NBE tilt tables automatically tilt containers up to 2,500 pounds. Floor-level tilters, originated by NBE, can accommodate pallet jack, hand truck, and forklift loading of bulk containers. Containers are loaded into the unit at floor level and begin to automatically tilt when the gaylord reaches approximately 900 pounds. As the gaylord container is being emptied, the tilt table is gradually tilted up to a maximum of 45 degrees; all material is directed into one corner ensuring complete product removal with minimal operator involvement.
