Title: C7 Flipper at OP10
Author: Bezri, Bilal; Maguire, Woody
Abstract: In this paper we present a new design for flipping a 250 pounds cylinder head 90 degrees. The device was designed in response to a safety hazard where workers were flipping large cylinder heads manually. The design uses the force of gravity to flip the part around a pivot point. In this design the worker no longer needs to put physical effort into the actual flipping of the cylinder head. The worker will only need to place the part on the device using the overhead crane that is already provided at that station, then release the latch whereby potential gravity is utilized to turn the part smoothly onto the conveyer.
