WING Butterfly Table for Prefabricated Panel Construction

WING Butterfly Lifting Table for Prefabricated Panel Construction
  • Semi-automated panel flipping combines powerful lift with rapid 90-second cycle time to enable access to cavities for value added installation of MEPs and insulation.

  • Fully customizable to produce value-added wall, floor, and ceiling panels as well as window rough openings of any required dimension.

  • Steel rollers and conveyers available for semi-automated production, removing the need for overhead crane manipulation.

  • Pneumatic clamps enable the WING to do double duty as a wall panel framing station.


The Soukup WING is a robust panel turn table designed for the manufacture of wall, floor and ceiling panels. It turns panels 90⁰ or 180⁰ using a heavy duty hydraulic tilting mechanism designed for repetitive, heavy lifting.


The WING has two basic components: a fixed table and a mobile table mounted on tracks. Both work tables and the hydraulic tilting mechanism can be controlled by a single operator via an electronically regulated control system. The working area comes standard with steel rollers for an easy transfer of finished panels onto following workstations.

Safety is assured by pressure-adjustable pneumatic locking clamps which hold the panels against the table securely as they move. The firm pneumatic clamps can even double up in function and allow the work station to be used as a framing table to optimize your investment and floor space.


• Improved Productivity:  Panels can be turned 90⁰ or 180⁰ by a single operator, with a cycle time which enables quicker throughput while maintaining safety.

• Value Adding Station: The WING can act as an installation station for mechanical, electrical, plumbing or insulation components.

• Integrated Workflow: Panels are easily transferred to our Transporter and Finishing Line to form the core of prefabrication operations of all sizes.
