Abstract

Disclosed is a device designed to provide a more ergonomic and effiecient means for removal and mounting of the top ring head assembly. The assembly is foot pedal actuated, air cylinder driven, fully rotational and self centering. It provides hands free operation. The pneumatic lift is a 24V DC powered, air actuated lift. It is fully integrated in to the envionmental interlocks of the supporting machinery to be operational only when the host is in a safe state. When the foot pedal is depressed, the rotational platform is driven in to position by the air cylinder, allowing the user to mount or remove the top ring head that is being supported by the rotational platform. When the foot pedal is released the platform returns to its position of origin. 1 2
