Upender Inverter

Air Technical Industries (ATI), of Mentor, Ohio announces the development of a NEW heavy-duty large Upender-Inverter pallet flipper rollover unit with 90° and 180° rotation. This unit was developed for smooth, precision-positioning of large heavy loads, from horizontal to vertical position, or from horizontal to upside down (180°). The unit can be equipped with a roller conveyor so that the load can be guided in automatically, then gently clamped together with the hydraulically-operated scissor platform. The load can then be inverter 180° to the upside-down position and it can then automatically exit on the powered roller conveyor.

The rotation is electro-mechanically operated, driven by a powerful gearbox for reduced speed. The circular structure rides on precision built cam-followers and roller bearings for smooth uniform rotation.

The load can enter and exit from the front or either of the two sides. Larger loads can protrude or overhang on either side if necessary. The platform sizes available are 48″ wide by 48″ deep, 72″ wide by 48″ deep or 96″ wide by 60″ deep with throat openings of 48″, 62″, and 74″, respectively. The units are available in 2,000, 4,000, 6,000, and 10,000 lb. capacities. They are electrically operated with 220/440 volts, 3 phase and controls are 110 volt operated.

The structure is heavy-duty welded steel construction, built for heavy industrial use and is ideal for inverting molds, castings, pallets, plywood sheets, glass, printed materials and other flat surfaces that need to be inverted in the manufacturing process. It can invert 4′ x 8′ x 4′ high stock of material all at once instead of individually inverting one piece at a time. This saves time and prevents the fatigue of physical labor. It will increase production performance in any operation where large materials need to be inverted.
