Roll and reel handling from Jarshire featuring Dotec’s new roll handler and Renova’s Moviroll
UK agent Jarshire Limited has announced the introduction of the RH200, the latest roll handler from Dotec, a long-term user-friendly and speedy solution that offers increased ease of movement for operators.
Designed for efficient and multi-functional roll handling in the flexible packaging, labelling and non-woven (hygiene) markets, the RH200 is a heavy-duty rotary action handler for large diameter rolls up to 200 kilograms
Different air balancers can be provided depending on the demands of the users, these options relating to the required vertical travel (stroke) with the aim of minimising the total weight of the configuration.
Jarshire also announces the introduction of a new Dotec heavy-duty shaft trolley. This pneumatic trolley takes rolls from the shaft, allowing access for the RH200 roll-handler to lift, tilt and place the rolls on the pallet in a time- and money-saving process.
When combined with the RH200, operators are provided with a safe and ergonomic roll handling solution with considerably improved productivity and working conditions. Thus, the packaging process becomes “in tune” with the high speed of the slitting process.
Another recent addition to Jarshire’s range is the roll and reel pushing equipment from Renova Srl. Moviroll is a roll pusher that allows the operator to effortlessly manoeuvre both large and small cylindrical loads on a flat surface and then place them on the roll stand shuttle cart.
The machine uses the power of a pneumatic gear motor that is stimulated by pressurised and lubricated air at 6 bar, this allowing the transmission of circular motion to a pyramid system consisting of three rubber rollers. The power transmission begins when the Moviroll’s drive roller is compressed by contact with the weight of the roll to be moved. Should the machine be activated without load, the drive roller will simply run free.
Compact, robust and with low maintenance, the Moviroll system allows the movement of the load in a continuous and regular way and is ideal for handling paper, tissue and converting rolls in a simple and safe manner. All that is required is a compressed air connection.
