National Tissue Company Reduces At-Work Injury with Appleton Mfg. Division's Heavy Duty Large Roller

October 2009, Appleton, WI (Phone: 920-751-1555, Website: National Tissue Company recently partnered up with Appleton Mfg. Division to help reduce the risk of on-site injuries to workers moving large rolls of tissue. With the innovative Appleton HDLR (Heavy Duty Large Roller), National Tissue Company is able to provide employees with a safe and efficient method for transporting oversized rolls. This reduction in injury risk has helped National Tissue to lower overhead costs associated with work injuries, allowing the company to provide a product at competitive rates.

"The HDLR has provided our staff with a safe and easy way to transport large rolls without injury. The roll mover takes a quite daunting and potentially dangerous task and turns it into one of ease. Our employees love them and they have truly helped to boost our on-site safety," explains Mike Graverson, President of National Tissue Company.

Appleton Mfg. Division's Heavy Duty Large Roller RollMover offers power, durability, control with its variable-speed, twist throttle handle. The innovative contour in the wheel prevents any edge-of-wheel markings on the roll, for damage-free moving of soft material rolls, including tissue and nonwovens loads weighing up to 20,000 pounds. The HDLR large drive roller provides an expanded surface area that helps eliminate any "wheel sink" that might allow the mover chassis to contact and damage the roll surface. In addition, the higher apex of wheel-to-roll contact eliminates the mover from being pinned underneath the roll, making the Appleton RollMover ideal for companies needing to move and transport larger rolls of tissue, toweling, and nonwovens.

Appleton Mfg. Division is a fully integrated engineering, design, sales, service and manufacturing firm producing custom and semi-custom material handling solutions. Dedicated to providing innovation and customer service, Appleton Mfg. Division offers a full line of core cutters, core handling & finishing, roll & cart movers, safe-slabs, parts & service, and showers/shower systems.
