Foster has announced the immediate availability of the Foster On-a-Roll Lifter Jumbo, a new lifter developed in collaboration with EFI.  The new device was designed for use with EFI and VUTEk wide-format and superwide printers, as well as EFI Reggiani textile printers, but is suitable for a variety of similar rollfed printers in the marketplace.
With the Foster Jumbo, printer operators and shop floor personnel can quickly and safely maneuver rolls as heavy as 990 lbs (450 kg) and with roll diameters as great as 19.6”. The Foster Jumbo lifter has a roll tray that facilitates loading and unloading, as well as transporting rolls.
Announcing the new lifter, Foster CEO Ted Borowsky said: “Large media rolls such as those used by EFI printers are extremely difficult for operators to handle in the typical print shop, converter, or packaging firm.
