Tilters and Upenders – Heavy-duty Equipment for Material Handling
Tilters and Upenders for manufacturing offers increased ergonomics, safety, and efficiency to the assembly, manufacturing, and maintenance operations of any facility.
Custom-designed and built to meet your specific application requirements, these material handling designs can be engineered to work in multiple industries to assist in simplifying processes. Engineered to perform multiple cycles in punishing environments, these robust additions to your material handling equipment will improve efficiencies and reduce downtime in your facility.
Material Handling Tilters
Material Handling Tilters can come in hydraulic, pneumatic, and electric actuation. An ergonomic solution to many manufacturing and assembly facility concerns, tilters offer quick and easy parts picking. Tilters can also lift and lower product as it is assembled, increasing efficiencies and output. These custom material handling tilters can be engineered as surface or pit mounted depending on what a given facility needs.
Material Handling Upenders
Upenders traditionally operate with a hydraulic system to tip loads of varying weight and size up to 90 degrees. Upenders include a wide variety of industrial applications. They can be loaded and unloaded by forklift, stacker, conveyor, or crane in a surface-mount design or by a pallet truck in a pit-mounted design.
Building Tilters and Upenders
Built to order, Handling Specialty Upenders are built with robust components and reinforced steel to withstand the harsh environments and demanding cycles they are designed to operate in.
The quality of the components used is matched by the quality of the Upender’s construction. Each Upender is 3D modelled prior to fabrication to undergo stress tests and determine the best possible design for the specific application solution. The platform decks are reinforced with ribbed steel by AWS-certified welders, and the cylinders, motor, and pump are mounted in an efficient manner.
Why Choose a Tilter or Upender?
Many of these units will include handheld controls for ease of use to complement the equipment’s operator panel. Handheld controllers offer flexibility to the operator allowing them to move around the equipment as it is loaded or unloaded. Both material handling tilters and up-enders can be positioned in the facility precisely as the customer requires, and if there is clearance on every side, the operator can move around the equipment, enjoying a 360-degree view. This also allows 360-degree accessibility to the technician working on the product secured to the up-ender or tilter.
Handling Specialty accommodates unique material handling requirements with custom-designed platform sizes, shapes, tooling, degrees of motion, and surface mounts.
When looking for the perfect material handling tilter or Upender, consider a company that has been designing/building for nearly 60 years and discover what great looks like.
