Indian machine manufacturer and supplier Vinsak has upgraded its roll lifter series with the VRL 250 and 400 models, providing easier handling and movement of rolls at print factories.
The new VRL series is equipped with safety brake for loading, unloading and transporting the rolls safely. The roll lifter can be rotated over 360 degrees for precise alignment.
Sanjdip Kandhari, director of manufacturing at Vinsak said: ‘The company launched the VRL 350 in 2016. It is can handle a weight up to 350kgs with roll dimension of 500 x 900mm. We installed several of these but a lot of our customers were enquiring about a roll lifter which can handle roll width of 1000mm. Therefore, we decided to upgrade the existing model to meet the industry requirement. We hope keeping a roll lifter in press room will become an industry norm in India so that number of casualties and material damage reduce over time.’
