The TOOL MOVER is designed for axial rotary movements of tools up to 64 tons dead weight and up to 22 m3 volume. It is designed so that the pivot point is always in the safe area of ​​the tool. This reduces the necessary torque that the smart TECDOS omega drive has to apply under the table. Its mode of operation can best be compared to a flexible rack and pinion drive. The task of the rack is taken over by a radially inserted RUD chain. Pocket wheels arranged in an omega shape constrict the chain and serve as drive and deflection wheels.

The payback period for the RUD TOOL MOVER is less than one year. The TOOL MOVER is therefore a very inexpensive tool to prevent damage and dangers. In addition, the RUD TOOL MOVER can be used mobile in the company. It can easily be used anywhere in the company thanks to lifting points and forklift pockets.
