Lift Truck Customized for Handling Paper Rolls

Dec. 15, 2015

Lift Truck designed for moving pulp and paper rolls, in capacity from 10 to 20 tons, significantly reduces damage during handling by computerizing and automatically regulating key operating information.

An auto-tilt function keeps rolls in the vertical position, and the truck is prevented from moving until the roll is off the ground. The paper clamp attachment opens automatically when the roll touches the ground. The lowering motion stops simultaneously, preventing friction of the clamp on the roll. Clamp pressure, always a challenge, can be adjusted across three different levels, which is monitored and maintained to close tolerances for the type of paper being handled.

For the lifting appliance, automatic pressure sensing and reduction technology allows operators to use off-the-shelf paper clamps.
