This Clamp Attachment with bespoke swivel pads was designed in response to a customer enquiry in the fabrics industry to lift and rotate long rolls of heavy fire-retardant material.

The fabric rolls required additional grip due to their tendency to slip and slide whilst being handled. This was achieved by means of clamping attachment with bespoke gripping pads.

The clamping attachment features clamp pads constructed of nitrile rubber to securely grip the rolls.

In addition, the clamp encompasses four swivel arms to further ensure a firm grip of the roll diameter.

The attachment has two handwheels, the first provides the easy grip and release action of the rolls which are secured by the external diameter. The second handwheel is for the roll rotation to and from the vertical to horizontal orientations.

The combination of these handwheels provides easy operation and precise control.

The mechanism is fitted with a torque limiter so that the gripping rollers do not over or under tighten onto the reel. This feature enables the operator to lift and transport rolls with complete confidence.

The attachment is backed up by a full bespoke design service so ensuring that the right solution can be made to suit most roll dimensions.

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.
