The LIFT-O-FLEX™ Expand-O-Turn™ is an electric core expander for paper and film rolls.

The Expand-O-Turn™ is an electric core expander for paper and film rolls. The Expand-O-Turn is an extension for the LIFT-O-FLEX base, which allows the operator to pick up rolls weighing up to 300 pounds* and manually rotate them at various heights in a horizontal position.

Core Grip Technology

The RonI Expand-O-Turn utilizes a core expander that does not involve teeth biting into the core. The core expander does not damage the core of the roll handler and can be used with both plastic and cardboard cores.   The Expand-O-Turn (EOT) allows for 90° rotation. With the EOT, rolls can be moved from core vertical to core horizontal or core horizontal to core vertical. The core expander also utilizes wheels to aid in the removal of the roll from the core expander. The EOT comes in two standard sizes, with 3" and 6" cores.  Custom core dimensions can order up to a maximum 10" core dimension.

The expander slides into the core of the roll; the operator then adjusts the grip (via a button) which grips the roll from the inside. The pendant hand control raises or lowers the roll.

Built-in safety feature controls prevent accidental release of the roll.

Available options include:

  • An optional electric rotator allows for easy rotation of heavy rolls with ease for heavy loads.
  • Standard or custom quick disconnecting expanders are available for 3" and 6" cores (They provide an easy transition between different-sized expanders to accommodate multiple products).
  • Anti-Telescopic Attachment works best on 50-100 lbs. applications;  allows the operator to manually clamp the roll, stabilizing the product.

*Actual lift capacities depend on individual applications.
