The vertical spindle attachment was designed in response to a customer enquiry in the printing industry to handle reels of labels from the pallet to the processing machinery.

This Vertical Spindle attachment is designed for the lifting, rotation, and handling of reels of paper, labels, film, foil, and various packaging materials. This lifting solution offers geared rotation and manual gripping mechanism with electric lift and lower functions.

The vertical spindle attachment has a 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 reels are securely gripped by the core. This mechanism has a torque limiter fitted so that the clamping fingers do not over or under tighten.

These features combine to make quick, easy and simple transfers with minimal operator effort which means that the reels can be handled surely and safely with minimum effort and complete confidence.

The attachment has been designed to provide a high load capacity with great strength and durability as well as enhanced wear resistance.

This attachment is manufactured from stainless steel which makes it entirely suitable for the food and pharmaceutical industries and other hygienic 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.

This attachment is also available with powered roll rotation.

The lift capacity is 125kg, however, larger capacities and to suit greater roll widths, are available on request.
