Motor-Driven Warp Beam Lift Truck with Cradle EE-KHUM50

For inserting full and half beams in weaving machines

Although this vehicle has been designed for heavy loads, it is very agile and can be easily operated by one person.
With its loading capacity of 5000 kg, it is hardly longer than the warp beam and can be turned on the spot.
Therefore it can be easily handled in narrow aisles.
Since the “legs” of truck do not have to go round the weaving machine, it is suitable for different weaving machine types.
The supporting rollers equipped with a safety control are hydraulically extended for driving sideways in the weaving machine.
The hydraulic side-shift facility of the warp beam makes it easier to position the warp beam in the warp beam bearing.
The vehicle is equipped with plug-in empty tube grippers for the transport of empty warp beams.
For the transport of partially wound warp beams, adaptors are inserted in the cradle.
The cradle can be lined with felt for the transport of sensitive warp material.
