Spool rolls are a great option if you have an application where the end product is restricted in space and rotating mechanisms are needed. A spool roll is typically made of fiberglass or polyester. Cradle rolls up the material spooling onto it, with the help of machined steel rollers and electric motor powered gear drives. Depending on the model, there can be one or two sprockets to give the cradle its rotations.
Features of standard upenders:
1 Carries 3,000-100,000 pounds
2 The bottom plate is made of steel
3 They have a full steel bottom plate which provides great lateral stability and eliminates the need for shims.
4 Single or double drive chains with a drive gearbox and single speed motor.
5Fully enclosed right angle drive gearbox with one (1) open gearset guarded with a disc brake.
6 The platforms of the upender cradle both support the load and interface with the handling device; in the case of coil handling, the coil rests on a steel V-saddle.
7One of the main benefits of upenders is its ability to pivot about its own vertical axis which makes for a great advantage when handling coils, but also enables them to be used in situations where an overhead crane cannot be installed.
The spool roll upender is a common all over the world in the handling of heavy materials. The demand for increased safety and efficiency are driving manufacturers to look for new ways to flip these massive objects. Overtime cranes or forklifts are widely used to flip a heavy object, but FHOPE has a customized solution.
