Palamatic Vacuum Lifters are ideal for reel lifting, roll lifting and turning; they are used globally in printing and packaging manufacturing companies.
Everyday thousands of reels are taken off printing or converting machines to be stacked on pallets. At the other end of the production line, the process is reversed. Reels can spiral when they are picked from the core using mechanical grippers, and in many cases the reel has to be rewound - occasionally this can mean a wasted reel. Also, damage to the edge of the reel is widespread when badly handled. As with all manual handling of heavy loads, the operator cannot always protect the product if dropped or knocked against a work surface. Therefore, Palamatic has developed a Reel Lifter and Roll Lifter for safe and effective turning and lifting. The Palamatic reel manipulating systems solve both common problems, with specially designed suction feet to cope with varying diameters. Grip is achieved across all the windings, and when the product is lifted, this prevents spiralling from occurring. The reel is now weightless, so the operator can exercise more care when manoeuvring it. With the addition of manual or pneumatically powered turning systems, the reel can safely and easily be turned through 90º.
