This stainless bespoke lifting equipment with an adjustable cradle attachment was designed in response to a customer requirement to handle aluminium air shafts loaded with foil rolls of varying diameters used in the manufacture of batteries.

The cylindrical shafts are picked up horizontally from the pallet via the mandrel inserted through the core. The rolls can be transported to the production line and lowered into place onto the mandrel frame.

The cradle attachment can be adjusted by 50-100mm on either side of the attachment to suit the diameter of the different sizes of rolls being handled up to a safe working load of 250kg.

The bespoke cradle attachment is coated with a rubber lining to prevent scratching or damage to the cylindrical air shaft.

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 lifter is entirely suitable for high care, clean room environments. The design offers impressive stability, strength, and durability and together these features combine to provide the transportation of the cylinders with ease, confidence and complete 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.
