This Cradle Attachment was designed in response to a customer requirement in the food industry to handle a range of reels lying horizontally on a pallet.

The suspended cradle attachment lifts the reels horizontally from the pallet via the reel’s core, using a mandrel. The reels can then be transferred onto a reel stand for storage purposes, or a packaging processing line.

The cradle attachment can be easily manually adjusted to lift a range of diameter reels. This is achieved by means of sliding suspended cradle arms, to incorporate larger or smaller reels depending on requirements.

This model has electric powered lift and lower functions to lift the reels from the pallet, and then transfer and lower onto the stand.

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 food and drinks 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.

• Lifting Capacity: 140kg / 308lbs (higher capacities available on request).
• Reel Diameters: adjustable to suit most diameters.
