Packline Materials Handling, UK, announced a fully motorized version of its vertical spindle for lifting and handling rolls of film, foil, paper and packaging materials.

Constructed mainly from stainless steel, this roll handling attachment is suitable for the food processing industry.

The vertical spindle is fully motorized, and provides power for both the roll gripping and release as well as the roll rotation to and from the vertical to horizontal orientations. The control of these motors is made via a handheld “pendant” control for easy operation and precise control.

The rolls of film or foil 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 and transport rolls with complete safety.

The attachment was redesigned to provide greater load capacity, strength, durability, improved wear resistance and enhanced ease of use.
