Robotix turning unit:
Easily position heavy loads up to 14,000 kg

The Robotix turning unit from DEMMELER can be used to move long and heavy workpieces into the ideal position for welding and assembly work so that they can be lifted and lowered or turned in both directions using two electric lifting columns. Both of the turning unit's columns are mounted on the floor of the production facility. There is the option to mount the turning unit on the DEMMELER rail system. This allows the distance between the two face plates to be set to different workpiece sizes. 


  • Ergonomic work that protects your back
  • Improved workplace safety
  • Ultimate productivity and improvement in quality thanks to the staff being in the ideal position for working
  • Higher melting deposition rate when welding, as most seams can be produced in the optimal position (flat position)
  • No need for time-consuming reclamping – the workpiece is lifted and turned in a single clamping cycle
