Drum and Barrel Handling
When it comes to handling drums and barrels we have a range of products to help make it a one person task and reduce manual handling lifting strains and injuries.
Using "Squeeze & Turn" technology an electrical clamp and rotate module squeezes from the outside to lift and rotate with a complete 360 degree manipulation. The modular concept allows the lifter to meet the operator’s requirements in various environments and industries; including food and drink manufacturing, pharmaceuticals, processing, production and many more.
Lightweight and manoeuvrable
If you require a lightweight manoeuvrable solution to assist with moving drums or barrels over a distance, or in a confined space our PRONOMIC lifting trolleys are ideal. Our PRONOMIC Squeeze&Turn lifting trolley has a maximum lifting capacity of 110kg.
For a repetitive process in a fixed location or where equipment is unable to be floor-based we have our Movomech overhead lifting solution.
The Mechlift Pro industrial manipulator is a versatile movement absorbing lifter with a capacity for lifting loads from 75kg to 650kg. It is a versatile unit, can be either pneumatic or electric, and can be fitted with a range of attachments or end effectors including rotation tools. End effectors can either be selected from the extensive standard range or they can be designed and manufactured specifically for an individual customer or application at our factory in Market Deeping.
