The cooperation with Klingenberg Group began more than 25 years ago when Bo Vennstrom, Bolzoni Auramo Sales Director in those years, started discussing with Mr Erik Klingenberg, finalizing the supply of P-650 pulp clamps and tippling roll clamps.

Bolzoni Auramo has recently delivered three pulp bale clamps model BA-100, specifically designed for effective and safe heavy-duty pulp bale handling. The strong and robust frame and arm structure with capacity of 10,000 kg at 800 mm load center, together with a wide choice of arm configurations and mounting options, enable efficient handling of 1 to 4 pulp bale units of all sizes.
