The mechanical tilter is an efficient and easy way to dump metal coils, molds, dies, and other bulky and heavy loads. This device, also known as a coil positioner, can rotate steel, aluminum, and other non-ferrous coils up to 90 degrees. It is used in a variety of production and maintenance applications. For heavier duty work, we have larger COIL UPENDER platforms.
The vertical supports of the platform not only support the load but are designed to interact with the handling device that sets up or removes the load. C-hooks are available in a wide range of capacities, coil sizes, and design styles to handle the coils in the horizontal eye position. This coil manipulator allows users to transfer coils from horizontal to vertical. Supports mounted in pits enable platforms to be aligned with the ground for loading or worker interaction.
Electronic limit switches provide an additional layer of safety by preventing the device from starting up. A motorized V-saddle (top right) can move a coil smoothly and adjust it to the pallet before tipping it over. Coil turners are the safest and most efficient way to move a coil from horizontal to vertical, where it is ready for use. The features of this device include 480 VAC power supply for anti-roll coil retaining posts, grooved platform for removing coils with C-hook or 10,000-pound sling, and fork pockets for mobile motor with 480 VAC.
Mechanical reducers are available in standard configurations or can be custom designed for specific applications. A good coil turner will make the dangerous process of manually or overhead crane tilting the coil much simpler.When upending large or heavy coils with a coil upender, there are several important considerations to keep in mind. First, make sure that the platform is properly aligned with the ground for loading or worker interaction. Second, use electronic limit switches for an extra layer of safety.
Third, use a motorized V-saddle to adjust the coil to the pallet before tipping it over. Finally, use a good quality coil turner to simplify the process of tilting the coil manually or with an overhead crane.
