Tilt and Rotate carts are specifically designed to transfer molds through the gelcoat application, and simplify the gelcoat spray process by making all surfaces of a mold easily accessible to allow proper gelcoat spraying.

Tilt and rotate exchange cart
There are multiple configurations of this unit, available in either 10' or 12' lengths, depending on your needs:
  • Tilt and Rotate
  • Tilt only
  • Rotate only


The Tilt/Rotate version is by far the most popular, as this unit speeds up the gel coat process by elevating and rotating the mold mounted on the unit a full 360° in one mode, and lifting them to a 30° angle in another mode. This mobility allows the spray gun operator to stand on one side of the cart throughout the entire spraying process. An integral mold support table elevates and rotates the mold and the cart conveyor track tilts it. This cart is compatible with Gruber Spray Booths and Gruber Conveyor Systems, and can accommodate most Gruber molds.  In addition to being energy-efficient, the Tilt/Rotate Cart reduces operator fatigue and injuries. Use of the cart assist in more even gel coat coverage of the mold surface. Tilt and Rotate carts feature heavy-duty steel construction, galvanized steel wheelway with steel skate conveyor wheel, easy rolling V-groove wheels, pneumatic operation for hazardous areas, heavy-duty steel rotate plate, and durable powder coating for easy cleanup and protection.
