For use in electrostatically protected areas (EPA’s). Proper electrostatic discharge (ESD) grounding of the fixture must be a part of the overall EPA design. (See Technical section discussion on ESD.
Krytox GPL 207 (L1) – The trunnions and caster swivel bearings are lubricated with Krytox GPL 207. Note that this lubricant comes standard on “C” (Clean Room) finish and does not need to be specified.
Braycote 601EF (L2) – The trunnions and caster swivel bearings are lubricated with Braycote 601EF.
A battery can be added to power the electro-mechanical lift fixtures. This reduces the need for a power cable to be plugged in during use. This may be useful in areas where cables pose a trip hazard, get in the way, or where electrical outlets are far away. The control box will periodically need to be plugged in to re-charge the battery. The operator can expect to get approximately 5-10 (depending on model) full stroke up/down cycles under max load before charging is necessary. Under lighter loads or partial stroke, the battery can go much longer before charging is necessary. There are light bars on the unit that indicate remaining capacity.
Forklift tubes are bolted to the bottom of the end frames and span the length of the fixture. They are designed with a stiffener I-beam welded to the top of the forklift tubes so that the forks do not need to span the entire length of the fixture if long enough forks are not available. It is critical that the forks extend at least two feet past the combined fixture and payload CG. If you are unsure of how long the forks need to be for your application, please contact Flotron. The forklift tubes are compatible with all the 600 series. The forklift tube option can be retrofitted on existing Flotron Rotation Fixtures.
1.4 bolt-on Leveling Jacks allow for leveling of load while in a stationary position. Orientation of jack handles relative to the frame must be specified. See the JACK HANDLE ORIENTATION TABLE below to determine which handle orientation suits your application. Codes J1 through J4 are shown. Code J0, which is not shown, is for jack mounting plates only but does not include jacks. The J0 option allows for future addition of jacks. The Jacks have 1″ of rise for each 8 turns of the crank handle.
The push bar is mounted underneath the gearbox and improves ergonomics of intra-facility transport of the Flotron. The combination of having swivel locks engaged on the rear casters and a handle for leverage can make a huge difference to ease transportation. The gearbox mounted push bar can be retrofitted on existing Flotron Rotation Fixtures.
Indexed @ 15° increments to prevent trunnion rotation with a lock pin. An Index plate can be supplied with either of the mounting interfaces, shown below or the SA10 angle interface.
1. Angle Interface (SA10) – The Angle Interface offers the most adaptability for customers. Either of the 2″ perpendicular surfaces of the angle may be bolted or clamped to. The standard length is 10 inches with no bolt holes. The standard finish is clear zinc plate.
2. Angle Interface (SB10) – The Angle Interface offers the most adaptability for customers. Either of the 2″ perpendicular surfaces of the angle may be bolted or clamped to. The standard length is 10 inches with 4 bolt holes, see drawing down below. The standard finish is clear zinc plate.
3. Mounting Plate Interface (1018) – The part-to-be-handled can be easily bolted to this flange type interface. The standard size is 2″ by 12.5″ with a slotted-hole bolt pattern centered on the plate. The four holes will accept up to ¼” diameter bolts. The standard finish is clear zinc plate.
4. Board Clamp Interface (1023) – The Board Clamp Interface is a 10″ long 2″ x 2″ angle with two screw clamps. It is very convenient for harness boards and similar shaped loads.
PTFE composite plain bearing is placed between the trunnion shafts and bearing housings on both vertical risers. The bearings are self-lubricating and therefore do not require any maintenance, prevent wear of the trunnions, and lower rotational friction. This option is recommended when rotational duty cycles are high (frequent rotation), when there is a long interface distance (over 100”), or when the payload is relatively flexible and sags in the middle.
B“XXX” = Distance in inches between interface mounts measured from inside vertical surfaces of mounts (within the range below).
Lengths shorter than the MIN shown above can be dangerous due to tip over. Lengths longer than MAX shown above require a special beam. While the two End Frames can be adjusted toward each other to accommodate smaller length parts, excessively long beams with a small part will leave the Main Beams extending from each End Frame enough to be inconvenient or a trip hazard. It therefore is desirable to order the Main Beam close to the size of the actual part-to-be-handled.
TB1 – Telescopic Main Beams adjust from 66″ to 104″ between Trunnion Interface Mounts. They will do this without extending beyond the End frames. They can be adjusted down to 26″ between Interface mounts by letting them extend beyond the End frames.
TB2 – Same setup as TB1 option with a range of 105”-140”
Proof Load Test Procedure:
Dead weight load (no rotation), visual inspection.
A deliverable proof load test report will be provided. The report will include a summary of the test procedure, actual measured weight of load applied, visual inspection results, and images of the test being performed.
If a standard holding fixture does not meet your requirements, contact Flotron about custom modifications. Often, minor modifications to a standard unit are all you will need and can be done cost effectively.
