We have a variety of roll handling equipment including roll handling carts, lifters, manipulators and roll lifts. Our battery powered manual roll handling carts are designed to probe the core of the roll while in the vertical position, lift and rotate the roll to horizontal. If probing the core isnt possible, OD Grippers are used. Telescoping is previewed via lever operated compression clamps.


Brewery bottler requires a system to lift and rotate rolls of beer bottle labels and insert them onto an unwind spindle. The rolls arrive in the workstation area in a core-vertical (eye to the sky) presentation, must be lifted and inserted onto the spindle in a core-horizontal orientation. The rolls are wrapped loose and operators need to handle the product carefully so as to avoid telescoping. A system for handling the rolls is required at several unwind locations in the building.


One of our battery operated mobile roll handling carts is provided that probes the core of the roll while in the core-vertical position, raises and rotates the load and is controlled via an operator hand controller. Telescoping of the roll is prevented by a pair of single lever compression clamps; the clamp surface is designed so as to prevent any label damage. Roll handling carts are provided on casters and can be taken to all of the unwind machine locations.
