This Vertical Spindle Attachment has been designed to suit the lifting and handling of reels of film, foil, paper and various packaging materials, etc.
The attachment is specifically designed to have an extended reach which allows reels to be picked vertically to and from a pallet and then carried to a vertically loading packing machine feed.
The machine provides powered vertical lifting and lowering only. (i.e. no rotation of the reel).
For this application the long reach is also required as the legs of the lifting machine are not able to reach fully underneath the packing machine. The extended reach allows the reels to easily attain the correct loading position.
Wider and longer frame legs maintain stability and strength whilst lifting and transporting the reels at the fixed extended reach.
The attachment has a manual handwheel for the gripping and release action with the reels being securely gripped and supported by the core. This mechanism has a torque limiter fitted so that the attachments three gripping fingers do not over or under tighten. This enables the operator to lift and handle the reels with complete confidence and safety.
The attachment has been designed to provide high load capacity, strength, durability as well as being very easy to use which provides a simple and safe action. It is entirely suitable for the pharmaceutical and food industries and other hygienic applications.
Furthermore, it is backed up by a full bespoke design service so ensuring that the right solution can be made to suit most requirements.
All Packline attachments are fully interchangeable and can be easily fitted or removed from any model of Compac lifting machine that is fitted with the quick release system.
This lifter has a 60kg maximum capacity however, larger capacities and to suit greater reel widths, may be available on request.
