Paper, Packaging and Recycling

The paper industry is seeing huge growth, despite newspapers in decline

Global paper production equates to over 500 million tonnes per year. Europe produces around 35% of that total production.

Challenges

Transform Your Greatest Challenges into Opportunities

Due to e-commerce, flexible packaging remains the largest sector by tonnage.

Sustainability

Push for greater sustainability efforts throughout the industry on a global scale.

Electric capability from 1-5.5t across the product range.

  • Increased emphasis on emission reduction and green initiatives
  • Reliable, affordable and clean energy access is a key to achieving ambitious CO2 emission cuts
  • Two main technological pathways for CO2 reduction; smart usage of CO2 and direct CO2 avoidance

Increased usage of more capable electric trucks and alternative power solutions reduces environmental impact.

Product and load sizes are increasing

To increase productivity whilst minimize product damage, the right attachment should be used.

A complete product range of paper roll and bale clamps, with over 70 years of experience across all paper applications.

  • Well design clamp series with built-in damage reduction properties.
  • Different pads for efficient handling and advanced hydraulics as standard.
  • Range includes rotators and handling for multiple paper rolls.

A complete solution capable of handling every paper application, from recycling bales to high-gloss finish paper rolls.

Best practice for transporting paper rolls

Rolls must be loaded vertically along the centre of a lorry bed.

Developed specifically for the paper industry, our mast delivers an additional 250mm of extended reach capability.

  • Support best practice in EMEA.
  • Helps minimise product damage, saving costs.
  • Smaller truck footprint assists operators to load and unload more efficiently.

Return-to-set tilt function and extended carriage option bring the roll back to a vertical position helping to further minimise product damage.

Arduous conditions

Working in dusty and dirty environments, such as recycling, offers the threat of debris and foreign object damage to trucks and products.

Extreme working conditions push trucks to their limits

  • Reversing fan capability reduces debris build-up in engine compartment.
  • Hydraulic, carriage and mast protection delivers security against object damage.
  • High-level air pre-cleaners and solid multi-piece belly pans reduce impact of dust and debris.

Debris and dust resisting features can reduce the impact of the elements on truck and operator.

Solutions

Take Control with Game Changing Solutions

Our wide array of solutions cover the depth and breadth of paper, packaging and recycling challenges.

Proven Approaches

Demonstrated to Increase Productivity

Harsh conditions for soft paper

Heat, humidity, dust, abrasion - producing soft, hygienic paper is tough business and having equipment that can perform continuously in this environment is crucial to maintaining productivity.

Intelligently designed for recycling industry applications

Handling loose paper bales is one of the toughest applications that a lift truck can be used in - with the loose paper debris getting everywhere, and eventually causing cooling problems.
