This Cradle Attachment was designed in response to a customer requirement in the food industry to handle a range of longer reels of film lying horizontally on a pallet and transfer the reels to a high load point on the processing machinery.
The cradle attachment has been extended to incorporate the wider rolls. The wider cradle attachment is designed to handle rolls from 388mm (15.2”) to 851mm (33.5”) width and 298mm (11.7”) diameter.
In addition, a taller lifter frame ensures that the rolls can be raised to an increased lift height of 2200mm (86.6”) to access a high load point on the packaging machine.
The wider cradle attachment picks up the long rolls and the taller lifter frame loads them onto the higher position on the packaging machine feed.
The cradle attachment lifts the reels horizontally from the pallet via the reel’s core, using a mandrel.
This model has electric powered lift and lower functions to lift the reels from the pallet, and then transfer to the processing machinery.
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 clean room 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.
