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.
