The lifting truck is able to transport a roll of film or foil beneath a conveyor belt with a restricted height, then lift to unload the roll. The configuration, according to the company, is suited to food processing environments where space is limited and cleanliness is important.
Packline Materials Handling representative Teresa Winter told FoodProductionDaily.com that the actuated roll lifter performs better than competitive lifters on the market, due to its superior construction, material quality and ease of operation. Further, she said, the lifter is easy to operate.
The actuated roll lifter incorporates a central lifting column. The telescopic column is operated using a pendant control with two push buttons; the pendant control is mounted to the side of the truck for easy storage. Within the unit, a control box is used to operate the column; an alarm sounds when it requires recharging.
The unit incorporates a rotating tray attachment. Users also can choose from single-spindle, twin-spindle, and cradle or platform attachments.
The lifter is constructed from aluminum, with a stainless-steel chassis and lifting attachment. The design makes the machine suited for environments with exacting cleanliness standards, according to the company.
The lifter has a safe working load of 40 kg, and a height of 750 mm when lowered. The maximum roll diameter is 390 mm, minimum roll length is 420 mm, lifting height range 375 mm to 955 mm, and speed to lift to its full height of 580 mm is 40 seconds.
