Rugged and reliable equipment solutions by Autoquip to meet the demands of sheet handling applications

Autoquip custom lifts have been designed and manufactured in America's heartland for over 40 years, and have grown to become the top choice of customers who demand the very best in rugged, versatile and safe sheet handling equipment.  Autoquip has designed custom solutions for the indexing, feeding, transporting, and lifting of sheets and flats for a wide variety of industries and applications.

Equipment designs like automatically indexing lifts, in-feed/out-feed lifts and systems, and traversing carts all include design features and options uniquely suited for sheet handling applications. These applications include turntables, polyurethane lined platforms, "V" deck with or without snub rollers, hydraulic kick off mechanism,  and a "coil present" switch to recognize when the coil is in position on the equipment platform.

Autoquip's team of design engineers have access to an extensive database of custom application designs, and are able to quickly and effectively generate new designs and CAD models specific to the requirements of your particular sheet-handling application.

  • Typical lifting and handling solutions that Autoquip has designed and manufactured for sheet handling applications include:

    Automatic Indexing Lifts Hydraulic scissors tables equipped with photo-electric sensors are placed at either in-feed or out-feed conveyor positions adjacent to process machinery to automatically index up or down as layers of material are removed or added to a conveyed pallet.

    Plane-Feed Lifts Foot-operated lifts installed just upstream of powered planers to manually adjust the elevation of the top layer of lumber and plywood for ease of pulling and aligning the pieces into the planer.

    Indexing Sheet Feed Scissors Lift Scissors tables are used to index down automatically as layers of cardboard were dropped onto the lift on the out-feed side of a cutter.

    Cardboard Bundling Tilter A special non-intrusive tilter is used to rotate a stack of cardboard standing on edge to center the load and even up all edges before banding/bundling.

    Sheet Transfer Carts A high-capacity scissors lift on a traversing base has a large powered turntable for receiving, rotating, delivering/traversing, and raising sheets of metal to feed a blanking machine.

    Indexing Sheet Feed Scissors Lift Scissors tables are used to index down automatically as layers of cardboard were dropped onto the lift on the out-feed side of a cutter.
