Machines used to safely assemble and disassemble motors reducing the time a crane is used. Single worker operation with no damage to components.
CAM’s DG UPENDER is designed to support and position railway traction motors for faster and more efficient motor disassembly and assembly. It is constructed with steel channel and angle, covered with heavy gauge sheet metal. The table rotates on a polished shaft that is supported by permanently lubricated bushings. Diamond plate steel covers the top that becomes the work platform when the table is in the up position.
A ball screw jactuator with an electric brake motor ensures smooth and positive motion throughout the travel of the table.
DGW Motor Upender
The DGW Motor Upender is a heavyduty version with the capacity to support the weight of a complete railway traction motor with wheel set, pinion and armature. The motor is positioned across the table with the support nose through the opening of the vertical table and the wheels toward the step on the base. This provides easy access to the axle caps, pinion housing, frame end bells, and motor leads. The table works through an arc of 90 degrees for comfortable access to any part.
The DGL Upender is designed for the easy handling of locomotive generators and alternators. It will support and rotate the stator during repair, winding, or assembly and disassembly operations.
TU Armature Upender
TU Armature Upender is for the assembly and disassembly of seals, bearings, retainers and most other parts of a traction armature.
RTU Rotor Upender
The RTU is used to flip an AC rotor as part of the ring brazing operation. The shaft is not installed The operator removes the rotor from the Brazing Machine to load it into the RTU. The rotor is placed against the vertical cradle and held in position with a heat resistant strap. The RTU tilts 90°. The operator uses control levers to move the cradle with the rotor away from the table. Another lever activates the turntable to swing the rotor 180°. The cradle is then moved back to rest the rotor on the table. The RTU is tilted to place the rotor vertically so it can be moved back to the brazing station. All movements are powered so the operator does not have to touch the hot rotors.
Upender Machine FEATURES
Optional Safety Interlock Belt secures the motor frame to the table. It must be fastened to operate table.
A two button, self-retracting, hand held pendant activates a control circuit that is designed so that upon release of either button, motion of the table immediately stops. But, if either button is held depressed, a limit switch will stop the table at end of its travel.
