Rugged and reliable equipment solutions by Autoquip to withstand the frequent punishment and demands of the metal working environment

Autoquip greatly respects the demands and rigors of the metal working industry, and for the past 50 years has been developing customized solutions to effectively withstand the punishment delivered by the heavy loads, dirty environment, and overly-aggressive fork truck drivers!  Equipment must not only be built tough to perform reliably day after day, it must also be smart, which often results in interfacing with front-end computer controls within automated systems and metal working equipment.  At Autoquip, we are uniquely qualified to deliver the toughest, smartest innovative solutions in the industry.

Our technical sales and design teams walk each customer through an application review and recommend the most effective and reliable material handling solution available.  Whether you are handling sheet, block, coil, or castings, Autoquip has the right solution at the right price.  We offer tilters, lifts, and turntables in every size and capacity - all built in the heartland of America.   

  • Typical custom equipment solutions for the Metal Working Industry include:

    Pallet Build-Up Station Surface mounted lift and turn combinations allow operator to ergonomically and efficiently load aluminum castings onto a pallet.

    Portable Lift for Heat Treat Oven Special scissors table with manual, mechanical actuation raise metal parts of varying sizes to exact heights before pushing the lift and pats into a heat treat oven for an extended period of time.

    20 Ton Capacity Lift A heavy duty high-travel scissors lift is used in handling and transferring extremely large molds in an aluminum processing factory.

    Coil Upender A special 90-degree tilter is used to receive coils from an overhead crane, then upend them from their sides to an upright position on pallets.

    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 index up automatically as layers of sheet metal are pulled from the lift on the in-feed side of a forming operation.

    Portable Machine Feed Scissors Table Double long scissors table with casters on the base and gravity conveyor on top enables one operator to align, pull and feed long pieces of stock into a saw. This lift can also be pushed by a fork truck for use at multiple saws.

    Welding Stations Scissors tables adjust the height of a welding table to the ergonomic work height of various welders.

    Parts Basket Tilters Bins and baskets of small metal castings are tilted up to an operator during an assembly operation to reduce reaching and bending.
