Reel lifting is very often carried out with an electric lift in different manufacturing processes such as in the food industry.
The large packaging machines are equipped with spindles, where rolls of packaging foil is inserted. The exchange of the reel must be done quickly and smoothly to avoid downtime. Our Protema lifters equipped with various reel tools are commonly used for these types of lifts. Our Easysqueeze model can be equipped with fixed or swiveling arms and handle weights up to 130 kg.
A reel can be picked up from a pallet with a Protema EasySqueeze which grips the reel sideways. The roll is gripped safely between the arms, rotated and installed in the machine. We have different types of padded grippers available and all provide a great grip on most material. Arms are suited to the type of reel replacement. The reel is gripped, turned and placed on the shaft with fixed arms. The reel can be rotated manually or electrically with swiveling arms.
