November 30, -0001

Westerly, RI-based Maxson Automatic Machinery Company has introduced its Dual Position Roll Stand, that is able to handle two rolls. Each position can lift a roll up to 84 inches in diameter and up to 7000 pounds at speeds up to 3000 feet per minute.

Hydraulically powered, each position loads a roll by lowering both arms and then moving each toward the roll. Sufficient clamping pressure is exited to drive the chucks into the core. Tele­phone: 401-596-0162; Fax: 401-596-3870; Email: bburdick@maxsonautomatic.com; Web: www.­maxson­auto­matic­.com
