Turn Over Devices (TOD)

Turn Over Devices (TOD)


Frequently in engineering companiescome across situations where the job has to be tilted or turn over to a particular position. Repetitively doing this type of work results in operator fatigue and can cause accidents. Impression Systems custom-built turn over devices for material handling as per the customer requirement can handle these repetitive tasks with ease & precisions without any production delay.


What is Turn Over Devices (TOD)?

Turn over devices (commonly referred to as TOD) are material handling equipment which usually facilitates one or more combination of different movements like Lifting, Tilting and Turning for components to make various manufacturing processes like Welding, Cutting, Drilling, Machining, Assembly, Painting, etc more accessible for both humans, robot and machine alike.

The TOD's can be controlled automatically or manually based on the level of automation desired by the user. Manual operation of this equipment is feasible by the use of Radio(wireless) remote, fixed operator interface like HMI, Push buttons, etc. TOD's can also be programmed to follow any predefined motion sequence as desired by the user depending on the application by using a PLC system. For robotic applications, the various axes of the turn over devices have to be programmed for precise positioning and servomotor is used to achieve the desired positioning.

Impression systems have supplied turn over devices with capacity ranging from 2 Tons to 30 Tons to different Indian business segments like construction equipment industry for Excavator manufacturing (SANY in Pune) & assembly to heavy engineering industry to automobile.
