Roll/Coil Handling Triples Output

I was working with a customer who was needing to handle rolls of plastic & upend them 90 degrees. The individual rolls were about 20” in diameter weighing about 2,000 lbs when stacked and were facing in the horizontal orientation. The customer wanted to load multiple skids at a time. We were able to modify our crate positioner upender to do just that. We made the platform wider to fit all 3 pallets and also put a v shaped retaining plate on it to help retain the load while upending. This solution would help increase productivity considerably as they were only able to do one at a time with an over head crane. The upender is hydraulically operated electrically powered and can also be powered by air.

Customer finds ATI’s Zero-Low Crate Positioner to be ergonomic answer

This customer was looking for a safer more ergonomic way to both remove and insert parts into a container with fork-pockets on the bottom. For a long time they were just bending over and over throughout the day to get their work done. As of late they have had a couple of strains and pulled muscles.

They did not have much money in their budget and turned to Air Technical Industries to help find a solution. After running through a few options it was determined that an inexpensive solution could solve their dilemma. Keeping the cost down ATI recommended a standard product the Zero-Low Crate Positioner.

The Zero-Low Crate Positioner has capacities up to 4000 pounds (standard models), up to 60 degree tilt and can raise crate to different working heights. The retaining plate is adjustable to different heights as well; when table is tilted up to 60 degrees, the load is at the proper level for easy access by the user.

Serves as an economical “lift” table. Designed to lift loads up to 36 inches high without a more costly scissor lift mechanism attached. Lowers to zero ground level for easy loading and unloading with a two wheel dolly or pallet truck.

In the end the workers became more efficient and less prone to injury. Even though they were looking for an economical solution they paid for their purchase of the Zero-Low Crate Positioner in the first month after delivery. That is a great ROI.

Custom Upender assists in Enclosure Assembly

A customer who was in the electrical enclosure business had an application where they needed to upend an enclosure coming out of a paint room. There was certain instances when the enclosure need not be upended and just rolled out in it’s current orientation. This was an easy solution for our Zero Low upender with gravity rollers and the modification to have an independent back up plate. The customer also wanted the lowered height of the Zero Low Upender to be 10”. This is why the Zero low style was of great benefit to them. After it exited the upender it needed to be adjusted in height, so we also provided them with a low profile hydraulic scissors lift table with a gravity roller mounted on top. These ergonomic solutions helped them at the final packaging stage of their process and they will greatly benefit from Air Technical’s products.
