When it comes to upending coils at different angles, there are certain considerations that must be taken into account. The pallet platform length by width should be 48” x 48” for optimal safety and performance. It is important to ensure that the turner has a robust design and is packed with features and value. Operator safety, quick setup, and competitive pricing should be the main priorities when selecting a coil upender.
Coil upenders come in several sizes and different options. For high loads, a pallet dump truck can flip wide piles of products, such as coils, car body panels, and more. With a high load capacity and easy-to-operate electronic controls, this mechanical dump truck is fully capable of dumping aluminum, steel, and other non-ferrous coils efficiently. Stainless steel sanitary pallet turners are also available for cleanroom applications and other specialized units, many of which can be customized to your needs.
Below the hook, mechanical turners or coil positioners are used in production areas and maintenance applications to tilt steel, aluminum, and other non-ferrous coils at 90 degrees. Electronic limit switches provide a secondary layer of safety that prevents the device from starting up. This helps simplify the dangerous process of spinning reels or rolls with expensive forklifts while protecting employees from workplace injuries. Pallet dumps and 90-degree dump trucks can do the job of tipping a pallet much faster than a forklift or hand truck.
Coil positioners and turners provide an easy and efficient way to dump metal coils, molds, dies, and other heavy and bulky loads. Available from 11,000 pounds (5000 kg) to 110,000 pounds (50,000 kg), the MDR series of flippers or fins can be used in any application.
