Packline Materials Handling Announce The New Clamp Attachment With Motorised Rotation For Handling Rolls Of Film And Foil

Kansas City, MO (PRWEB) - New to Packline Materials Handling is the clamp attachment designed to provide the swift and easy lifting, motorised rotation and handling of rolls of film, foil, paper and various other packaging materials. Constructed mainly from stainless steel, this roll handling solution is entirely suitable for the food industry and other hygienic applications and features FDA approved nitrile rubber rollers to grip the rolls.

The clamp is fitted with a handwheel which provides easy grip and release actions of the rolls which are secured by the external diameter. The mechanism is fitted with a torque limiter so that the gripping rollers do not over or under tighten onto the reel. This feature enables the operator to lift and transport rolls with complete confidence.

The clamp attachment also has motorised rotation which provides swift and easy handling. This feature is controlled by a hand held ‘pendant’ remote control which means that the operator can observe the loading and unloading of the rolls for greater precision.

The raising and lowering of the clamp attachment is achieved by a battery powered mechanism which is operated by simple ‘up’ and ‘down’ buttons that are 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 unloading.

This roll handling solution is entirely suitable for the food industry and other hygienic applications and features FDA approved nitrile rubber rollers.

The design offers impressive stability, strength and durability and together these features combine to provide the transportation of the rolls with ease, confidence, and complete safety.

This attachment has a maximum capacity of up to 225kg (496lbs) depending upon the machine model.
The attachment is backed up by a full bespoke design service ensuring the right solution can be made to suit most applications and requirements.

All Packline attachments are fully interchangeable and can be easily fixed or removed from any model of ‘Compac’ lifting machine that is fitted with the quick release system.

This stainless steel roll lifting machine is suitable for use in the following industries:

  • Food
  • Drinks and Beverages
  • Dairy
  • Pharmaceutical
  • Medical
  • Chemical
  • FMCG (Fast Moving Consumer Goods)

The purpose-designed compact framework, positioning of handlebars and addition of an optional remote-control device provide improved manoeuvrability and ease of use for the operator.

The small footprint makes this roll handling equipment highly manoeuvrable and a natural choice for today’s narrow production lines and demanding lifting requirements.
