This Clamp Attachment with forward tipping facility was designed in response to a customer enquiry in the food industry to lift and forward rotate rolls to access the mandrel end feed on the processing line.
The forward tipping feature enables the rolls to be presented to the load feed of the processing machinery in the horizontal position. The clamping mechanism frees the roll core to be loaded directly onto the mandrel.
The forward tipping clamp is designed to load rolls onto the processing machinery end feed at the required angle. The air shaft mandrel is inserted into the roll’s core for loading onto the processing line.
The clamping attachment features clamp pads constructed of nitrile rubber to securely grip the rolls, suitable for clean room environments.
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 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. 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.
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.
