This vertical spindle attachment was designed to handle very narrow rolls of labels from the pallet to the packaging machinery.

The vertical spindle tube has been shortened to allow accurate gripping of the narrow rolls. This is achieved by shortening the vertical spindle tube front end kit.

In addition, the gripping fingers on the vertical spindle attachment have been shortened to ensure compatibility and a firm hold on the narrow rolls.

In addition, the lifting machine frame has been lengthened to lift the rolls of labels onto the high load point on the packaging machinery.

The rolls are picked up from the pallet in the vertical position and rotated to the horizontal for loading onto the machinery mandrel.

This lifting solution offers geared rotation and manual gripping mechanism with electric lift and lower functions.

The vertical spindle attachment has a gearbox with manual handwheel for the rotation to and from the vertical to horizontal orientations. A further handwheel provides the reel gripping and release action.

The rolls are securely gripped by the core. This mechanism has a torque limiter fitted so that the clamping fingers do not over or under tighten.

This attachment is manufactured from stainless steel which makes it entirely suitable for clean room environments and 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.
This attachment is also available with powered roll rotation.

The lift capacity is 150kg, however, larger capacities and to suit various roll widths, are available on request.
