With the VacuEasylift tube lifter different types of reels can be lifted. Reels and long heavy textile rolls, paper rolls and metal tubes are some examples.
A reel of textile can be very heavy and take up time for at least two employees with every lift. A vacuum lifter in the tapestry/textile plant makes this a one man job. The suction cup can to some extent be bent to fit perfectly on the top of the roll. A very long roll is often balanced with a twin suction foot instead of a single suction cup, which is a typical installation for roll handling where the suction cup is attached to the top of the roll.
