Fast – Safe – Ergonomic.With the turning bench PVT 180° from Schmalz, unwieldly wood, metal and plastic panels can easily be turned over with speed and efficiency. The workpieces can be stopped at any angle for inspection or futher processing and can then be either returned back to its original position, or can be flipped over 180°.

Turning Workpieces Through 180°

A Single Person Operation

A single operator can load and unload a CNC machining centre quickly and safely. The workpiece is then placed with the JUMBO on the turning bench, where it can be turned to any desired angle for further processing. After this, the panel is moved again with the JUMBO to the machining centre.


Features Include:

  • Solenoid Valve which ensures that the workpiece can only be released at the end position of the bench.
  • Audible warning device: remains functional even in the case of a power failure.
  • Operator stand:»All controls ergonomically positioned
    »The operator is kept well away from the danger area
    »Simple maintenance because all electrical and pneumatic components are integrated
  • Geared motor directly mounted to the rotation shaft:»Increased speed of motion
    »Vibration-free turning, gentle starting and stopping
    »Reliable operation. No drive chains requiring adjustment
    »Less wear and tear
