The Vertical Spindle attachment with reel ejector is designed for the lifting, rotation and handling of heavy reels which have a large core diameter of 6 inches (152mm).

The attachment is equipped with a geared lever reel ejector or ‘push device’ to allow the operator to easily eject the reels from the Vertical Spindle Attachment using the geared lever system, removing the need for manual handling.

This mechanical geared reel ejection solution enables heavy reels to be ‘pushed’ from the mandrel to the processing or packaging machine, eliminating any requirement for operator manual handling.

The attachment has a gearbox with manual handwheel for the rotation of the reels to and from the vertical to horizontal orientations and a further handwheel provides the reel gripping and release actions. 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.

A third handwheel is used to push the reels from the attachment and transfer them smoothly onto the shaft of the packaging machine.
These features combine to make quick, easy and simple transfers with minimal operator effort which means that the reels can be handled surely and safely with minimum effort and complete confidence.

It is very easy to use which provides a simple and safe action and is entirely suitable for the pharmaceutical and food industries and similar hygienic applications.
Suitable for reels of film, foil, paper and various packaging materials, this attachment 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 attachment is also available with a powered reel rotation.

225kg maximum capacity. Larger capacities and to suit other types and styles of reels with their materials may be available on request.
