VISY
PAPER EQUIPMENT

Materials Handling Equipment (MHE) offers specialised equipment and services for the materials handling industry, and more specifically the paper and recycling industries.

Paper Roll Handling

Providing the benefit of both cost and space saving

Paper roll handling involves working with manufactured paper rolls of different sizes, weights, shapes and grades , with the most common types being packaging paper, publication paper and tissue paper.

By providing the right truck and attachment combination it is possible for a paper roll load to be held closer to the truck, often meaning a smaller forklift can be used, providing customers with the benefit of both cost and space saving.

Choosing the right attachment with hydraulics can allow an operator to place paper rolls gently on the ground without damage. The same attachment hydraulics provide precision rotation and clamping movements.

If you require paper roll handling equipment, Visy can assist with:

  • Equipment purchasing

  • Equipment hire

  • Equipment fleet management

  • Equipment maintenance and parts & service

Paper Roll Distribution

The high value of paper rolls makes safe and delicate handling critical


Paper rolls are shipped using all key modes of transport - road, rail and sea. As such, they require different loading and handling procedures, and specialised attachments.

Paper rolls are often transported over long distances, and are handled multiple times between production and end-customer. The high value of paper rolls makes safe and delicate handling critical.

Despite often having a protective paper layer on the outside, damage can be caused due to clamps being too tight, or uneven placement on uneven ground. Even minimal damage to paper rolls may result in the disposal of impacted sections or customers refusing to accept delivery of damaged goods.

Choosing the right truck and attachment combinations can greatly contribute to moving and transporting paper rolls without damage, reducing financial loss and production disruption.

If you require paper roll distribution equipment, Visy can assist with:

  • Equipment purchasing

  • Equipment hire

  • Equipment fleet management

  • Equipment maintenance and parts & service

Paper Roll Customers

Ensure paper rolls are properly protected


Paper roll customers need to manoeuvre paper rolls to use them in their manufacturing processes, including setting up with printing equipment, corrugators and tissue convertors.

Different size and shaped paper rolls often require clamp systems to ensure the paper rolls are properly protected.

Different clamp systems include:

Standard Paper Roll Clamps - with 180° or 360° rotation, with custom clamp pads for different paper types.

Tissue Roll Clamps - have larger contact pads and opening widths than paper rolls clamps, to increase contact area, and reduce potential damage to the tissue roll.

Roll Upenders - allow paper rolls to be tilted safely up to 90%. They are used for picking up rolls from machines when normal paper roll clamps cannot reach or would be inefficient, or when loading/unloading trucks, etc.

Split Arm Clamps - have the ability to handle two smaller height rolls simultaneously.

Tower Clamps - can handle as many as 6 paper rolls at the same time. These clamps do not revolve, and are suitable for operations where fast unloading is required.

If you require paper roll clamps and roll unenders, Visy can assist with:

  • Equipment purchasing

  • Equipment hire

  • Equipment fleet management

  • Equipment maintenance and parts & service

Finished Paper Handling

Finished paper products are still susceptible to external damage

Palletised finished paper products are lower in density than paper rolls, but greater in volume.

The task of handling palletised paper is very similar to that of handling other product types. Even though loads are shrink wrapped and have wooden top lids to facilitate safe stacking, finished paper products are still susceptible to external damage.

Improved output can be achieved and damage can be prevented by using appropriate attachments, including double pallet handlers, load stabilisers, or sideshift forks.

If you require equipment for handling finished paper products, Visy can assist with:

  • Equipment purchasing

  • Equipment hire

  • Equipment fleet management

  • Equipment maintenance and parts & service
