Here, a floating assembly line utilizes custom-designed and custom-built air caster transporters to move combine heads from one assembly station to the next. The built-in “Pac-Man” upenders provide the option to rotate each head to the desired angle, allowing workers to more easily access the underside for a customized, ergonomic work environment.
Turntables bring efficiency to your production line. Designed to perform effortlessly while floating and moving the maximum loads, there is a turntable configuration that will fit seamlessly into your process flow, either single-position, two-position, four-position or a multiple-position turntables, each with a capacity range of 1,000 lbs. and up.
