Mechanical Upender

The West Bend Equipment mechanical upender offers a cost-effective means of upending coils or other heavy and bulky loads.

Mechanical upenders are used to rotate steel coils and other cubic loads though 90 degrees. West Bend Equipment upenders are custom engineered for your particular application to up-end or down-end any coil, die or heavy product. Mechanical upenders are built with a cylindrical shaped cradle that is placed on four machined rollers, and is rotated by means of a gear motor. They usually have two platforms that are square and of equal size on either side of the machine.

  • Standard design from 1,000 to 100,000 pounds capacity
  • Flat platforms or V-saddles to support coils in a horizontal orientation
  • Special platform sizes and shapes available
  • 180-degree base rotation
  • Pallet centering
