The Flip-Rite® Handling System’s power slings gently lift and rotate objects. The slings enclose the center of gravity providing a controlled, stable motion. Optional features may include the Level-Rite®, a powered load leveling device or custom fixtures for turning highly irregular shapes.
Separating, rotating & re-assembling die sets is always a problem. With the Flip-Rite®, you can accomplish all operations faster anywhere there is overhead crane service. You can separate and rotate the die set right on the press, eliminating transfers to the tool room for a simple repair or tool change.
The proper welding position in any fabrication process is always an important consideration. With the Flip-Rite®, you can rotate the workpiece so all welding can be performed in a “down hand” position, improving weld quality. The result is labor efficiency, production time savings and realistic employee ergonomics.
With the Flip-Rite®, you can rotate trailer frames so that rear wheel assemblies (bogies) can be lowered onto the frame from overhead. Trailer manufacturers have used this method to achieve a faster & better method for carrying out welding and assembly procedures. An extra bonus is the ergonomic benefit to employees.
Repairing concrete is almost as costly as manufacturing it. Much damage to concrete occurs as a result of wrangling the shape on the ground. The Flip-Rite® Handling System will reduce the need for costly repairs and significantly increase handling speed.
When machining an expensive engine block, you want to avoid damaging it while moving or rotating it between operations. With the Flip-Rite®, the positioning can be done gently and precisely. It only takes the push of a button to move or rotate any size part from 100 lbs to over 100 tons.
The Flip-Rite® has been used to rotate 30 ton railroad cars and locomotive truck assemblies. There are many systems in operation turning a variety of railroad equipment and assemblies including fuel tanks, hopper cars, gondolas, ore cars and tamper frames.
Because the headroom was limited, ITNAC® engineered a system to rotate a railroad car during assembly by using two fixtures mounted in the main frame rail. The rotation fixtures were engineered and manufactured by ITNAC®. We supplied the complete system, Flip-Rite®, and Radio Control and Rotation Fixtures for a “turn-key” system. Note that the railroad car is very close to the floor and the Flip-Rite® module is below the roof of the railroad car. It was truly a challenge that was completed successfully. We currently have systems turning all forms of railroad cars.
The Flip-Rite® Handling System has also been successfully used to turn: Airplane Wings, Trailer Tanks, Boiler Tanks, Boats, Conveyor Sections, Bridge I-Beams, Bundles of Sheet Metal, Composite Panels, Satellites, Dump Bodies, Glass, Mining Buckets, Truck Frames and MUCH, MUCH MORE!
