Roll & Reel Handling And Lifting Systems
Palamatic design quality vacuum lifting systems. Each industrial sector faces its own set of problems when moving materials throughout the operation. Our knowledge has built up over years of working with companies in over 20 manufacturing industries. The Palamatic Vacuum Lifter concept is simply about offering distinct categories that combine to lift loads from 10kg (22lbs) or less up to 400kg (880lbs).
An extensive collection
We offer three distinct ranges of Vacuum Tube Lifting System including: PL This range of products remains a good standard system for general operating processes such as sack lifting and box lifting. HCL Wide-spread use in 45G drums handling and in the woodworking industry for handlings large sheets and boards. Palamatic S-LINE is our newest development in vacuum lifting devices incorporating a vacuum control assembly with side handle generally the most popular design for many reel handling processes where design mimics operators natural action. The new Palamatic LITE is ideal for fast, speedy operations utilising a trigger control valve design and control head adaptors that fit like a glove.

The smarter choice
Roll (reel) handling poses many ergonomic problems for process operatives. Roll lifting is necessary where they are removed from printing or converting machines to be stacked on pallets. At the other end of the production line this process is reversed. This process can also involve roll manipulation/rotation through 90 degrees. Reels can ‘telescope’ when picked from the core using mechanical grippers and, in many cases the reel has to be re-wound. Occasionally this can mean a totally wasted reel.
Damage to the edge of the reel is widespread when badly handled. As with all manual handling of heavy loads the operator cannot always protect the product if dropped or knocked against a work surface. The Palamatic reel manipulating systems solve both problems with specially designed suction pads to cope with varying diameters.
Grip is achieved across all the windings which, when lifted, prevents any spiralling occurring. Because the reel is now weightless the operator can exercise more care when manoeuvring it. With the addition of manual or pneumatically powered turning systems, the reel can safely and easily be turned through 90°.
