Packline Materials Handling Announce The Production Of Their New Stainless Lifting Equipment For Handling Rolls Of Film Or Foil In A Confined Space With Limited Access

Kansas City, MO (PRWEB) - New to Packline Materials Handling and Ultrasource LLC, the roll handling equipment and vertical spindle attachment with bespoke compact design was designed in response to a customer requirement in the food industry to handle rolls of film or foil in a confined space with limited and restricted access to the mandrel load point on the packaging machine. Constructed from stainless steel, this roll handling solution is suitable for clean room high care environments such as the food and drinks industries.

The packaging machines are inside glass enclosures restricting the access of the lifter itself to the load point. In addition, a low ceiling height and narrow aisles restrict access and manoeuvrability. Furthermore, the packaging machine load point mandrel is within a narrow, hard to reach access point.

The frame of the lifter was lowered, and the handlebars have been narrowed to ensure easy access and turning within the restricted space.

The vertical spindle attachment is equipped with a longer reach mechanism to achieve an easy reach into the narrow entry access to the mandrel load point. The vertical spindle encompasses a bespoke angled block to extend the reach of the attachment.

The vertical spindle attachment has a gearbox with manual handwheel for the rotation to and from the vertical to horizontal orientations. A further handwheel provides the reel gripping and release action.

The rolls are securely gripped by the core. This mechanism has a torque limiter fitted so that the clamping fingers do not over or under tighten in the core. This enables the operator to lift reels with complete confidence and safety.

This attachment is manufactured from stainless steel and anodised aluminium which makes it entirely suitable for the food and pharmaceutical industries and other hygienic applications.

Furthermore, it is backed up by a full bespoke design service so ensuring that the right solution can be made to suit most reels.

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 attachment is also available with powered roll rotation.

The lift capacity is 275 lbs (125kg), however, larger capacities and to suit greater roll widths, are available on request.

Lift capacity: 275lbs / 125kg.
Electric Lift.
Geared rotation (manual and powered rotation available).
Frame height: 75.8” / 1900mm (standard 80.7” / 2050mm).

The attachment has been designed to provide strength, durability as well as improved wear resistance and enhanced ease of use which provides a simple and safe action.
