Heavy Duty Upender with Turntable


A customer needed an inspection station for a part. The inspection process required the part to be rotated 90° and additionally be turned 360° before returning to the original orientation and passing down the line for further processing.


An upender was designed to tilt a part 90° for inspection. A manual turntable was built into a gravity roller conveyor on one side to allow for manual movement and inspection on all sides of the part. The upender then tilted it back to the original orientation onto a powered CDLR conveyor and that could transport it in either direction.
