When the Cordless Screwdriver Replaces the Crane
Can you really turn large and heavy workpieces with a cordless screwdriver? Yes, you can. Thanks to the new RUD Tecdos TMB.
The latest innovation from the German drive technology specialist is a novel 2-in-1 combination of industrial workbench and turnover device. It not only allows lightweight and medium-heavy tools to be turned efficiently, but it can also be used to service them directly on the spot, with no loss of time. In addition, the RUD Tecdos TMB saves space and protects the infrastructure in the workshop and during operation.
The new RUD Tecdos TMB has a table size of 80 cm x 80 cm and can accommodate tools and moulds weighing up to 2.5 t. The latest innovation from RUD is ideal for applications in the automotive and packaging industries.
Following the new generation of RUD Tecdos TM turning table and the RUD Tecdos TS tool separator, the new industrial workbench with integrated turning table is now the 3rd innovation from RUD Mold Handling Solutions in just under 2 years.
The impetus for the new development came directly from the market, from the Netherlands in fact.
“In the Benelux countries, tools are generally somewhat smaller and lighter. For the ranges up to 2.5 t, however, there was no appropriate handling solution to date, mostly just ropes and cranes were used. But that's dangerous and not good for the employees' backs either,” explained Anne Kühling, product manager for the Conveyor & Drive division of RUD Ketten Rieger & Dietz GmbH u. Co. KG.
To address this, RUD not only configured its tried-and-tested RUD Tecdos TM turning table somewhat smaller but also integrated an industrial workbench. As a result, both steps (i.e. turning and then working on the tool) can be carried out in one place and on a single piece of equipment – accelerating and optimizing the whole process.
Compact dimensions make the RUD Tecdos TMB particularly space-saving and flexible to use in the factory and workshop. It can be moved using a pallet truck, forklift, or crane.
