Mentor, Ohio June 6, 2016 – Air Technical Industries (ATI) announces the development of a new “Zero Low” 4-Point Entry Rolls, Reels and Container Upender with 90° tilting capability.
You can load the container upender at zero ground level (for example a cylindrical roll of paper, eye to the sky), load in a vertical position and rotate to horizontal position onto a circular cart in the horizontal position. You can then exit from the front or 90° to the side. The operation can, of course, be performed vice-versa from horizontal to vertical position, (for example roll the load onto the upender sideways and then upend it into the vertical position).
The 90° tilt is electro-mechanically operated for clean room operation. The linear actuator is acme screw operated. The threaded screw is heavy duty and enclosed to keep it clean and protected.
The double reduction gear box is worm gear operated to provide automatic braking to hold the position at any point of the 90° travel. This unit is electrically powered by a 120/240V single phase or 240/480V 3-phase motor. The controls are remote pendants with push button or foot pedal control. The unit is also available hydraulically operated.
Capacity available are 500 lb, 1,000 lb, 2,000 lb, 4,000 lb and 6,000 lb. The deck of the “Zero Low” 4-Point Upender can be square or rectangular, depending on the application. The widths available are 24”, 36”, 42” and 48” with lengths of 36”, 48”, 54”, 60” and 72”. The back up plate is typically the same height as the width.
The “Zero Low” 4-Point Upender is an ideal tool where rolls, reels, coils, boxes and containers any shape can be palletized or placed on carts for transportation. It offers the convenience of loading and unloading from either the front or the side. This unit makes the job easier and safer. It eliminates manual lifting, bending and straining that causes fatigue and injuries.
