Handling drums and containers can be a painful operation. Whether upstream of the production line or in distribution, the handling of these loads can be repetitive and dangerous for the health of operators.

Stacking drums, palletizing drums to load trucks or logistics warehouses involves continuous and repetitive lifting of heavy loads. The ergonomics of gestures and postures is difficult to respect in these cases, especially when the operator wants to maintain a high rate of speed.

Once filled, cans, barrels and drums become heavy to the point of being direct sources of occupational diseases such as MSD (musculoskeletal disorders). It is becoming essential to equip operators with lifting solutions, both for safety and productivity reasons: at the end of the day, operators assisted by a Cobotic machine (Collaborative Robot) keep a constant rhythm, unlike employees who have to lift several hundred kilos of loads per hour.

Finally, Manut-LM Tube Lifting Solutions guarantee the safety of employees and companies, especially when the liquids contained in the loads are dangerous: chemical, corrosive, acid, inflammable products, etc. Our products can be equipped with safety devices to prevent any uncontrolled release of loads or spillage.

Handling of drums

The drums, unlike the barrels, are lifted by the handles with a special tool, designed and manufactured according to the customers’ needs. The problems encountered when handling drums are therefore different for each type of drum, especially depending on the use made of them: filling in production line, emptying, handling/palletizing of drums…
Lifting drums can be dangerous when the substances contained are flammable, corrosive… It is therefore necessary to ensure that the load will not be knocked over or dropped by the operator.
Manut-LM’s handling solutions are designed specifically to meet every need: see our examples to find out what solutions are available to you!

Handling of drums

Barrels are containers that are constantly being handled: beer barrels, for example, are reused to be refilled by breweries. In this context, the handling of beer kegs is a recurring problem because of the repeated handling of loads up to 50 kg.
Manut-LM designs and manufactures in France handling solutions for breweries and other businesses involving the lifting of drums up to 300 kg!

Tilting of drums or containers

The operation of tipping drums or turning canisters can be complex when the contents must be dumped at height: the position adopted by the operator can be non-ergonomic. These situations are often a source of MSDs (musculoskeletal disorders).
In the case of dangerous liquids, the operation becomes all the more critical because the overturning can be a source of work accidents and prolonged work stoppages.
Manut-LM adapts to your loads and production processes to offer tailor-made Lifting Tube Handling Solutions.

Bucket handling

Paint plant operators and their distributors can move up to several tons of paint buckets per day. The repetition added to the weight of the loads causes MSDs (musculoskeletal disorders) which are the cause of work stoppages.
Manut-LM offers Lifting Tube Handling Solutions to increase operator productivity while eliminating the risk of MSDs.
