Handling of drums and containers

The lifting and handling of drums, cans or barrels are difficult and painful operations. Whether upstream of the production line or in the distribution, the handling of these loads may be repetitive and hazardous to the health of operators.

Stacking of drums, or palleting of cans for loading trucks or logistical warehouses, involves continuous and repetitive lifting of heavy loads. The ergonomics of gestures and postures is difficult to respect in these cases, especially when the operator wants to maintain a high rate.

Once filled, bottles, barrels and drums become heavy enough to directly cause occupational diseases such as MSD (Musculoskeletal Disorder). It then becomes essential to equip the operators with handling solutions, both for safety and for issues of productivity. At the end of the day, operators assisted by a cobotic vehicle (collaborative robot) maintain a constant rate, unlike the employees required to lift several hundred kilos of loads per hour.

Finally, the Manut-LM lifting tube solutions guarantee the security of workers and businesses, especially when the liquids contained in the loads are dangerous: chemical products, corrosive, acids, flammable etc. Our products can be fitted with safety devices that prevent avoid any release of loads or uncontrolled reversal.

Handling of cans

Cans, unlike drums, are raised by the loops with a suitable tool, designed and manufactured in accordance with clients' needs. The problems encountered in the handling of cans are therefore different for each type of container, especially according to the use that is made: filling within the production line, emptying, handling / palleting of cans etc…


Lifting cans can be dangerous when the substances contained in them are flammable or corrosive. It is therefore necessary to ensure that the load will not be knocked over or dropped by the operator.

Basculement de fûts ou bidons

L’opération de basculement de fûts ou de retournement de bidons peut s‘avérer complexe lorsque les contenus doivent être déversés en hauteur : la position adoptée par l’opérateur peut s’avérer non-ergonomique. Ces situations sont souvent source de TMS (troubles musculosquelettiques).

En cas de liquides dangereux, l’opération devient d’autant plus critique car le renversement peut être source d’accidents de travail et d’arrêts de travail prolongés.

Handling of buckets

Operators of paint production plants, and their distributors, can move several tonnes of buckets of paint per day.


The repetition and weight of these loads generates MSD (Musculoskeletal Disorders) which in turn cause work stoppages.
