Vertical spindle attachment for reel lifting equipment
05 December 2019
Packline's reel lifting equipment with vertical spindle attachment and geared rotation is designed for the lifting and rotation of reels of film, foil, paper and various packaging materials with a core diameter of 75mm.
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 reels are securely gripped by the core. This mechanism has a torque limiter fitted so that the clamping fingers do not over or under tighten in the core. This enables the operator to lift reels with complete confidence and safety.
The attachment has been designed to provide a high load capacity with great strength and durability as well as improved wear resistance providing an enhanced ease of use with a simple and safe action.
This attachment is manufactured from stainless steel and anodised aluminium which makes it entirely suitable for the pharmaceutical and food industries and other 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 manual and powered reel rotation.
This reel handling equipment has a 200kg maximum lifting capacity however, larger capacities (and to suit greater reel widths), may be available on request.
