In today’s demanding workplace, health and safety issues concerning reel handling and, in particular, the weight of the shaft, are constantly being addressed by Svecom PE, a company renowned for the design and manufacture of handling systems for any diameter, length and weight of air shaft.
Developed from Svecom’s Model 501/BA, the company’s latest electronic shaft extracting trolley is designed for the extraction and handling of expanding shafts and chucks from a reel of wound material, such as paper of various base weights, and for the re-insertion of the same in paper core or cores which have been suitably prepared by the operator.
Electrically powered via a high-capacity battery, the new extractor comprises a base frame mounted on wheels, an electro-hydraulic pump and a piston that drives a vertical carriage which, in turn, supports a hydraulically-powered vice in which the shaft is clamped.
Jarshire has already supplied a number of these extractors to a Tissue Mill and a Paper Mill, to handle expanding core plugs and a winder rewind shaft.
