Better Machine Control with Lowell Ratcheting Crank HandleLowell Corporation
WEST BOYLSTON, MA November 16, 2020 – Lowell’s latest ratcheting crank handle offers a convenient alternative to handwheels and similar devices. The tool is essential for logistics and distribution workers, specifically in packaging, converting, and printing machinery. Applications include corrugating rollers, die cutters, doctor blades, slitters, unwinds, and rewinds.
With a crank handle, you can make many adjustments: crossfeed, rise and fall, gib and quill, positioning screw, and clamping. Openings include bore and keyway, square, or hex, and Lowell can also create custom openings to customer specifications.
Serving Engineers Nationwide
Combining leverage and strength with ergonomic design, the crank handles make set-up and adjustment faster, safer, and easier for the operator and easier on machinery.
The devices work best in tough manual labor. In the head of each crank handle is a control that reverses the ratchet action safely and easily. All cranks are steel with riveted stampings. Slim profile gears pre-assemble at the factory and are not replaceable. Lowell crank handles are far less likely to slip, stick, or freeze with this rugged construction than other devices. They can even generate enough torque to serve as a useful manual backup to a motor.
Lowell’s crank handles primarily facilitate permanent mounting on shafts or studs. Furthermore, the patented Bolt-Thru™ design lets you attach the tool to any shaft length. They are available with either fixed metal handles, rotating metal handles, or lower-cost rotating plastic handles. Available arm lengths range from 7”- 12”.
The crank handles also incorporate into new machine designs and part replacements on existing machines. Lowell offers both stock models and custom designs for special applications.
