AUTOMATE your shaft removal/insertion and meet your ergonomic requirements and save time and money! The Model 217 moves in both vertical and horizontal directions and consists of a carraige tower with hydraulic gripping support arms that rolls on rails in the floor. The unit will grip the shaft end and move backward to cantilever the shaft and allow you to remove the roll, then the support arms will lower and the unit will advance toward the new core. All controls are electric and operated with either a remote hand unit or through a PLC. This model is custom-built to your application.
