The tote bin tipper is constructed from Grade 304 stainless steel and is fully TIG welded throughout. Lifting with the tote bin tipper is achieved by a ¾” Simplex chain driven by a motor gearbox mounted at the top of the main column. This tote bin tipper is designed to be bolted to the floor.
Safety Guard to PD 5304:2005 Safety of Machinery
The safety guard is constructed from 40 x 40 x 3mm stainless steel box section and 3mm wire, 40mm aperture stainless steel weld mesh to meet the requirements of PD 5304:2005 Safety of Machinery. It encloses the tote bin tipper to a height of 2200mm on two sides, 1400mm at the front, with a hinged door on the fourth side. The guard door is electrically and mechanically interlocked preventing the tote bin tipper from operating with the door open. In addition, the guard door can only be opened when the lifting carriage is at the full down position. The tote bin tipper control system has provision for a ‘Call for Product’ signal to be connected.
Tote Bin Tipper Application Story
This tote bin tipper was a low level tipper designed to load various loose leaf salads into a vibratory conveying system. Having enclosed the tote bin tipper with a safety guard, it was possible to automate the tipping cycle so that the operator could load and bin, send it to full tip and during this time could be usefully employed on another task.
