After exhaustive investigations for a solution for fitting 20kg rolls onto machines above operators shoulders Wrigleys approached Materials Handling P/L for assistance. They provided a solution for the safe lifting of the packaging rolls via a custom designed suction-handling device. It is the clever part of a Vaculex vacuum tube lifter suspended from a MechRail lightweight gantry crane system. This project, designed tested and commissioned by Materials Handling P/L worked so well that all Wrigleys plants may adopt this device, globally.
Wrigleys have more than 12 Vaculex vacuum tube lifters in their Asquith plant assisting their operators in safe, effortless lifting tasks.
