Drum & Barrel Handling

When it comes to handling drums and barrel lifting equipment, we have a range of products to help make it a one person task and reduce manual handling lifting strains and injuries.

Watch our solutions

Lightweight & 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.

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.

Fixed Environment

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 Peterborough.

Deciding on a Handling Solution

There are many standard solutions available for handling drums and barrels safely and for more specific goods, equipment can be modified to suit you.

Deciding on the barrel lift solution will involve assessing your current process, your teams and the environment; and this will help a professional to offer you the most suitable solution.

If you need something lifting but you’re not sure how or what type of lifting equipment to select, you are invited to visit us to see everything in operation in our showroom. Our materials handling specialists will be able to discuss options with you and help you to choose the right solution.
