The adjustable single spindle attachment with rollers and a side shift mechanism was designed in response to a customer enquiry in the chemicals industry to precisely access and lift heavy rolls across the width of a pallet. In addition, the customer required easy loading and unloading of the rolls onto and off the lifting machine.

A linear side-shift facility enables the operator to access the rolls across the width of the pallet.

The vertical spindle attachment is mounted to a second carriage with the linear side-shift, rather than fixed and central to the lifter as in a standard attachment. A mechanical geared rotation mechanism moves the boom attachment to the left or right.

A bespoke indexing facility enables the single spindle to shift sideways left or right to fixed positions. The left or right-side shift mechanism allows to operator to move the attachment to multiple positions, ensuring that the boom vertical spindle attachment and rolls are aligned for loading of the rolls on to the attachment, across the width of the pallet.

Rollers along the length of the vertical spindle attachment facilitate easy transfer of the heavy rolls onto and from the lifting machine.

The rollers assist the operator in loading and unloading the heavy rolls from the lifting attachment to the mandrel on the packaging machine. This reduces the requirement for operator manual handling.

The rolls are lifted by their core from the pallet in the horizontal position. The rolls are then transported horizontally to the processing machinery.

This Single Spindle is suitable for handling heavy reels of film, foil and paper.

The attachment has a maximum capacity of up to 300kg (661lbs), however higher rated models may be available on request.

The machine and its attachment are entirely suitable for the pharmaceutical and food industries and other hygienic applications.

The attachment is backed up by a full bespoke design service so ensuring that the right solution can be made to suit most lifting 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 attachment quick release system.
