Roll handling solutions for stretch films

The production of plastic film rolls often deals with extensive production runs, producing large batches that need to be swiftly and safely removed from machines. This is where our handler stands out. Designed to address  the unique requirements of this industry, the handler ensures that these batches are unloaded from the machines fast, reducing downtime and enhancing productivity.

 

One of the primary challenges in the production of stretch film is the horizontal transfer of rolls. Given the weight and dimensions of these rolls, manual handling is not only inefficient but also poses significant safety risks. Our handler is a prime example of advanced film roll handling equipment engineered to address this challenge.

Benefits of roll handlers

One of the added values of a Dotec Lifting Solution in this industry is reliability. Minimising downtime as much as possible and making sure that production can reach optimal output, the proportional speed of the lifting device enables this. The Friendly LiftAssist helps the operator to handle these delicate rolls of stretch film easily and ergonomically.

Our solutions for your problems

Our solutions for your problems

Handling large batches of stretch films efficiently and safely is challenging. The introduction of film roll handling equipment has revolutionized the way these rolls are managed, especially when it comes to the specifics of handling these rolls. Our plastic film roll handling equipment stands out for its innovative design and functionality.

 

A common scenario in the film roll production is the removal of rolls from long shafts out of extruders or slitters. Due to their length, these shafts often bend, making the unloading challenging and time-consuming. Film roll handling equipment that can deal with these deflecting shafts are hard to find, this together with the high speed of production makes that this is often done manually. Recognizing this challenge, we have developed a unique setting for our handlers. This setting allows the handler to be adjusted automatically at an angle, ensuring that the clamping chuck aligns linearly with the bended shaft. Our solution not only simplifies the unloading process but also speeds it up, making the Dotec handler an essential piece of plastic film roll handling equipment.

Within the industry, we often face the challenge of handling wide rolls. Our solution for this is the extended chuck, specifically designed for these rolls. Coupled with a long center point-of-gravity unit, that is designed to ensure wide rolls are handled effortlessly and safely. The rolls remain aligned due to the center point of gravity, eliminating the risks associated with tilting or dropping.

 

In conclusion, the roll industry's demands are unique and challenging. However, with our handler these challenges are being addressed. Whether it's the swift unloading of large batches, dealing with bended shafts, or handling wide rolls, our plastic film roll handling equipment offers solutions that are not only efficient but also prioritize the safety of the operator.
