The roll handling solution with bespoke lifting attachment is a great option for any business wishing to improve or eliminate any lifting and handling issues they are experiencing
(PRWEB) September 15, 2014
The new roll lifting attachment with a ‘cut-out’ section, from Packline Materials Handling and Ultrasource LLC, incorporates the standard single spindle design but with a cut-out section through the horizontal to allow for any fixtures or fittings on the roll itself or the processing machinery to be unaffected.
This lifting solution enables the operator to lift the roll via its core without causing damage to the roll or machinery. Constructed mainly from stainless steel, this roll handling solution is ideal for clean room environments, such as those found in food and drinks processing industries, and pharmaceutical industries.
This bespoke roll handling attachment is designed to transport rolls of film or foil to a racking system where the rolls are supported to small booms. The cut-out section on the spindle attachment allows the lifting attachment to support the central core of the roll, but clears the support boom.
The central carriage of the lifting equipment is fitted with a ‘proximity switch’ to precisely lift the roll to the exact height specified by the operator. Full movement of the attachment can still be achieved by pressing the override button when the pre-specified height is not required.
The top of the ‘cut-out’ sections on the roll handling attachment are fitted with ‘Delrin’ strips which protect the core of the roll from slicing or cutting.
Safe Working Load: 187.4lbs (85kg)
Attachment Mass: 20.3lbs (9.2kg)
Maximum Reel Length: 29.5” (750mm)
