Industrial Turntable with Tilt Positions
Designed for the high production of the automobile industry, these industrial turntables are equipped with two tilt tables to ergonomically tilt the container bins toward the worker, while the second tilt table is collapsed and exposed to the isle for loading/unloading of fork truck. The goal here was to always have the product waiting on the assembly worker and never have the worker waiting on the product. The assembler/operator simply lowers the bin, rotates the turntable, manual or power assisted, and tilts the awaiting bin to a comfortable angle. Foot pedal or hand pendant controlled.
Also available as an Air Bearing Turn Table.
Pit-mounted industrial turntables are desired for low height applications involving loading the unit by conveyor or driven upon. The unit pictured left, turning the excavator, includes a "pit-ring" that protects the concrete curb surface and also adds support to the edge of the turntable when driven on. Air bearing turn tables work great in floor level applications since the air bearings provide about an inch of lift, establishing clearance during rotation
and positive stop & support during loading/unloading. Most air bearing
turntables can be manually rotated. Air bearing turn tables are supported
underneath and can be driven upon when not in use. Once the air bearing
turntable is energized, it lifts approximately 3/4" and the top plate and
load can be easily rotated on a thin film of air.
OR RESIDENTIAL USE
We have developed several residential turntables for rotating vehicles in driveways. The unit above was one of 2 built for an industrial
application and has the capability of being remote controlled and rotated 360°, positioning within ± 1/2° of accuracy.
Also available with air casters.
At ABB Norsk Kabel A/S in Norway, three Solving air film carousels are used for the manufacture of
umbilicals. With the use of air bearings, the plants floor loading was reduced,
resulting in large savings in building cost .
