During the event, the company unveiled the smallest clamp and newest development in the H Series product family, the cutting-edge 3H Paper Roll Clamp. The compact 3H is ideal for handling ultra-light paper and fiber rolls. Utilizing single arm geometry, the pads are able to get close to the ground, handling narrow rolls with ease and maintaining the clamp’s 360° rotating ability. The 3H can be mounted on stand-up trucks and walkie-style equipment.

Also on display was the 42H Paper Roll Clamp for mills, convertors, stevedoers, and shippers of large rolls for damage-free handling of all types of packaging paper. The clamp’s incredibly efficient hydraulic system provides faster arm and rotation speeds, and also reduces excess heat while delivering longer battery life in electric lift trucks or reduced fuel consumption in internal combustion lift trucks. Excellent visibility through the arms and frame allow for precise load handling.

Attendees also discovered Cascade’s extensive line of damage reduction solutions to deliver that perfect roll every time. Damage reduction solutions on display will include the Digital Tilt Control, Load Cushion, Adaptive Force Control and more. Cascade will reveal the newest addition to these options, the innovative HFC+, which enables a single paper roll clamp to handle two different sizes of paper rolls. In addition to paper roll clamps, the company also provides a wide variety of attachment offerings across the paper supply chain including pulp bale clamps, recycling clamps and single double pallet handlers.
