What is Roll Handling equipment and why is it important?


Roll handling is the process of properly turning and moving a roll of material. Rolls need to be transported from manufacturing or receiving to processing, moved within the processing area, and transported to the shipping or the storage area when done. This process of turning and moving rolls requires careful thought and preparation. Employee safety needs to be considered and roll damage eliminated. Roll handling equipment is available to protect operators and ensure rolls are not damaged in transport.

Examining how rolls are currently being handled and talking with the operators to understand what would make the job easier will assist in making decisions regarding the roll handling process. There are many good solutions and researching what is available in roll handling equipment will provide valuable answers.
