well as air hoists.



Did you know that in Germany alone, Demag has made more than 1 jib crane for every single industrial worker? The simplest solution is often the best solution for horizontal motion within a work cell or across an entire bay. Starquip can integrate a jib or gantry crane into a complete solution to your material handling problem.


Magnetic Lifters address the need to pick up an awkward steel shape, or perhaps a lot of nuts/bolts? We provide rare earth or electromagnetic lifters that will safely grab your materials and allow for easy transport.


For ease of horizontal motion nothing beats the Demag KBK Crane system. With less than 1% rolling resistance, lateral motion efforts are kept to an absolute minimum. Our service centre with its huge inventory can provide you with parts or complete cranes immediately.

Starquip crane and lifting equipment include: Overhead Cranes, Ceiling Mount Cranes, Multiple Bridge Cranes, Enclosed Track, Track Systems, Rail Systems, Demag KBK, Gorbel, Free Standing Cranes, End Trucks, Electrified Track, Monorails, Aluminum Rail, Aluminum Track.



The spools can be handled by either the core with a pneumatic gripper or by gripping around the product with padded pneumatic clamping arms depending on the application.  Having the ability to free float allows for effortless and precise positioning of the spool onto unwinders or pallets.

Each lift assist is specifically designed to suit the product handled.  We will work with your team to ensure our design is well suited for your application.  Starquip’s main design criteria is to keep it simple, safe and easy to use.  We have several proven design techniques that are and have been functioning in the field for several years.

Vaculex AB develops and manufactures ergonomic lifting aids for loads up to 200 kg. Customer sectors include automotive, electronics, foods, chemical, pharmaceutical, global express, warehousing and logistics among others. Virtually anything can be lifted with the right gripping tool or suction foot. Learn more about our products to the left.

Vacuum Technology

An electric vacuum pump or ejector pump pumps out the air which creates the desired vacuum level. When a suction foot is placed (airtight) on an object, e.g. a cardboard box, the result is lower pressure. The difference in pressure makes the tube contract vertically and the object is lifted.
