Roll Handling

Lifting solutions for the roll handling & packaging industry

Engineered Material Handling Solutions

Alum-a-Lift offers an incredibly wide range of roll handling lifts, roll inverters, roll manipulators, and roll handling carts and racks.

Our standard chassis offers proven lifting power and allows for heavier and dynamic side loads. Custom end-effectors provide precise manipulation designed specifically for the object you need to handle. Our compacts lifts can raise, move, and rotate rolls, core shafts, core plugs, dies, cutting heads, slitters, and more.

Every handling system undergoes rigorous factory testing and extensive QC inspections, ensuring your lift stand up to the demands of your process.

Built-to-order Lifts for Seamless Integration

Our lightweight, mobile solutions can lift rolls in a wide variety of configurations. As with all Alum-a-Lifts, our offerings are not “one size fits all.” Your lift will be a tailored fit, perfectly matched to your rolls’ size and weight, your process equipment, and the environment in which it will be used.

Our lifts can:

Approach rolls from the side with notched forks or cradles

Clamp and rotate rolls by engaging or gripping the outside diameter

Lift from the end with a mandrel matched to the core

Ease sliding with roller booms that have embedded rollers or ball transfers

Serve as a mobile payoff stand with winder/unwinder or idler modules

Change roll orientation or payoff direction with a swiveling bearing

Raise, move, and rotate rolls, core shafts, core plugs, dies, and cutting heads

And much more

Other options include powered modules for very heavy loads, expanding mandrels that are interchangeable, quick-change batteries, and counterbalanced lifts.
