This reel handling equipment with reel retaining mechanism has been developed to ensure that the reel remains on the attachment whilst it is being manoeuvred between storage racking and machinery.
This Single Spindle attachment is used to handle heavy reels of film and paper.
The reels are lifted by their 150mm (6”) diameter core and a series of rollers allow the reels to slide easily onto and from the attachment.
A retractable reel retaining mechanism ensures that the reels remain safely on the attachment whilst the machine is being manoeuvred between the storage racking and machinery.
The raise and lowering actions are provided by simple up and down push button controls. These are located by the machines handlebars which allows the operator to observe the loading and unloading of the reels for greater precision.
All these features combine to provide the operator to lift, transport and handle reels with complete confidence and safety.
The machine and its attachment are entirely suitable for the pharmaceutical and food industries and other hygienic applications.
The attachment is backed up by a full bespoke design service so ensuring that the right solution can be made to suit most lifting 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 attachment quick release system.
