Autoquip Offers Lifting Solutions to the Aerospace Industry

Autoquip is proud of its history providing specialized lifting equipment to the Aerospace industry. We have partnered with the top aerospace manufactures to design lifting solutions for manufacturing of aircraft, repair, maintenance and assembly.

Aerospace Lift Solutions:

  • Tool Cart Lift - Designed to lift materials and tool carts from ground level to work level.  We have the capability to build any size of lift platform to handle various cart size requirements.  Automated controls can be programmed to accommodate multiple stops at various work heights.  
  • Mobile Lifts:  Designed to provide a mobile solutions to transfer materials or parts for assembly in a non-fixed work environment.  Any one of our lifts can become mobile by adding Casters, Fixed Track - Rail Guided, Powered Drive Wheel, or 2 Wheel Electric Drive System.
  • Work Access Platform Lifts:  Work Platforms designed to provide an adjustable working surface for personnel performing maintenance and assembly.  Positions workers and their materials/tools to the optimal work height.
  • Tilt Lifts:  Designed to optimize the assembly process by “up righting” large components for pallet loading or the fiber lay-up process.

Whether on the tarmac, in the hanger, at the assembly line, or around the loading dock, Autoquip has the technical expertise, design experience, and manufacturing capability to help you develop an effective, reliable, and safe custom equipment solution that will meet the rigorous safety and design specifications that are unique to the Aerospace industry.

  • Typical lifting and handling solutions that Autoquip has designed and manufactured for the Aerospace Industry include:

    Jet Engine Test Cell Lifts High travel scissors lift and heavy duty ram lift configurations raise large wheeled carts carrying jet engines to the fixtures near the top of the test cell.

    High Travel Work Platform Lifts Fixed and portable scissors lifts, with and without adjustable shuttle decks, provide assembly personnel variable vertical and lateral access to all surfaces of a wing and its tool during assembly and inspection.

    Fuselage Positioning Lifts Multiple portable hydraulic scissors lifts working in tandem to provide variable working heights of the entire jet fuselage.

    Satellite Storage and Launching Lift Portable, adjustable scissors tables move and position satellites between storage and launch facilities.

    Lightweight Personnel Work Platforms Lightweight fixed and portable scissors lifts reduce overall weight for ease of manual positioning by personnel. This reduction in weight is also critical on the cantilevered work platforms used to access fuselage sections during assembly.

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

    High Travel Material Lifts Vertical reciprocating conveyor and high travel scissors lift designs safely transfer carts with component parts from one landing to another for assembly, storage, and inventory.

    Air Cargo Container Lifts High-capacity scissor lifts with heavy duty conveyors are used at the dock to transfer air cargo containers from dock-to-truck or truck-to-dock.

    Wing Mating Lifts and Tooling Special high-capacity scissors tables are mounted to air bearing transport bases, including adjustable flow "creep speed" power units, to lift and mate an entire wing to the fuselage, then transport the entire assembly down the production line.
