Large Roll Stretch Wrapper

Large Roll Handling & Mandrel Extraction

Handling large rolls and performing mandrel extraction can be a challenging task, especially in industrial settings. The sheer size and weight of these rolls can make manual handling not only difficult but also potentially hazardous. Workers may be at risk of injury due to the physical strain or accidents that can occur during the handling process. Additionally, manual handling often requires more time and effort, which can lower overall productivity.

Mandrel extraction is another complex task that involves removing the core around which the roll material is wound. This procedure requires precision and care to prevent damage to the roll or the mandrel itself. Manual extraction can be tedious, and there's always a risk of human error, leading to costly mistakes.
