The Twin Spindle Attachment with side-shift facility was designed in response to a customer requirement in the pharmaceutical industry to precisely load rolls onto the packaging machinery in restricted areas.

The Side Shift Mechanism has been designed to provide a simple means of positioning the roll precisely for unloading onto the packaging machinery line.

This mechanism is suitable for environments where there is tight and restricted access to the packaging machinery.

A stabilised carriage device reduces unnecessary movement keeping the attachment securely in line.

The side-shift is available as a manual or electronic mechanism.

In addition, the twin spindle features rotating arms to unwind the rolls in situ on the twin spindle for splicing onto the packaging machine. Two levers on the twin spindle enable the operator to rotate the attachment arms as required whilst locking them in place during transportation of the rolls.

The ‘Compac’ lifter features straddle legs to gain easy access across the pallet.

Constructed from Stainless Steel the mechanism is suitable for hygienic and clean room applications.

A full bespoke design service enables the right solution to be provided for most applications.

Packline’s range of attachments are fully interchangeable and can be easily fixed or removed from any model of ‘Compac’ Lifter fitted with the unique quick release system.

This quick release system enables one ‘Compac’ Lifter to be used with multiple attachments providing an economical solution to a range of applications.
