Upenders completely re-position the load from its side to its end “Eye to the Sky”. Tips up to 90°. Our custom design capabilities have included fitting the lift with v-decks and other custom fixtures to hold special sizes and loads.
High Hinge Dumper are tilters that capture debris and have a higher pivot point from a regular tilter which makes it dump its load or contents.
Flip flops are commonly used for heavy loads for which the center of gravity must stay within the center line of the load, so as not to cause damage to the load.
All in one tilt and lift equipment (Tilt Lift) simultaneously lifts and tilts the load creating an efficient system especially in environments where operation, footprint and accessibility are limited.
This style tilter is designed to operate within its footprint; not intruding into the work space or forcing the worker back during operation. The worker can stand right up to the platform, and as the tilt begins, the platform draws back therefore not taking away any of the works space.
Autoquip’s configurations of tilters range from a predetermined degree of tilt like 30, 45, 90, 180 degrees, or anywhere in between.
Autoquip offers 3 types of actuation to operate the movement of our tilt equipment: Hydraulic, Mechanical, and Pneumatic.
Hydraulic actuation works by pressurized fluid in cylinders that work to tilt the platform in a preset degree of tilt. The hydraulic tilter is most commonly used and Autoquip can provide custom solutions in a variety of configurations and capacities with this type of actuation to fit any customers tilting requirements.
Autoquip can custom fit tilters with electro-mechanical actuation for operations where hydraulics cannot be used. Most common is an electrical operated linear actuator or ball screw drive. Ball screw actuation provides a great electro-mechanical tilting solution for applications requiring automation, longevity, and repeatability. Tilt equipment with this type of actuation are designed to provide zero load drift at any degree. The screw actuator is mounted at the base of the tilt and is driven through a gear reducer and powered by an electric motor as it pushes against a connection point on the platform for the tilting operation.
Pneumatic actuation for tilters use an air bag or use air powered - hydraulic power unit to compress air to operate the tilt movement. Shop air is connected for the operation and can be controlled with either a foot or hand valve for the tilt and return functions.
