The Stainless Fork Attachment was designed in response to a customer enquiry in the pharmaceutical industry to handle IBC tanks of liquids (Intermediate Bulk Containers) in a clean room environment, minimising operator manual handling.

This lifting equipment transports the IBC from storage to the processing area, where the ingredients are mixed in a clean room environment. The attachment lifts the IBC to height in order to dispense into the mixing equipment.

The attachment forks (300mm width, 790mm reach) are designed to travel beneath the IBC stand and lift the whole tank to a height of up to 3m. The attachment forks are equipped with a safety retaining lip to ensure the IBC is securely held in place whilst being handled.

The raising and lowering actions of the Fork 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.

This lifter is suitable for the pharmaceutical industry and other hygienic applications.

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.
