Packaging Reel Lift-Rotate-Position Solution



Case Study:

A national food manufacturer approached Sitecraft in relation to a manual handling issue that had arisen at their processing plant. They needed a solution for the safe handling and loading of packaging film onto their production equipment.

To reduce costs the packaging supplier was now supplying much larger rolls weighing up to 100 kilo grams each. What previously could be handled manually, now required a powered lifting device to handle these safely.

The reels were supplied sitting vertically on a pallet. These needed to be both lifted and then rotated into the horizontal position for loading onto the packaging line.

Sitecraft designed and manufactured a battery/electric lifter fitted with a stainless-steel clamp/rotator attachment. This enabled the effortless lifting, rotation and positioning of reels weighing up to 150kg each.
