Working with bins of bulk product can often be challenging for the machine operator. The challenges arise because of the repetitive bending and stretching required reaching down into the bin to load or unload components. In this application consider if the product bin is first loaded onto an industrial hydraulic tilter. Under operator control the bin can now be tilted into the most ergonomically correct and comfortable position for the operator to retrieve or place the components in the bin. Tilters are also often used during the manufacturing assembly process. When production planners address ergonomic, safety and productivity topics it is not uncommon for components to be added to an assembly in a tilted position, assembly then lowered, packaged and prepared for shipping or sent to the next assembly cell. The most common tilters use a hydraulic or pneumatic operating system and tilt up to 45 degrees. Custom tilters or work positioners are also available to suit a wide range of applications.
