360° Revolving Stages

Car turntables for car dealerships, dealerships, car shows, showrooms and photo studios

Our car turntable is only 5.6 cm high and is the centerpiece of our Picture Instruments 360° car photo studio. It can be installed on the existing hall floor or, for those who prefer a seamless look, the turntable can of course be embedded in the hall floor. We will of course provide a template for the screed work. In addition to its use for photographic purposes, the car turntable can also be used for other purposes. For example, for turning the vehicle in the garage or in the showroom.

The core of the car studios

Long tried and tested in numerous car photo studios, the revolving stage provides its services day after day for our customers, such as Autohero, Porsche or Ford. If you already have a studio or at least a free space, you should expand it with a revolving stage, which is the most important step towards automating the photo process.

Not just for motorcycles

Our revolving platform is available in different sizes. The 3-meter version, which is used in our motorcycle studio, for example, is also ideal for all other large and heavy objects, such as furniture, car accessories or bicycles.

Access ramp or all-round floor platform

A flat access ramp is required to access the car turntable. For this purpose, we offer an access ramp made of galvanized steel that matches the turntable exactly. Thanks to the height of only 5.6 cm and the resulting flat angle of the access ramp, it is no problem even for lowered sports cars to drive onto the turntable. For a level appearance without tearing up the floor, we recommend a surrounding floor platform.

The car turntable is free-standing and is fixed to the floor. However, the car turntable can also be embedded in the floor if desired. The substructure of the turntable consists of several layers (rubber, stainless steel plates), which are supported by special rollers. The surface is made of stable screen printing plates, which can be fitted with individual floor coverings on request. The turntable is driven by a circulating toothed belt, which is driven by a three-phase induction motor located outside the turntable.

Software control

Our turntables integrate into the control software of our automated product photography systems. This means that photo and video cameras can be triggered synchronously with the turntable and numerous options are available for further image processing.
