Kansas City, MO (PRWEB) - New to Packline Materials Handling and Ultrasource LLC, this new fully motorized roll handling equipment with extended vertical spindle attachment is designed to handle very long rolls of film or foil. Constructed from stainless steel, this roll handling solution is suitable for the food, drinks and pharmaceutical industries.
The fully powered vertical spindle attachment was designed in response to a customer requirement in the food industry to handle very long, heavy reels. This fully motorised solution ensures that no operator manual handling is required.
The vertical spindle attachment has been extended from its standard length to securely grip, lift, and rotate the longer rolls. To ensure stability, the lifter’s centre of gravity has been adjusted to accommodate the longer rolls.
This lifter encompasses a fully powered vertical spindle lifting and rotating attachment. The attachment provides powered drives for both the roll gripping and release as well as the roll rotation to and from the vertical to horizontal orientations. These drives are operated via a hand-held ‘pendant’ control which provides precise and easy operation.
The rolls are securely gripped by the core. This mechanism is fitted with a torque limiter so that the clamping rollers do not over or under tighten onto the roll. This feature enables the operator to lift and transport rolls with complete confidence.
The roll handling attachment has been designed to suit the lifting and rotation of rolls of film and foil with a safe working load of 440lbs (200kg), although higher capacities may be available on request.
This roll handling equipment is entirely suitable for the food industry and other hygienic applications.
All Packline attachments are fully interchangeable and can be easily fitted or removed from any model of ‘Compac’ lifting machine that is fitted with the quick release system.
This stainless-steel roll lifting machine is suitable for use in the following industries:
- Drinks and Beverages
- FMCG (Fast Moving Consumer Goods)
The purpose-designed compact framework, positioning of handlebars and addition of an optional remote-control device provide improved manoeuvrability and ease of use for the operator.
The small footprint makes this roll handling equipment highly manoeuvrable and a natural choice for today’s narrow production lines and demanding lifting requirements.
