This bespoke vertical spindle attachment was designed in response to a customer requirement in the food industry to handle and load rolls of film onto packaging or processing machinery from every angle.

The rolls can be loaded from the left- or right-hand side as well as upwards without the need to re-manoeuvre the lifting machine itself.

This vertical spindle attachment can rotate through 360 degrees to facilitate loading onto the processing machine in any position. In addition, the vertical spindle has been ‘offset’ from the main lifting carriage to gain easy access to the processing machinery from any angle.

This special vertical spindle attachment is equipped with a stabilised carriage. A carriage adapter enables increased column support required due to the offset load, where the rolls are loaded to the right- or left-hand side. The adapter stabilises the column whilst handling the rolls in the offset position.

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 rolls are lifted and lowered by means of powered lift.

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 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.
