Partner in the Wine Industry

Forklift attachment manufacturer Bolzoni Auramo cooperates with some of the most important wine industries, supplying forklift truck attachments for every stage in the production.
With the widest range of attachments, models and options on the market, the company offers the best support during all phases of wine making process.

Starting at harvesting, when the grapes are put into plastic bins to be placed in the working flow, Bolzoni Auramo can contribute by simplifying the handling and by reducing grape damage with 2 products allowing 360degree continuous rotation in both directions. Bins can be easily moved if the forklift is equipped with an Invert-a-bin, which allows for the picking up and the emptying of bins and containers, or with a Rotator, which permits rotation and emptying of bins.

After the wine is bottled, the bottles follow different paths.
Some wine bottles need to be turned several times during maturation and aging, to treat the wine sediments. The Invert-a-pallet gives the possibility to rotate full loads and to turn wine bottles during their long term storage with clear advantages in terms of handling time costs.

Later in the process wine bottles continue their journey on the truck, loaded on pallets or slip sheets.

In case of an extensive use of pallet-less handling the most suitable attachment is the Carton Clamp. This attachment ensures an even distribution of the pressure over the whole load surface area and avoids wine bottles being damaged.

When wine bottle boxes are packed on slip-sheets, Bolzoni Auramo can provide its Push-Pull, which allows the pushing and pulling of the load without the need for lateral clamping.
This attachment enables lorry and container loading, bottle storage, and the transfer on wooden pallets ready for traditional handling with forks. Its use grants great advantages in pallet cost reduction, and the increase of storage space and load units transported, with important gains in efficiency and productivity.

Bolzoni Auramo also offers a handling solution for palletized bottle boxes. The Multiple Pallet Handlers are suitable for all industries characterized by heavy handling of palletized loads and in particular soft drink industries, breweries, mineral water bottling plants.
Handling more load in less time increases the productivity and reduces handling costs during storage, loading and unloading of vehicles.

The Bolzoni Auramo suitable for the wine industry also include a wide range of lift tables, with models and capacities for all stages in wine making where ergonomic conditions, comfort and safety of the operator are paramount.
