Roll handling solutions


Easy and efficient roll handling, every day

Moving rolls from A to B? Trying to manage efficient roll handling without lifting aids? It’s strenuous work.
Rolls are difficult to lift and transport by their design, often heavy, big and ungainly. Repetitive lifting of rolls can strain the back, knees and shoulders. Safety and ergonomics are important aspects in a workplace, and using correct lifting aids can significantly increase both.

TAWI manufactures lifting solutions to achieve an optimal combination of efficiency, safety and ergonomics. With a lifting trolley from TAWI, the operator can pick up a roll vertically from a pallet, tilt it to a horizontal position and move the roll from A to B effortlessly.

If you need to move rolls over large areas in your facilities or handle the same type of roll at several locations, a TAWI Lifting Trolley is a great solution. The trolley is easy to push and turn, small enough to pass through narrow passages and doors, yet strong enough to handle rolls up to 550 lbs.

SCA in Sweden is one of many companies that benefit from TAWI Lifting Trolleys in their production. Handling many big and bulky rolls daily, SCA searched for a solution to minimise the strain on workers’ backs, shoulders and knees. Investing in six trolleys from TAWI has made it possible for workers to pick up rolls vertically and horizontally, transport them,s and mount them in a machine with increased speed and minimum effort.
