With our gripper for fiber reels, you can easily lift reels of fiber cable or other types of cable rolls. The reel gripper lifts with a clamping function, that grips the edges of the roll. The clamping mechanism enables the gripper to lift rolls without center tube. That the lifting tool grips the edges of the spool means that it gets a steady grip, without damaging the rolled-up cable. You can effortlessly lift heavy rolls, while protecting the sensitive cable from scrapes or scuffs.
Using a gripper for fiber reels
In the factory, the fiber cable is rolled up onto large spools. These are then lifted from machine onto a pallet. The rolls are stacked on top of each other until the pallet is fully loaded and driven away for further distribution. With our roll gripper the process becomes much simpler. Instead of lifting the rolls by hand, the operator can use the tool to grip and lift the rolls. The process is weightless, quick and easy.
Another work stage that can be heavy to preform is turning the rolls from lying to upright position. With the gripper for fiber reels you can comfortably tilt the rolls from horizontal to vertical position, by using a tilt-switch. One less heavy work task, means less wear on the shoulders and back- and a healthier staff force in the long run.
