We can build the FDL with a stainless steel turning body or with a hot zinc spray rust-protected finish.
As with the FS DC there is a choice of conventional/ramp loaded or floor flush tables and a choice of 1700 or 2000mm maximum jaw openings. The FDL Inverter rotation system has been refined and the entire unit has been built with fewer moving parts, hosing and connections. The whole hydraulic system is housed in a containment enclosure with a smooth easy to clean exterior.
All FDL Inverter machines are painted with two coats of zinc primer and a 2 pack epoxy acrylic top coat as standard.
The FDL is highly versatile but is most commonly used to switch raw materials entering food or pharmaceutical plants to hygienic plastic pallets.
The FDL pallet turner uses a hydraulic geared motor; this makes for a very smooth operation. It has a minimal number of functioning parts so maintenance is almost unnecessary and all the hydraulics are housed in an enclosed rear section to guard against the dangers of leaking oil or dripping grease.
It is most at home working in the “goods inward” section of a pharmaceutical warehouse switching product from wood to clean plastic or aluminium pallets. It can handle bags, glass ampoules, packaging or label reels with equal ease.
