Packline Materials Handling lifting equipment for rolls of cheese

Friday, 10 December, 2021 | Supplied by: SiteCraft


The Packline Materials Handling and Ultrasource LLC stainless clamp attachment with powered clamping and manual rotation was designed in response to a customer enquiry in the cheese processing industry to lift, transport and rotate rolls of cheese in confined spaces.

Constructed from stainless steel, this roll handling solution is suitable for clean room environments such as the food processing industries.

The rotating clamp attachment is smaller and narrower than the standard clamp with a new bespoke rotation system for the small clamp attachment, with locking indents to hold fixed positions at pre-set angles.

The cheese is stored on racks to mature and turned 180 degrees every few days. The clamp attachment has been redesigned with a low profile and narrow rotation head to enable the clamp to access the cheese on the racks and rotate them by 180 degrees.

The cheese is regularly transported to a washing area to be washed at a 45-degree angle on both sides of the cheese. The lifter transports the cheeses to the wash area and securely holds the cheese at the required angle.

The clamp attachment maintains the required fixed angle of 45 degrees by means of bespoke threaded ball index plungers and locking indents, suitable for the narrow rotation mechanism. The clamp attachment features electric clamping incorporating a low-capacity torque limiter ensuring the clamp does not overtighten and damage the cheese.

All Packline attachments are fully interchangeable and can be easily fixed or removed from any model of ‘Compac’ lifting machine that is fitted with the quick release system.

This attachment has a lifting capacity of 40 kg depending upon the machine model. The purpose-designed compact framework, positioning of handlebars and addition of an optional remote-control device is designed to provide improved manoeuvrability and ease of use for the operator. The small footprint makes this drum handling equipment highly manoeuvrable.
