Our Expand-O-Turn Light™ is a mechanical tool designed for the ergonomic handling of smaller rolls. The roll is gripped by the core with an expander block locking the roll to the axle by using the weight of the roll itself. The built-in gas spring makes rotation simple and nearly effortless. The Expand-O-Turn Light™ lifts and rotates the roll from a vertical to horizontal position or from a vertical to horizontal position for transfer to other equipment. The expander has two modes: active mode to lift and rotate, and inactive mode for unloading.
