Details

Roll handling equipment for packaging in the foods industry typically involves handling paper or plastic film rolls by their core or by their outer diameter. Clamping end-effectors are a common way to grip the outer diameter, leaving the core free for shaft insertion. This lift was noteworthy as it utilized a special low-profile arm design, allowing roll diameter to be maximized inside an unwinder with tight clearances. This increased diameter maximizes uptime and machine output by increasing the time interval between roll change-outs.
