What is an upender or tipper
An upender or tipper is used in a variety of applications and is a great alternative to a weld positioner. They are typically used in servicing injection molds to lay the mold down for an overhead crane to split them vertically. It’s also used in upending coils to allow handling via a c-hook through the coil ID. Their primary function is to upend or downend a load to a 90-degree angle. This makes changing positions to transport or service the load far more efficient. Tippers or upenders are easy to integrate with any material handling system.
Industries That Use a 90º Upender or Mechanical Tipper
An upender is used to safely rotate a load 90 degrees. They’re used in a number different industries including:
- Die Splitter w/ 180º rotation
- Coil handling
- Injection Mold Maintenance
- Forging applications
- Industry dealing with steel or aluminum
Green Valley Manufacturing’s upender line is designed to turn wide stacks of products or extremely heavy loads including coils, molds, and more. Industries that work with steel, aluminum and other heavy materials can benefit from mechanical tippers and upenders, as they protect workers and improve efficiency.
An upender is an important addition to any factory floor. You can easily tip steel, aluminum and other types of coils or molds using this equipment. Your employees won’t have to handle any loads, helping you avoid workplace accidents, tool damage, time off and compensation claims.
A Safer Way to Handle Heavy Loads
The main benefit of using a coil tipper or upender is safety. Working with any heavy load introduces the potential accidents or injuries. With an upender, staff doesn’t have to turn loads manually or using unsafe means. This results in less chance of an accident — which can interrupt your productivity, damage your products, coils, and molds, or lead to costly liability issues. Our equipment features easy-to-use motorized controls that can be automated for increased convenience.
Streamline Your Workflow with a Coil Upender
