Does your company need a coil dump truck or a coil dump truck? Why take the risk of your employees suffering injuries or that valuable material will be damaged? Press Room Equipment Company's heavy-duty coil turners offer a safe and simple method of turning coils 90 degrees without the use of hooks, slings or cranes. Vertical swingers are necessary to change rolls and coils from one orientation to another. Easily switch from “eye to the sky” to “eye to the horizon” or vice versa without damaging the roll. An approach that has been taken to address the problem of overturning steel coils and the like is exemplified in U.
S. Patent No. 4,845,919. Alternatively, the apparatus can simply transport the coil from one place to another, while the coil remains in a vertical position where its axis is vertical. In the past, devices designed to overturn steel coils and other heavy objects used to be expensive and bulky. This was partly due to the fact that considerable power was required for the dumping operation, along with a heavily constructed support structure.
In this patent, an apparatus is described in which the weight of the coil or other similar products is used to provide the force necessary for the turning operation, so that no other source of energy is required to rotate the products or to return the apparatus to its original position after rotating the product. The subframe includes support means for coupling under a coil whose axis is vertical, and an elongated clamping chuck arranged so as to be parallel to the axis of a coil, at one end of which the support medium is attached. The horizontal axis in which the subframe pivots with respect to the main frame is substantially aligned with the center of gravity of the subframe when a coil of medium weight and size is transported, which reduces the work required by the power tools to positively pivot the subframe and the coil around said horizontal axis. Naturally, there is a considerable variation in the weight and size of the coil and, therefore, the exact coincidence of the axis 34 with the center of gravity of the combination will be rare. For example, the device is unable to pick up a coil and move it from one place in one plant to another, with the option of spinning the coil during transport. Coils are generally shipped with their vertical axis and removed from transport vehicles (usually trucks) with a bifurcated accessory suspended on a crane.
This accessory moves the coil to a stationary coil at the top and, when turned over, coils are normally moved to storage or coil processing equipment with another crane accessory. From helical wagons to roll-up machines and tilting tables, AEC has a product that fits almost any application. With their heavy-duty coil turners, you can safely turn coils 90 degrees without using hooks, slings or cranes. Easily switch from “eye to sky” orientation to “eye to horizon” orientation or vice versa without damaging your roll.
