The Vertical Spindle attachment has been designed to suit the lifting and rotation of reels of film, foil, paper and various packaging materials which have a core diameter of 76mm (3”). 152mm (6”) Model also available on request.
This Vertical Spindle is fully motorised. This feature provides power for both the reel gripping and release as well as the reel rotation to and from the vertical to horizontal orientations. The control of these motors is made via a hand held ‘pendant’ control which provides easy operation and precise control.
The reels 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 reels with complete confidence and safety.
The attachment has been re-designed to provide greater load capacity, strength, durability as well as improved wear resistance and enhanced ease of use which provides a simple and safe action. It is entirely suitable for the food industry and other hygienic applications.
This particular Vertical Spindle has been mounted to a Heavy Duty mild steel painted Stacker Truck. Stainless Steel models are also available. The lifters can be ordered as fully manual units with a pump-up lift, with electric lift or with electric lift and powered drive giving you all the options you need to choose the efficient and cost-effective solution for your application.
The equipment 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 Logitrans heavy duty stacker truck that is fitted with the quick release system.
