Press Release Summary:
Stationary Bin Tilter enables operator to lift and tilt bin so that gravity feeding of parts occurs at ergonomically-correct height for worker. Toe clearance allows operator to stand tight against unit. Tilter is available in 2,000 and 4,000 lb capacities with self-contained, 110 V, 1-1/2 hp power pack. Hydraulic velocity fuse, chrome pins with maintenance-free bearings, push-button control, and 3-position lag brackets are also offered.

Pentalift Equipment Corporation Introduces Stationary Bin Tilter
February 2002 - A new lifting-tilting work positioner has been developed by Pentalift Equipment Corporation, Buffalo, NY. The Stationary Bin Tilter enables an operator to lift and tilt a bin so that gravity feeding of parts is accomplished at the optimal, ergonomically-correct height for the worker.
According to Pentalift, the Stationary Bin Tilter is designed to provide ample toe clearance, allowing the operator to stand tight against the unit. A self-contained 110 Volt, 1-1/2 H.P. power pack is standard on both the 2,000 lb. and 4,000 lb. capacity models.
The new bin tilter features Pentalift's exclusive PentaFlow Hydraulic Cylinder, designed to ensure long cylinder life and reduce maintenance. The PentaFlow cylinder is completely sealed and all components are continuously lubricated with fresh oil, eliminating cylinder contamination, deterioration and dead-ending as well as high-stress build-up in the cylinder, equipment structure and hydraulic system.
Other features of the Stationary Bin Tilter include: heavy-duty components for rugged operating conditions; a hydraulic velocity fuse; chrome pins with "lubricated-for-life", maintenance-free bearings at all pivot points; a push-button control; and 3-position lag brackets.
The bin tilter's ergonomically-correct positioning of parts at workstations is said to 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.
