This Vertical Spindle Attachment was designed in response to a customer requirement in the packaging industry to handle very long and heavy rolls of film with lengths of up to 1000mm.

The extended vertical spindle attachment is designed to handle and transport longer rolls to the packaging machine. The spindle tube is longer than standard vertical spindle attachments to accommodate the 1000mm rolls. In addition, the centre point of rotation has been extended to allow for the increased length of the rolls. The centre of gravity of the rolls is moved forward to ensure stability whilst lifting and rotating the rolls.

The lifting attachment is mounted onto a heavy-duty mild steel painted stacker truck with manual lift, suitable for a warehouse environment.

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 heavy-duty 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.

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.
