Many production and shipping departments handle reels in their day-to-day operations. These come wrapped in all kinds of materials and are quite solid and heavy. They can also be difficult to handle by hand. A smart roll lifter makes all your ergonomic and safety concerns melt away. Hovmand handling equipment lets you step up your operational efficiency.

LIFTING ROLLS MADE EASY.

Reels are generally transported on pallets from a ramp into a warehouse. They are then sent to production or shipping for machine mounting, use and respooling. Lifting, moving and installing reels is both essential and complex. Repeating this multiple times a day without any tools to help your employees is very taxing. A roll lifter can help them handle reels without harming their bodies. Our roll lifters easily fit underneath pallets stocked with reels, making it possible to effortlessly transport reels weighing up to 250 kilograms to their destination.

REEL HANDLING HAS NEVER BEEN SO EASY – PROPERLY POSITION PACKAGING MATERIALS AND FILMS

Reel handling sometimes requires reels to be rotated 90°, especially when they’re packed vertically on a pallet. Placing reels upright on pallets is a good idea to prevent them from rolling off. However, to install them on machines, they need to be positioned horizontally. Rotating heavy-duty reels manually is pretty much impossible. That’s when a reel handler comes in handy! It allows reels up to 100 kilograms to be picked up from the core, tightly grasped and rotated. Even roller sleeves measuring 800 millimetres in diameter can be handled. There is also a safety handle to prevent gripped reels from being dropped and stop reels from being lifted unintentionally.

ROLL HANDLING EQUIPMENT EASILY TILTS AND ROTATES REELS INTO THE RIGHT PLACE

Roll handling equipment is a must-have for rotating thick, heavy reels. An electric gripper picks them up from the core and tilts and positions them in the desired location. Accurately mounting even heavy reels onto a machine’s axis is a cinch for our roll handling equipment.

A BIG HELP FOR HEAVY-DUTY REELS – THE HOVMAND ROLL TURNER

The electric roll turner on our roll lifter is designed to help hoist and move thick, bulky reels by clamping onto their cores. It carefully handles reels, making sure not crush, scratch or damage them. Hovmand has mobile roll lifters outfitted with or without a roll turner – choose the option that best suits your company’s needs.

EFFECTIVE REEL HANDLING WITH A REEL MANIPULATOR

Inefficient equipment utilisation is a downside of not properly handling reels on time. A Hovmand reel manipulator not only reduces replacement times but also enables use of larger reels because it’s capable of heavy lifting. For you, this means not having to swap out reels as often and less production downtime. Your employees also won’t have to work as hard with their bodies, and you can prevent workplace accidents caused by staff improperly lifting and putting down heavy objects and straining their backs.

“We’ve been using the Hovmand roll lifter for a few weeks now. Anyone who has used it once or twice is instantly impressed. It’s easy to manoeuvre and the film reels can be changed more quickly and without any effort. The employees immediately noticed the improvement”
