4) Different types of Motion Energy Source Adopted in Steel Structure Chain Manipulator:

a) Because workpieces are heavy weight steel structure members, majority of Chain type Flipping Equipment adopt with hydraulic oil cylinder, which has immense and sufficient driving force;
b) Chain hoist are also often selected in various types of Steel Structure Chain Manipulator;
c) Rotation of roller chains in these Chain type Overturning Equipment are usually driven with motor reducer;

5) Flexible and Most Suitable Mechanical Structure in Chain type Overturning Equipment:

To accommodate varied working site, process route, characteristics of workpiece, Steel Structure Chain Manipulator come in diversified mechanical structure, and this is why it is always special made case by case: Fixed Box frame structure, Flexible Double gantry frame, Scissor Lifting together with Table Structure, Elevating Worktable, Flat Conveyor type...
