Tilting Applications

The ability to tilt or rotate components can prove challenging especially as the part grows in complexity, size and or weight.

Fortunately, there are various methods for accomplishing this task:


Upenders are floor mounted devices that provide a safe means of rotating large or heavy objects.  Once the part is positioned inside the platen, the unit is engaged until the desired rotation is accomplished.  Adequate floor space is generally required due to their relative size.

Drum Actuated Tilters

Drum actuated tilters are an innovative solution for part rotation.  This versatile solution incorporates specially designed slings to cradle the component being tilted.  As the drum spins, the slings move in unison to gently rotate the part.  These units are typically mounted to a hoist suspended from a crane system.

Turnover Hoists

While most hoists are used for lifting, Turnover hoists as their name suggests offer rotation by means of two connection points.  As one side goes down the goes up providing a turn over motion to rotate your product. It is important to note that turnover hoists need to be as they do not provide lifting capability on their own.
