There are a number of industries that utilise heavy load equipments to move large items. Some of these industries include forest products, lumber, recycling, metals, construction and logistics.
Double roll stacks can be efficiently and rapidly handled in harbours, terminals and in ship loading operations.
Forklift attachment manufacturer Bolzoni Auramo
, active in all the above areas, has a complete range of clamps for efficient and damage-free handling of heavy loads in the Forest Products logistic chain.
"Today roll widths and weights are increasing and Bolzoni Auramo
is taking into consideration this trend when developing new paper roll clamps" says Lars Petersson, Bolzoni Auramo's Forest Products Handling Division Manager.
Single Tower clamp A-3 model.
"Our range of Tower Clamps
is particularly suitable for heavy-duty vertical multiple handling in paper mills and stevedoring, allowing efficient handling and reduced risk of damages by building up a tower of paper rolls stacked one on the top of the other".
"Photo shows our Single Tower clamp A-3 model
, suitable for handling stacks of 2-4 paper rolls and very useful when building up double stacks which later can be handled by our double tower clamps, up to a capacity of 12.000 Kg and 4-8 paper rolls".
The LA series of clamps have excellent visibility and are specially conceived for heavy duty handling in paper mills or stevedoring operation. The use of Bolzoni Auramo tower clamps increases productivity in handling.

To reduce risks of paper damages Bolzoni Auramo
offers its latest option, the Hydraulically Adjustable Height
suitable for all tower clamps, both for single and for double roll handling.
This option allows the driver to easily adjust the height of clamp to fit rolls to be handled. The advantage is a secure grip on all rolls and reduced risk of damaging paper roll edges.
Photo below shows clamp's flexibility to adjust according to handled combinations and sizes of paper rolls.
"We all know that paper rolls are at their weakest and most sensitive to damage when clamping on or near the roll edges. That's one of the reasons why we always recommend split arm clamps" continues Lars Petersson.
"The optimal solution is to have one contact pad on each paper roll to give a secure grip and to have clamping force on each paper roll to be handled. When working with Bolzoni Auramo Tower Clamp the total clamping force is divided on six arms/contact pads. Each roll has to be handled with lowest possible clamping force! Height of clamp can be adjusted to the number of paper rolls and roll width."
In the industry's current situation, loading / unloading operations and heavy load handling are becoming more and more important.
With the widest range of attachments, models and options on the market, Bolzoni Auramo
has the right product for safe, efficient and damage-free handling of all types of loads, allowing forklift operators to extend the application field, the versatility and the performance of lift trucks.
