MEGA Heavy Rollover Unit for Aerospace Supplier

A customer in the aerospace component manufacturing business was looking for a way to split and invert their dies. These dies being different shapes and size weighing in upwards of 10,000 lbs. The best solution for them was our Upender Inverter. We are able to make t-slots to the top and bottom so retain to the top or bottom of the machine and then dissect the top half from the bottom. They also wanted the ability to completely rotate either the whole die and or top or bottom section. So this machine gave them the ability to perform multiple tasks and was quite the time saver!! The customer was so pleased with this solution that they ultimately bought a 60,000 lbs version, making it the heaviest capacity Upender Inverter that we have ever built!

Flip the Mattress, All of Them

A customer that is in the mattress manufacturing industry was looking for a way to flip their mattresses while in the production process. They wanted an automated type of solution so this way the operator didn’t have to stop what they were working on. We came up with an Upender Inverter that had powered conveyors on the top and bottom along with a programmable logic control system allowing them to have a one-touch operation. The upender detects when the mattress arrives and starts the conveyor, then as soon as the mattress hits the next sensor, the unit would rotates 180 degrees. The upender then feeds off the mattress and returns to the home position once the mattress is off loaded.

Flipping Large Drill Heads

A customer that manufactures big heavy drill bits was looking for an easy way to upend there drill bits. The drill bits could weigh as much as 200 lbs. This was a great solution for our Mini Upender Inverter. We put ball transfer plates on the top and bottom along with guide rails to allow the customer to easily transfer their load on to the Upender and also capture the load. The three headed drill plate had custom flat fixtures on the top and bottom along the load to be balance throughout the process. This solution gave them a much safer and quicker way of doing this operation.
