EEU – Electric Expander Unit:
Roll Lifting Device for Manipulating Rolls from the Core

The electric expander unit (EEU) lifts rolls from the core from a vertical position. This roll lifting device can also turn rolls when combined with a rotation tool.

The EEU roll lifting device is ideally suited to lift rolls with the core orientated vertically. An electrically powered gripper expands within the core of the roll and holds this firmly in place allowing subsequent lifting and manipulating.

The standard gripper is designed for ø76 mm (3″) core sized but by exchanging the tooth plate on the gripper other sizes can also be gripped.

If the EEU is combined with an electric rotation unit (ERU) it becomes easy to manipulate the roll into other positions than with the core vertical. 


  • Electrically powered for safe and powerful gripping of loads.
  • Exchangeable gripper tooth plates – Simply replace the tooth plate to grip different core sizes.
  • Combine with an electric rotation unit for both gripping and rotation of loads.
  • Easy customization: dimensions can be modified to customer specifications.
  • Rugged construction for industrial use. With its all-stainless steel construction, the EEU is built to last and for use in demanding industrial environments.
  • Available in hygienic design for use in cleanrooms and the food/beverage industry.
