The Stainless Cradle Attachment for handling rolls was designed in response to a customer enquiry in the food industry to lift rolls of film and foil via their mandrel and load onto a processing machine end feed, minimising operator manual handling.
The lifter incorporates a bespoke safety screen to protect the operator from any finger traps on the lifting mechanism, ensuring the lifting equipment is safe for the operator to use. The safety screen is mounted to the lifting carriage and raises and lowers with the carriage. The safety screen separates the operator from the lifting mechanism.
The mild steel painted lifter is coloured in a high visibility purple RAL code 4008, to ensure that the lifting equipment stands for safety purposes.
The cradle attachment is designed to handle rolls via the mandrel, enabling end-feed roll on of the rolls from the attachment to the processing machinery.
The fully powered, mechanical roll lifter is equipped with powered lifting and lowering functions.
The raising and lowering actions of the Cradle Attachment are made by a battery powered mechanism which is operated by simple ‘up and down’ buttons that are located ergonomically on the machine’s handlebars. Ease of operation is further enhanced with a slow start feature that provides the operator with precise and accurate positioning when docking, loading and un-loading.
This attachment is entirely suitable for the food industry and other hygienic applications and features FDA approved nitrile rubber rollers. The design offers impressive stability, strength, and durability and together these features combine to provide the transportation of the rolls with ease, confidence and compete safety.
The attachment is backed up by a full bespoke design service ensuring the right solution can be made to suit most applications and requirements.
All Packline attachments are fully interchangeable and can be easily fixed or removed from any model of ‘Compac’ lifting machine that is fitted with the quick release system.
This attachment has a maximum capacity of up to 250kg (551lbs) depending upon the machine model.
