When different reels, e.g. foil reels, paper reels, or cylinders, are to be positioned in unwinders or packing and production machines, the space is often limited around or under the machine. The reels are often placed inside the machine, where the manoeuvrability is limited. Positioning of the reels is difficult and hard for the operator.”Many customers have asked us to find a solution for this application situation, and we have therefore developed a Reel Lifter with compact overall measurements and high manoeuvrability. With the Reel Lifter, reels can be taken the last steps into e.g. an unwinder so that the operator easily can position the reel into the machine”, says Gitte Kirkegaard, CEO at Logitrans.
The Reel Lifter is the perfect partner for the Logitrans Reel Rotator, which can take a reel from e.g. a pallet, rotate it and place it on the Reel Lifter. The Reel Lifter transports the reel to the machine and positions it gently in the right place.
”Our Reel Lifter makes it much more safe and ergonomically correct to position reels ”in complicated places”. It handles reel diameters up to Ø1270 mm and reel lengths up to 520 mm”, Gitte Kirkegaard ends the interview.
