Bushman Equipment Roll Lifter Looks Good on Paper; Works Great in Plant

Bushman Equipment, Inc, a manufacturer of custom-engineered material handling solutions, recently delivered a motorized roll lifter to Clearwater Paper Corporation’s papermaking and tissue converting mill in Lewiston, ID. The company is the United States’ largest provider of private label tissue to retail grocery chains.

The Below-the-Hook crane attachment is used to lift paper rolls on and off a stretch wrapper. Each roll lifter that Bushman manufactures is designed specifically to customer needs and requirements. This unit had a challenging weight restriction. Bushman’s solution was to provide lighter weight aluminum gripping pads.

The lifter is equipped to handle a roll up to 5,000 pounds, gripping around the outer diameter rather than engaging the core. It picks rolls measuring from 36” to 72” in diameter and 60” to 102” in length. It is the third piece of equipment Bushman has made for Clearwater; lifting tongs and a spreader beam having been delivered the past.
