Item turners for:
- Pallets (also to use in cold stores)
- Fragile items
Item turner for pallets
This item turner is designed to give good ergonomic conditions for operators working at a cold store. It also causes a streamlined workflow at the production.
Palletized items are transported through roller conveyors or are delivered by a forklift to the item turner. The stack is being held tight while the item turner rotates backward 95 degrees. The stack is loosened slightly and layers or pallets can be removed between the items. The item turner will then move back to the starting point and the stack of items is retrieved by forklift again, or transported further trough roller conveyor system.
Item turners are constructed with materials and electrical components that can handle freezing temperatures in order to be suitable for cold stores.
180 degrees stack turner
A stack of (palletized) items are transported to the stack turner. Here the stack is being held tight, while the stack is turned around 180 degrees and transported further again. A stack turner is also available on a shuttle car.
180 degrees plate turner
Plate turner designed with the purpose to give the operator good ergonomic conditions and avoid heavy lifts. The illustrated plate turner lifts and rotates heavy steel plates. In order to avoid damaging the plate during transport and lift, there are mounted chains that gently handles the plates.
Item turner for careful handling of special plates
This item turner is special made for handling expensive carbon plates that does not tolerate damages. Therefore the plate is being held tight by suction cups and rubber straps. The suction cups can be activated individually.
The item turner is lifted up and down by mean of two pillar that are parallel controlled. The frame where the plate s being held tight too, can be rotated in a position that is desired. To prevent the frame moving in the stopped position, a disc brake is activated.
