Innovative workbench

02 November 2021

CAN YOU turn moulds, tools and large workpieces weighing up to 2.5 tonnes with a cordless screwdriver?

You can with the RUD Tecdos TMB Tool Mover Workbench. It is a 2-in-1 combination of workbench and turnover device. It allows lightweight and medium-heavy tools to be turned efficiently, but it can also be used to service them on the spot. In addition, the RUD Tecdos TMB saves space and protects the infrastructure in the workshop and during operation. With low weight and compact dimensions, it can be used flexibly throughout the plant.

The new RUD Tecdos TMB has a table size of 80 x 80cm and can accommodate tools and moulds weighing up to 2.5 tonnes.

“Users have been faced with a dilemma, especially in this weight class – because most parts are simply too heavy to be handled manually, but a crane is also not an efficient solution for something weighing just 2.5 tonnes. This is no longer necessary because our new Tool Mover Workbench makes it so simple to turn the piece using just a cordless screwdriver,” explains Anne Kühling, product manager for the conveyor & drive division of RUD.

The turnover device integrated in the workbench is designed to axially rotate tools and machine components of up to 2.5 tonnes. This ensures that even the heaviest loads can be rotated and turned over reliably and safely. The turning takes place at the centre of gravity of the load and is therefore absolutely smooth and safe. The cordless screwdriver is connected using a special plug-in attachment. The turning table is equipped with the high-end Tecdos drive system that ensures perfect rotation during the turning process.
