Industrial Lifts, Turntables and Tilters Used in the Safe and Efficient Assembly of Parts and Products

Manual assembly operations typically involve the use of handheld tools and require the operator or technician to have direct and free access to the part or product they're working on. At Autoquip we understand the importance of designing this assembly work to fit the capabilities of the worker. And because worker capabilities vary due to differences in age, strength, gender, stature, etc., Autoquip designs and manufactures a wide range of industrial lift, tilter, and turntable products that compensate for these differences by bringing assembly work to each worker's unique ergonomic "power zone."
 
By improving the fit between the demands of assembly applications with the capabilities of the workers, Autoquip assembly application solutions have benefited companies by reducing or preventing worker fatigue and injury, improving worker productivity and quality, and lowering worker's compensation claims and insurance costs.  And, all of our standard and customer equipment solutions are 100% made in America and backed by an industry-best 2-year warranty.

 

  • Typical material handling solutions that Autoquip has designed and manufactured for assembly applications include:

    Fuselage Positioning Lifts Portable hydraulic scissors lifts work in tandem to raise and lower the entire fuselage of a business jet to provide variable working heights during the assembly process.

    Jet Engine Assembly Lifts Stacked scissors lifts or a single ram platform lifts ergonomically positions a jet engine by lowering it into a recessed pit while workers stand on and work from the adjacent, fixed floor level.

    End-of-Line Truck Lifts System of multiple scissors tables are used to raise varying truck cab models off the floor-mounted drag-chain conveyor line to complete the assembly process and drive the cabs to the shipping area.

    Conveyor Transfer Lines Scissors lifts with a gravity or powered conveyor are used to transfer and position products during the assembly and packaging process.

    Work Platform Lifts Fixed and portable scissors lifts provide assembly personnel access to sides and top of a modular home during assembly, painting, and inspection.

    Cabinet Assembly Tables Hydraulic or pneumatic scissors tables are used to ergonomically position cabinet components and assemblies with or without conveyor.

    Downender with Rotator Custom built high-capacity 90-degree tilter with ring bearing powered turntable receives and delivers locomotive generators standing on end, then clamps, down-ends, and rotates them in a horizontal plane during build-up.

    Lifts for the Chassis Assembly Line Portable hydraulic scissors tables, equipped with automatic mechanical locks in the base frame to prevent downward "drifting" of the lift over time, hold the chassis of large agricultural machinery during the build-up process and wheel installation.

    Lawnmower Assembly Tables Hydraulic scissors tables adjust the height of the mower during assembly, keeping the work within the ergonomic "power zone."
