The drum handling clamp with tapered pads has been designed for lifting drums with tapered sides, which are more difficult to handle due to their non-symmetrical dimensions.
The tapered pads allow a secure grip aligned to the shape of the drum which, in turn, allows easy lifting and stable rotating of the drums.The fully motorized system facilitates lifting and rotating of the drum to a hopper in order to empty the drum contents, via a remote control unit used by the operator at a safe distance from the lifter.
Both the rotation and clamping mechanisms are fully motorized.
The clamp attachment has a torque unit fitted to ensure that the drums are not ‘over-clamped’ causing damage to the drum.
The rotation mechanism has ‘stops’ in place to prevent over-rotation of the drum.
Due to the wide range and variety of drums that are available, this tapered pad drum clamp attachment is a bespoke design which can be tailored and adapted to suit the specific needs of the customer.
