Turners for casting beds

Concrete equipment


A turner is special equipment designed for horizontal moulding of concrete panels in steel moulds installed onto it and for the further tilting of the products. The change of the load’s position in space is due to the rotary mechanism and the hydraulic drive of the turner, which allows convenient and safe removal of reinforced concrete products from the mould.
Turners manufactured by M-Konstruktor comply with the Russian state standards GOST 25781-83, GOST 27204-87, GOST 25878-85.

Description and operation of a turner for casting beds

A turner for casting beds consists of the following main assembly elements:
Part 1—Underframe
It is a bearing element of a turner. Steel moulds are installed onto it. An underframe is pivotally connected to the support beams and the hydraulic cylinder and rigidly (by welding) connected to the longitudinal side abutments.
Part 2—Support beams
Support beams are support elements of a turner. They are mounted onto a prepared level surface and then welded to insert plates. Support beams are pivotally connected to the hydraulic cylinder and to the welded underframe.
Part 3—Abutments on the lateral sides of steel moulds
These are restraining elements for the installed steel moulds.
Part 4—Telescopic cylinders
Single-acting hydraulic cylinders turn a turner to the set angle. The lowering of a turner occurs under its own weight.
Part 5—Safety chain
Prevents a turner from tipping over at an angle greater than the maximum possible one.
The delivery package also includes a control panel and two limit switches. The limit switches are built into the circuit as fuses. They limit the extreme lower and extreme upper positions of a turner and are triggered when the tilting angle of a turner is equal to 78º. A turners’s safety chain is designed for this angle.

The procedures for working with a turner

Install a steel mould (with a finished concrete product that has gained its stripping strength) on a turner. Fix the mould with clamps.
Open the sides of the mould, fix them open.
Hydraulic cylinders will ‘open’ a turner.
Fix a turner in the extreme open position.
Remove the finished product from the steel mould and transfer it with the help of lifting equipment.
Remove the clamps, close the sides of the mould.
Open the solenoid valve. Lower a turner.
Repeat the cycle.
