Advanced Handling has recently returned from the Health and Safety Event held at the NEC, Birmingham at the end of March.
The PRONOMIC P model with Squeeze&Turn lifting device was again a very popular talking feature. Regular demonstrations throughout the day showcase the equipment’s ability to grip, lift and turn the cylindrical drums and pour the contents into a second drum.
The simple demonstration offered visitors the chance to consider how this technology would help in their handling of reels, rolls and drums. We were also able to discuss the other application of the Expand&Turn lifting device which operates on similar technology however is designed specifically to lift the load from with the the core. Fitted with pneumatic grippers they expand and hold the reel in position while it is lifted and turned.
This smooth lifting technology is all controlled by the operator with a joystick and a hand controller to lift and lower. The load weight and manipulation is all managed by the PRONOMIC Lift&Drive P model. With a maximum load capacity of 110kg this solution has been beneficial to many operations across a variety of industries.
The next exhibition the PRONOMIC Squeeze&Turn can be seen at is the Safety & Health Expo at ExCel, London between 16-18 June 2015 on the Advanced Handling stand Q1900.
