// PRECISION POSITIONING
Autoquip boasts an unmatched ability to provide solutions for precise positioning applications at competitive prices. Our hydraulic lifts, equipped with electrical transducers and controlled by programmable controllers (PLC), can achieve repeatable accuracies as precise as plus or minus one tenth of an inch. Our scissors tables equipped with mechanical actuators and electrical motor encoders are able to reach repeatable accuracies of plus or minus five hundredths of an inch.
Autoquip has the technical expertise, mechanical and electrical design experience, and manufacturing capability to help you develop a custom equipment and controls solution that will achieve the accuracy you require in your precision positioning application:
Modular home lifting system - A system of eight hydraulic lifts, each equipped with a vertical transducer and controlled by a central motor control panel with PLC, keeps an entire 50-foot-long modular home level within ¼" during raising and lowering.
Satellite positioning table - Scissors table with mechanical spiral mechanism and PLC controller is able to raise the lift deck to precise, pre-determined heights.
Robotic welding positioning turntable - Mechanical turntable with encoder must rotate in accurate 90-degree increments for the robotic welder to be positioned correctly for spot welding.
Programmable lift for sheet metal processing - A high-capacity hydraulic lift equipped with linear transducer is pre-programmed with the PLC to stop at precise elevations during sheet transfer from the lift to an adjoining conveyor.
Sheet blanking turntable - Large ring bearing turntable with rotary encoder and PLC controls precisely positions sheets of metal for scoring and marking just upstream of the blanking machine.
Programmable over-under conveyor lift - Mechanical scissors lift driven by a mast-mounted gear drive system and programmed for use in a conveyor over/under system to raise and lower product from one elevation to the other.
X-Ray machine lift - Scissors lift actuated by a mechanical vertical ball screw to raise and lower the lifts to predetermined and precise elevations for X-Ray alignment.
Ink jet printer manufacturing - Mast lift whose platform was actuated by a vertical ball screw and controlled by an electrical encoder and PLC to raise and lower printer chassis to precise elevations during assembly.
