Pentalift Introduces New Drive-On Ergonomic Bin Tilter
November 2005 - Pentalift Equipment Corporation, Buffalo, NY announces a new Drive-On Ergonomic Bin Tilter, designed to position parts within easy reach of a worker during unloading/loading of containers.
The tilter's platform has a beveled front edge which enables a smooth, effortless entry and exit of a manual pallet truck during the positioning of product container bins onto the tilter. Once the pallet truck is removed, the bin tilter can pivot to a position that is at the optimal, ergonomically-correct height for the worker performing a loading or unloading operation.
According to Pentalift, the bin tilter's ergonomically-correct positioning of part bins at workstations can improve productivity by minimizing bending, reaching, stretching and lifting operations by workers. It also reduces operator fatigue and makes cumulative trauma-type injuries less likely. The easy access also reduces the potential for damage to a product as it is placed into or removed from the container.
Specifications of the Drive-On Ergonomic Bin include:
o available in 2,000 or 4,000 lb. capacities;
o a tilt capability up to 85° and
o platform sizes from 38" x 40" to 50" x 48";
Design features include:
o pre-wired, NEMA-12 motor and push-button controls;
o maintenance-free, lubricated-for-life bearings at all pivot points;
o Pentalift's precision hydraulic cylinder;
o lagging brackets on the frame; and
o an electro-hydraulic power unit, 230, 460/3/60 TENV motor. A 115/1/60 power unit is optionally available.
