Packline Materials Handling Announce Production of the New Single Spindle Attachment with Rollers, for Handling Heavy Rolls of Film and Foil

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (PRWEB) September 17, 2018 -- New from Packline, the bespoke single spindle attachment with fitted rollers is designed to lift and handle heavy rolls of film and foil. Constructed mainly from stainless steel, the roll handling equipment is suitable for clean room and high care environments, such as food and pharmaceutical industries.

The rolls are lifted by the central core. A series of rollers along the spindle attachment enables the heavy rolls to slide onto and from the attachment.

Also, a removable pin is provided to secure the rolls whilst in transit.

The attachment is reversible, a feature which enables rolls to be picked up from the floor and loaded up to a height of 1900mm (74.8 inches).

The raising and lowering action is made via a hand held ‘pendant’ control which means that the operator can observe the loading and unloading of the rolls for greater precision.

All these features combine to provide the operator to lift, transport and handle rolls with complete confidence and safety.

The machine and its attachment are suitable for the pharmaceutical and food industries and other hygienic applications.

The attachment is backed up by a full bespoke design service so ensuring that the right solution can be made to suit most lifting requirements.

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 attachment quick release system.


  • Lifting capacity: 300kg (661.39lbs) maximum.
  • Maximum Lifting Height: 1900mm (74.80”) - maximum height to centre of spindle.
  • Load centre (C of G): 543mm (21.38”) - from the column.
  • Main materials: Stainless steel, 303/304. Polypropylene.

This stainless steel roll lifting machine is suitable for use in the following industries:

  • Food
  • Drinks and Beverages
  • Dairy
  • Pharmaceutical
  • Medical - Chemical
  • FMCG (Fast Moving Consumer Goods)

The purpose-designed compact framework, positioning of handlebars and addition of an optional remote control device provide improved manoeuvrability and ease of use for the operator.

The small footprint makes this roll handling equipment highly manoeuvrable and a natural choice for today’s narrow production lines and demanding lifting requirements.
