The stainless die handling cradle was designed in response to a customer enquiry in the medical industry to handle and transport dies to a storage trolley, minimising operator manual handling.

The dies are loaded onto the cradle attachment from the press, locked into place and transported to the storage trolley. The attachment rotates the dies to the vertical position for loading onto the storage trolley.

This bespoke cradle attachment lifts and rotates the dies using location slots. The dies glide onto the attachment and locks into the location slots. Once transferred to the storage trolley the dies lock into place with the corresponding location slots. The dies are stored on the trolley in the vertical position.

The rotation facility features geared rotation by means of a handwheel.

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.

This lifter is suitable for medical industries 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.
