Impressed with the level of communication between teams during this project. Project management and delivery met all of the requirements expected by the team and we will definitely work with Handling Specialty in the future.

Allen Kettle - Tradewood Industries

Whenever I contacted anyone from Handling Specialty I was answered within one business day, if nothing else to let me know they were working on it and to give me an estimated deadline. The MGV we purchased runs extremelly well and is very appealing which was one of the necessary requirements as it is located in an area with high visibility. The MGV is a very simple application that was intuitively integrated and required no formal installation or training.

Handling Specialty handled our customer's continuous change in direction quite well. Will use HSML again and again.

Why choose a Head stock/Tail stock over a Rotator?

  • A rotator only spins about the vertical axis.  A rotator provides NO access to the bottom or fixtured side of the part. 
  • Rotating about the horizontal axis – coupled with a custom fixture design – a HS-TS provides clear access to the top, bottom, front and back of the part.
  • In a welding application, welds are presented to the operator with optimal weld positioning, torch access, torch angles and resulting in improved quality.  
  • A rotator will not provide the same flexibility. Vertical welds will always be vertical welds on a rotator while a HS-TS will translate vertical position welds to an optimal flat or horizontal position.
  • In an all applications [inspection, assembly, cleaning, etc] the part is rotated into the worker envelope, reducing ergonomic concerns, increasing productivity and up-time
