This bespoke lifting clamp attachment was designed to handle bobbins or rolls of cable.
The customer, from the oil industry, required a fully powered, clamping and rotating attachment to transport the cable onto and from the production carousel.
The bobbins hold up to 200kg of cable that the production line unravels on the carousel.
The forklift supplies power to the clamp attachment via a pendant control, enabling the operator to control the clamp from outside the forklift cab, so ensuring that the bobbin is correctly aligned to the clamp.
The rotation mechanism is designed to handle the load as closely to the forklift as possible for easy and safe manoeuvrability and stability; whilst in transit.
Safe Working Load (SWL): 270kg (595.25lbs).
Construction Materials: Stainless Steel, Mild Steel, Aluminium.
