Abstract

An apparatus for assisting an operator to off-load a finished roll of web from a rewind spindle permits the operator to off-load the finished roll from the rewind spindle in a more efficient and safe manner for subsequent processing. After the finished roll of web is off-loaded, the apparatus then rotates the roll from a vertical position to a horizontal position, placing the finished roll on the next working station (such as wrapping and packing).
