Warp Beam Lift Truck with Tube Grippers KHUR7...15

With tube grippers, for inserting full warp beams in weaving machines

Very agile vehicle which is operated by one person and which is hardly longer than the warp beam. It permits turning on the spot and can therefore 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 automatic motion sequence of the supporting rollers during the lowering procedure and the side-shift facility of the warp beam make it easier to position the warp beam in the warp beam bearing. Furthermore, the vehicle is steerable during the crosswise drive.
Due to its large central running wheels, the vehicle can be very easily shifted.
The vehicle is optionally available with battery-operated lift.
Height-adjustable tube grippers are very helpful for warp beams with bearing by beam drive adaptors in order to meet exactly the center of the warp beam with the axle.
