Manual Warp Beam Lift Truck KHUM7...15

With cradle for inserting full and half beams in weaving machines

Very agile vehicle which is operated by one person and which is shorter 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 and is especially suitable for half warp beams.
The vehicle can also be used for the removal of the empty warp beams from the weaving machine, by means of fold-out grippers.
The vehicle is constructed in loading capacity classes from 700 kg to 1500 kg.
An 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.
The cradle can be lined with felt for the transport of sensitive warp material.
