Made to Stand Up to Constant Use.

Our upenders are made of robust reinforced welded steel construction. They are driven by a gear motor which drives a dual chain sprocket which enables rotation. The cradle has two flat platforms. Heavy-duty sealed bearings help the rollers support the load. A brake motor and gear reducer provide a smooth rotating cycle without jerking or sudden speed changes which could destabilize the load.



No Leaky Hydraulics

We use an electric-powered gear motor that drives a dual chain sprocket which provides smooth and safe rotation. There is no messy and leaking hydraulics to deal with.

Die Upender Safety



A Mechanical Locking Pin For Worker Safety is Standard

Die updenders or flippers are heavy machines with heavy tables. Our MDR Series features mechanical safety pins which are locked during machine cleaning and maintenance. Electronic limit switches provide a secondary layer of safety lock confirmation that disables the upender from stating up.



Added Protection

Our MDR Series is available with optional safety rails on both ends for added protection and safety .

Die Upender Safety Laser Scanner



Active Laser Scanner

Our MDR Series is also available with an optional safety laser scanner that uses time-of-flight technology. In real time, the scanner calculates position based on the time it takes for the laser to bounce off an object and return to the unit. If anyone or anything approaches the predefined zone the Die Upender stops. The zones are fully definable and programmable. An optional camera is also available to record what triggered the shut down.



Add an Extra Layer of Surface Protection

Our upenders are available with optional removable polycarbonate table surface covers which are screwed into the metal table surface. These reduce damage to the upender table surface and to die / mold surfaces.

More Flexibility

Our MDR Series is also available with an optional 180 degree rotating base. With a rotating base, the need for manual handling and repositioning of heavy dies is significantly reduced. This leads to faster turnaround times and improved workflow efficiency in manufacturing and maintenance operations. The rotating base ensures stable and controlled movement of the die, which enhances overall safety during the handling process.



Use It Where You Need It

Our upenders are available with optional base designed for frequent forklift transport from one location to another. This is especially handy when you want to upend dies or molds in multiple locations in your facility.
