Mechanical Upenders - Stock Reels

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

Mechanical upenders can rotate steel coils and other cubic loads though 90 degrees. West Bend Equipment mechanical upenders are available in standard configurations or may be custom engineered for your particular application to up-end or down-end your load. West Bend mechanical upenders have a cylindrical shaped cradle that is placed on four machined rollers. Rotation is achieved with a gear motor driving a single or dual chain sprocket.

Available design features for mechanical upenders include:

  • Standard designs from 3,000 to 100,000 pounds capacity
  • Custom designs with capacities up to 120 tons (109,090 kg)
  • Flat platforms or V-saddles to support coils in a horizontal orientation
  • Special platform sizes and shapes available
  • Optional 180-degree base rotation which eliminates fork truck repositioning
  • Pallet centering
  • Gravity or powered conveyors which allow integration with the production line
