A simple method of safely transporting reels of foil from pallet to machine is using a V-block tool.
Changing reels in packaging machines is carried out swiftly and safely using a Protema lift with V-block on a platform. The V-block is detachable so that the platform can be used for other chores in between changes. The detachable machine shaft is inserted into the core of the reel resting in a V-block on a Protema lift. The V-block is placed on a rotating plate for easier access. The operator can then by raising / lowering the platform and moving the trolley, smoothly position the shaft back in place with the new reel mounted on.
