Liftaide recently designed and installed a roll core gripper for Cadbury, Schweppes. Our team designed a roll centre core, gripping mandrel for this well-renowned manufacturer of many delicious products consumed throughout Australia.
This special lifter for Cadbury Schweppes is used for sideloading wrap rolls to confectionary packaging machines, where conventional side access is limited. This role core gripper uses a manual spring locking lever, that rotates rolls from the centre to the left and then to the right side.
Liftaide’s mandrel grippers utilises 3-point expending jaws to maintain roll direction by preventing the roll twisting found in 2 point grippers. The grip action is self-tensioning in roll core to prevent slipping when the roll load is vertically suspended, making it a reliable option for many different types of manufacturing.
