expand-o-turn ergonomic lifter12107-1 Series Expand-O-Turn

The 12107-1 Series Electric Expand-O-Turn is an electrically operated core expander for paper and film rolls with 3” and 6” cores and allows for manually rotating the roll. Rolls of varying dimensions, weights up to 300-lbs (depending on roll size), can be picked up from the vertical position at floor/pallet level and deposited at random heights in a horizontal position.

The Expand-O-Turn expander is operated via pushbuttons and is simple and easy to use and will not damage the core or the roll surface.
