This lifting frame was designed in response to a customer requirement in the food processing industry to handle, lift and transport long rolls of film (2.5m) to shrink wrap machines.
The lifting frame can be lowered down to pallet level to enable easy transfer of the rolls from the pallet to the lifting frame attachment.
The long rolls of film are rolled onto the lift platform attachment from the pallet. Once loaded, the ‘gate’ on the attachment is closed to securely hold the roll in place and prevent the long rolls from falling from the attachment whilst being handled and transported to the shrink wrap machine.
The lifting frame raises the rolls up to the high lift position on the shrink wrap machine where the attachment gate is opened, and they can be rolled off into place for spin wrapping. In addition, brakes on the lifting machine ensure the lifter maintains its position whilst the rolls are being transferred.
The rolls can be stored on racks horizontally until required. The lifting attachment is designed to easily transfer the rolls onto and from the storage racks for safe storage.
The long, heavy rolls are difficult to handle manually. This lifting solution ensures that one operator can easily and safely lift and transport the rolls.
This model has electric powered lift and lower functions to lift the rolls from the pallet, and then transfer to the spin wrap machinery. The control of the lift and lower functions is made via a hand-held ‘pendant’ which provides easy operation and precise control ensuring the rolls can be accurately unloaded onto the spin wrap machine.
This lifting solution is designed for use with spin wrap machines such as the ‘Octopus Line’.
This handling solution is suitable for the food industry 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.
