Forest products, and paper rolls in particular, are one of the main cargo groups requiring specialized lift truck attachments. Paper rolls are heavy, prone to damage, difficult to handle and have a considerable unit value. The transport chain of the rolls is often long, requiring as many as 16 handling stages before the paper roll is in the printing machine.
This makes it essential to use well-chosen, well-maintained equipment.
All paper rolls are not equal – neither are the tools to handle them.
Paper rolls are manufactured in a great variety of diameters, widths and weights. Varying printing processes and paper grades set different requirements to the physical dimensions of the paper rolls.
