Bode Conventional Rotators (CR) are manufactured in capacities from 1 tonne to 1200 tonnes. They comprise of one drive section and one idler section (1 set) which care capable of supporting and rotating various weight capacities and handling vessels within specified diameters.

Each section has two wheels, and according to the capacity, normally provided with polyurethane press on bands. Wheels are manually adjustable across the frames to cater for different diameters. The all steel frames are of robust fabrication and are drilled on top faces for the wheel brackets to give accurate alignment and securing of rollers.

The drive section is equipped with the latest inverter technology, driving AC motors giving an accurate variable speed drive to both wheels. Rotation is controlled via a hand held pendant with forward/stop/reverse and speed potentiometer.

Machines can be supplied with anti creep idlers, hydraulic jack up to aid vessel fit up, leadscrew adjustment of wheels centers, steel wheels for pre heat applications, to name but a few options.

Bode Conventional Traversing Rotators (T/CR)
Bode Conventional Traversing Rotators are ideal for supporting, rotating and traversing vessels, especially in the manufacture of wind turbine masts and monopoles. An integral traversing bogie can be either manual or motorised on both the drive and idler section.
