The clamping vertical spindle was designed in response to a customer requirement in the food industry to handle very narrow, large diameter rolls of pvc film that have a tendency for telescoping during handling.

Designed for the meat processing industry, this bespoke handling solution lifts and transports the rolls from the pallet to the labelling machine.

This vertical spindle attachment incorporates a single clamping arm with nitrile rubber pads to ensure that the roll is held securely in position.

The clamping vertical spindle attachment is suitable for very narrow rolls (120mm / 4.72”) with large diameters (1250mm / 49.2”).

This lifter is ideal for confined spaces and narrow production lines with a limited area for maneuvering.

In addition to the clamping mechanism, the rolls 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 the rolls with complete confidence and safety.

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

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, drinks, pharmaceutical and packaging industries.

Furthermore, it is backed up by a full bespoke design service so ensuring that the right solution can be made to suit most rolls.

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.
