Packline Materials Handling, UK, developed a clamp attachment with motorized rotation, narrow rollers and extended reach, designed to load and unload rolls of film or foil from a pallet and load them into a wrapping machine.
The clamp is fitted with narrow rollers with long reach capability. This enables the machine to lift rolls from any area on a pallet, including the rear. It also allows the handling of rolls even if they are stored close together and deliver them to a wrapping machine that may have limited or restricted access.
The clamp attachment’s motorized rotation provides swift and easy handling of the rolls of film. This feature is controlled by a handheld “pendant”-type control, so the operator can observe the loading and unloading of the rolls for greater precision.
The raising and lowering of the clamp attachment is made by a battery powered mechanism operated by simple “up and down” buttons located ergonomically on the machines handle bars.
Ease of operation is further enhanced with a slow start feature that provides the operator with precise and accurate positioning when docking, loading and un-loading.
This stainless-steel roll lifting machine is suitable for use in the dairy, beverages, food and fast-moving consumer goods industries.
