Reel Rotator ensures ergonomically correct working conditions.
Danish materials handling equipment manufacturer Logitrans will use the upcoming Graph Expo in Chicago to launch Reel Rotator, a machine for transporting, lifting and rotating heavy reels with a large diameter.

"It is hard, uncomfortable and often impossible to lift and rotate reels without help – and many enquiries have now led us to develop the Reel Rotator," says Gitte Kirkegaard Berg, CEO at Logitrans A/S.

The new Reel Rotator from Interthor Inc. is compact, very manoeuvrable and ensures ergonomically correct working conditions. The gripping arms have rubber-covered gripping pads to achieve the largest friction and to ensure a gentle grip. The Reel Rotator can handle soft as well as hard reels up to an impressive 49" in diameter.

Kirkegaard Berg says safety is a key consideration when handling heavy reels. "None of the models can open the gripping arms by mistake, and the reels can only be released when placed on the floor or on a pallet. On models with electric rotation, it is only possible to rotate the reels when the gripping arms will not collide with the floor or legs."

Reel Rotator will debut in North America during the 2015 Graph Expo from September 13-16 at McCormick Place in Chicago.
