Built to Integrate with Your Process

Every roll payload has unique handling requirements. From the weight, material, and size of rolls that need to be transported, to your specific work environment and processes, Engineered Ergonomics offers customized lifters, accessories and end effectors to create the perfect roll lifting solution. Some of the tooling and systems that we offer for our roll lifting equipment include:

Core Expander – Lifting is initiated by the tooling expanding inside the core of the roll.  Allows user to pick up rolls from a vertical position or horizontal positions.


OD Grippers – Designed for applications where the core of the roll needs to remain open. OD grippers use a gentle, controlled force to pick up large rolls, without damaging the product.


Anti-Telescoping Attachment – Stabilizes the outer wraps on a roll that are prone to telescoping. The Anti-Telescopic attachment is manually operated and offers the user the ability to stabilize rolls prior to them being rotated for placement onto spindles.


Wash Down Enclosures – Stainless steel frames and enclosures that are IP 66 compliant and can be cleaned with a hose or power washed with various cleaning solutions.


Explosion Proof – This option provides for Explosion Proof enclosures for the control panel, Power Pack (batteries) w/ Charger along with motor(s) for ATEX Compliance in European Zone 1 and US NEC 505 Zone 1 Hazardous Locations. For other certifications please contact us.


Low-Built Legs – Allow mobile lifters to access rolls from machines with under a 4” clearance height.


Spacer Pallet – Spacer pallets are used to provide clearance for lifter legs.  Place shipper pallets on the aluminum spacer pallet.  These are also available with rotator rings allowing operators to position loads in specific locations.


Roll Grip Pad Turntable – After pick-up, rotate rolls 90° via a manual turntable. This provides access for spindles, shafts, etc. Also use this feature to realign flap orientation. Locking detents can fix the rotation angle at customer defined points.


While these are some of our more popular accessories, this is in no way an exhaustive list of our options. Engineered Ergonomics specializes in the design and development of customized drum lifting equipment that will resolve safety and inefficiency issues.
