A fibreboard or cardboard drum is one of the most environmentally efficient and sustainable packaging product and used for the delivery of mass freight. It is manufactured from kraft fibre from sustainable forest and requires only a fraction of energy to produce compared with other materials. Thus, fibreboard drums are the most cost-effective and efficient packaging types available on the market today.
At industrial companies, workers still have to do a lot of heavy lifting on a daily basis. A special lifting device makes it easy to pick up, tilt, rotate, and transport drums. This drum-moving equipment not only protects employees from physical damage, but also increases the efficiency of the workflow as a whole.
Every packaging process is unique, as not all packaging machines are alike and the characteristics of the packaging materials and the sizes of the rolls on which the films are being wound are also different. It is therefore important to determine the correct hoist for the rolls in advance.
Munich, 7 July 2020 +++ Safe transport and transfer of bulk materials and liquids: The two new lifting hoists from Hovmand make this possible. A bucket lifter with manual tilting unit assists with the special handling of buckets and small drums, while a mobile canister filling aid facilitates the transport and transfer of canisters. The world's leading manufacturer of mobile industrial lifting hoists is once again expanding its range of hoists for safe and efficient working in production.
Safe transfer of bulk goods and liquids: with the new mobile canister transferring aid, Hovmand is expanding its range of intelligent hoists for materials handling. With the new solution, the canisters are picked up on the handle by means of a hook device and securely fixed by a lock and two supporting arms. This enables the canisters to be lifted and transported. The canisters are attached to the carrying handle by means of a hook jig and securely fixed by a lock as well as two supporting arms. This enables the canisters to be lifted and transported. A manually operated rotating device enables the canisters to be tilted sideways. The unique canister tipper is a cost-effective solution for more productivity in the filling process. It not only brings benefits in terms of occupational health and safety for employees, but also in terms of productivity. Precise filling can speed up production processes.
Operations in many production areas have currently fallen sharply. This is not the case in the foodstuff industry. Production volume has actually increased in many companies. These companies must overcome the challenge of achieving the highest possible productivity with an often smaller number of staff, while still adhering to the currently applicable occupational health and safety guidelines.
