The extra-long single spindle attachment with additional transfer rollers was designed in response to a customer enquiry in the labelling and packaging industry to lift rolls of labels in the horizontal and transport them to the labelling machinery in a clean room hygienic environment.

The rolls are loaded onto the labelling or packaging machinery via a side feed in a restricted space, preventing easy maneuvering of the lifting machine itself to reach the load point on the processing machinery. The extra-long single spindle attachment has been extended to 850mm (from 450mm) to gain access to the mandrel side feed on the packaging machine.

The rolls are lifted by their core from the pallet or racking in the horizontal position only as no rotation was required. The rolls are then transported horizontally to the processing machinery.

The single spindle attachment is equipped with transfer rollers to assist the operator to transfer the rolls of labels from the lifting attachment to the mandrel on the packaging machine. This reduces the requirement for operator manual handling.

The rolls of labels have a split core where a gap in the middle of the roll’s core prevents them from sliding smoothly for transfer from the single spindle attachment to the machinery load point. To ensure a smooth and easy transfer from the attachment, the single spindle is equipped with additional transfer rollers 50mm (2”) apart.

The attachment has a capacity of up to 20kg (44lbs), however higher rated models are 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.
