Heavy equipment lifts, tilters, and turntables used in the manufacturing and assembly of heavy industrial equipment

For over 50 years, Autoquip has led the material handling industry in the design and manufacture of equipment handling solutions serving the heavy equipment manufacturing industry. Being a manufacturer of heavy equipment ourselves, we understand the need for precise, safe, and reliable heavy equipment handling solutions to improve worker safety and productivity in all areas of the factory. Among the lift solutions we manufacture are industrial scissors lifts, tilters and turntables. Applications include work positioning, re-positioning, and re-orientating heavy components and equipment, raising/lowering chassis, and enabling people to better access their work. Autoquip has the technical expertise, design experience, and manufacturing capability to develop a custom equipment solution that will stand up to the demands of the heavy machinery manufacturing industry.

 

  • Typical material handling solutions that Autoquip has designed and built for the heavy equipment manufacturing industry include:

    End of Saw Lifts Hydraulic scissors tables adjust the height of the top layer of sawed parts as other parts are added to the pallet by the saw operator.

    Shear Drop Lift Scissors lifts catch sheet metal as it drops out of a metal shear, which minimizes material tearing as it falls away near the end of each shearing cut.

    Lifts for the Chassis Assembly Line Portable scissors tables equipped with fixtures hold the chassis of large machinery during the build-up and assembly process.

    Work Platform Lifts Fixed scissors lifts with hydraulic shuttle deck platforms provide assembly personnel access to sides and top of large machinery during assembly and inspection.

    Welding Fixture Lift A powered turntable deck provides three degrees of motion - lift, tilt, and turn - for infinite positioning of various welded assemblies.

    Tow Chain Adjustable Platform Special high-capacity, low-travel platform lift mounted to a traversing base and pulled slowly by tow chain conveyor keeps heavy assembly at adjustable work heights as the equipment moves down the line during build-up.

    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.

    Floor-Mounted Powered Turntable High-capacity powered turntable receives complete rail car, then rotates 90 degrees in either direction to allow the axles to make a tight turn in the assembly process.
