Tissue evolving market has stimulated manufacturers to develop new products. To come up with the best and innovative solutions for the forest products handling, Bolzoni Auramo is closely cooperating with the paper industry worldwide. This makes the company the most reliable partner in paper roll handling.

The pad edge is smooth and well rounded. Pad corners have large radius design, without protruding parts or edges.

Bolzoni Auramo provides the best and innovative solution to handle the rolls without damage and in an effective way. Considering all of these important proprieties, Bolzoni Auramo, market leader in sales of paper handling tools in Europe, created a complete range of well-designed and strong tissue paper roll clamps with capacities starting from 1.500 kg up to 6.000 kg (3,000 to 13,000 lbs) and with roll diameters up to 2.700 mm (106”) in standard series. A dedicated tissue paper roll clamp has several advantages over a standard paper roll clamp when handling tissue paper grades.

Tissue clamps are always built to be able to handle large diameter rolls; they also have higher and wider contact pads to reduce surface pressure on the soft paper.

Contact pads

Bolzoni Auramo knows that contact pads are the most important part of the clamp attachment. In most normal handling situations, the pads are the only parts of the clamp that actually are in contact with the paper roll. Therefore, Bolzoni Auramo has paid special attention in designing and manufacturing contact pads, which will ensure safe and non-damaging tissue roll handling.

Designed and dedicated clamp: AR-RT tissue paper roll series

The minimized pad thickness ensures good knifing properties when handling tightly stacked and bilge rolls

The AR-RT series clamps are designed and developed to have superior visibility, great rotating speed and to be operator-friendly. Its main features: higher and wider contact pads to reduce surface pressure on the soft paper; rotating paper roll clamp for vertical and horizontal roll handling; arms and contact pads have smooth rounded surfaces and corners all around to reduce the possibility for the clamp damaging the roll; effective and robust 180-degree rack-and-pinion rotation system – hydraulic cushioning in the vertical end position; all hydraulic functions protected with built-in pressure relief valves; flat spot compensation; built-in pad and arm protection.
