The handling and rotation of heavy and expensive tools can cause a range of issues including damage to costly tools, damage to hoist brakes and ropes and it can put the operator’s safety at risk. The RUD Tool-mover provides a safe solution to these problems.
The Tool-Mover is a device that helps to ensure safety when handling and rotating heavy plant and injection moulding tools. It is equipped with a frequency controlled drive, which ensures an even and smooth drive from start to finish, and means that the device can be stopped in any position, securely – even if power to the unit is cut.
The Tool-Mover can be positioned in the most appropriate location in the facility as it does not need to be bolted to the floor and is very compact. It can easily be moved with lifting points, a crane or a forklift truck.
