Erie, Michigan, USA, Aug 2018 - MoveRoll Oy, a Finnish provider of innovative roll handling equipment, recently gave a one-day onsite technical seminar at Automatic Handling International in Erie, Michigan. Mikko Rantanen, Founder of MoveRoll Oy and Juha Lahtinen, North American Sales Manager of MoveRoll Oy spoke with Automatic Handling engineers, toured the 150,000 sq foot manufacturing and engineering campus and answered in-depth technical questions regarding their line of roll handling products.
The Automatic Handling's heavy duty roll handling solutions for paper, tissue, non-wovens, and converting customers include slat-chain conveyors, belt, and belt over roller conveyors, chain driven live roller conveyors, heavy-duty shuttle conveyors, upenders, lowerators, automatic carts, and overhead crane systems, but did not include a floor level horizontal conveyor such as MoveRoll has developed.
"I was motivated by the positive atmosphere of all the employees and engineers," said Mr. Lahtinen. "All of the facilities were very impressive."
"The MoveRoll products give us another tool in our toolbelt," said Andrew Pienta, Regional Sales Director at Automatic Handling International, Inc. "When we help our customers with system solutions, we want to be able to give them the best solution for their facility."
The collaborative visit allowed both companies to understand each other's strengths better. Automatic Handling International, Inc recognized the unique solution that Moveroll uses to move paper rolls through paper mills and asked to integrate that solution into recent designs for two North American paper mills.
