The slab turning device has a maximum load capacity of 15 tons and carries heated steel blocks to a forging press.
The slabs will be heated in a chamber furnace onto forging temperature. Then they will be placed on the designated receptacle plate on the slab turning device. By a pivoting motion, the slabs are carried into the required position for the manipulator. The forging manipulator takes over the blocks and the device traverse in the neutral position.
