If you take a look at the range of bespoke products we manufacture you’ll see we turn our expertise to a broad range of drum attachments to solve problems for different industries. Recently, for example, Wessex Resins & Adhesives a manufacturer of epoxy products asked us to design and manufacture a safe way to lift, move and tilt large, 1100mm-diameter mixing bowls while ensuring the content at the bottom of the bowls could be safely removed to reduce waste.
Fork lift truck attachments are used in conjunction with a fork lift truck to lift, carry, crane, push, pull, hold, dispense, rotate and clamp drums and other materials. They can either be mechanically or hydraulically operated.
Efficiency depends on having the right tools for the job and this is certainly true when lifting and moving large numbers of drums. St Clare Engineering has made handling volumes of drums quicker, safer and easier with a range of waist and rim-gripping drum handling attachments for forklift trucks.
Rotating a drum can be difficult and hazardous because of size, weight and storage position, so picking the right equipment for the task is important. That’s why we’ve developed a range of drum rotator forklift attachment models which rotate drums in different planes.
We are thrilled that St Clare Engineering has been nominated for a Fork Lift Truck Association Award for Excellence 2020. Unfortunately, with the lockdown in place, and the awards ceremony on hold, the black tie has had to go back in the cupboard and we’re going to have to wait to a while longer to find out if we’ve won or not!
