Share Article

The new overhead low profile clamp attachment from Packline Materials Handling is designed for loading rolls of packaging material, film or cylindrical material into and out of containers, boxes or shrink wrapping machine mandrels. This Roll Handling Solution can also be used for lifting reels from a pallet to be lowered onto a vertical mandrel on a shrink wrapping machine.

The overhead low profile clamp attachment from Packline Materials Handling is designed for loading rolls of packaging material, film or cylindrical material into and out of containers, boxes or shrink wrapping machine mandrels. This roll handling solution can also be used for lifting reels from a pallet to be lowered onto a vertical mandrel on a shrink wrapping machine.

The clamp attachment has very low profile pads which only engage onto first 100mm of the reel, as the mandrel configuration on the shrink wrapping machine has very limited space around it.

Due to the low profile pads, this is also an ideal solution for lifting and lowering reels or other cylindrical items into boxes or containers.

The small size of the clamp attachment makes this solution suitable for use in constricted and confined spaces.

The reels of material are handled only from the top, allowing the reels to be lowered securely and with no interference from the attachment clamp pads themselves.

Reels up to a capacity of 100kg can be handled depending on requirements.

Bespoke handling solutions are available tailored to customer needs. The length and width of the clamp attachment pads can be varied to provide the most suitable solution.
