Plastic Industry Forum - Converse with Plastics Processing Leaders / Equipment / 25-40 ton mold tipper --- looking to purchase new or used
Posted:  21 Feb 2012 22:32
We are in the process of gearing up a new facility and need to buy a mold tipper. I am interested in new and/or used. Our largest mold will weigh approximately 87,000 lbs and we intend to handle it in halves - heaviest side is 43,000 lbs.
Pls respond via email if you have a mold tipper / upender / crane hook tilter for sale please! Thank you.

You may want to check out Kawaguchi America. They have a mold tipper, however, it may not be able to be used with a 43,000 lb piece of steel, not real sure of their specifications.

They were unable to exhibit at last year's MAPP Benchmarking Conference because we were sold out.

This might be a resource for you.
