As health and safety regulations become stricter, and processes need to be more efficient, forward-looking companies are looking for roll handling solutions that will meet the latest requirements. Meeting this challenge, and building on its well-established LiftAssist® range, Dotec has introduced the new RH50 roll handler.
Based in Joure, the Netherlands, Dotec has specialised in roll and general handling systems since 1993. Its products are to be found in many applications and in a variety of industries, notably however, in the flexible packaging, hygiene, and yarns and fabric industries.
Advances in production methods in these industries have already resulted in a change in the sizes of the rolls being processed, with the rolls getting both larger and heavier in some cases, and smaller and lighter in others. To meet this need, Dotec's LiftAssist® handling range will safely handle rolls weighing from 10kg to 500kg.
The new RH 50 has been designed to handle rolls up to 50 kg that need to be lifted and tilted. It offers an improvement in speed and weight resulting in user-friendliness and ergonomic handling. As is typical of Dotec's equipment, the learning curve is very short with everything controlled by the touch of a finger, making it simple to work with; the work of the operator becomes lighter and the process more efficient as the physical strain is taken away, resulting in quicker, safer roll handling.
