Safe Lifting of Rolls of Labels with Printing Equipment

Printing of self adhesive labels involves lifting rolls of blank pre-cut label media into a printing process and finishing with customer graphics.

The rolls can be over 60kg in weight and difficult to handle safely.

M J Products was approached by Hine Labels, a specialist self adhesive label manufacturer in Rotherham.

Hine wanted a handling solution to the following specification.

  • To remove the need to manual handling of rolls of labels
  • To reduce damage to part rolls of labels when removed from printing and returned to stock
  • To manoeuvre in compact areas alongside printing facilities.

The solution : An M J Products Easylifter with 4 swivel wheels and a footprint to reach around label rolls, combined with purpose made V dollies to store stock safely in a vertical orientation to reduce damage to part used stock.

The Roll Lifter, model RL1,  has a boom with integrated rollers to allow easy transfer of the labels to and from the machine, couple with a latch to prevent the rolls from rolling off the boom in transit.
