This Vertical Spindle Attachment was designed in response to a customer requirement in the pharmaceutical industry to handle a range of narrow reels with widths varying from 120mm up to 450mm.

The Vertical Spindle Attachment incorporates a ‘collar block’ to allow for the narrow reels, ensuring that they are securely held in position. The collar can easily be removed to handle larger reels.

In addition, serrated fingers on the vertical spindle attachment engage with the reel. The serrated fingers, together with the attachment collar, hold the reel centrally along the vertical spindle.

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 reels with complete confidence and safety.

This model has a gearbox with manual handwheel for the rotation to and from the vertical to horizontal orientations. A further handwheel provides the reel gripping and release action.

The attachment has been designed to provide strength, durability as well as improved wear resistance and enhanced ease of use which provides a simple and safe action.

This handling solution is suitable for the pharmaceutical industry 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 reels.

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.
