If you are a spacecraft manufacturing or testing company, you can count on Autoquip to develop the right lifting solutions to meet your material handling needs. We have decades of experience working on unique projects with our aerospace clients which easily prepares us for the unique challenges of the space exploration industry.
Autoquip Is Up for The Challenge
We pride ourselves in our ability to consult with our customers and fully understand their exact requirements. When it comes to lifts, there is no one-size-fits-all solution. Autoquip has worked with dozens of industries, including aerospace, to build specialized lifts. We recognize the need for a unique lifting solution to make your project seamless and efficient.
Since our founding in 1947, Autoquip has been a leader in custom material handling equipment. We work with our customers to design and manufacture high-quality, custom lifts. When you choose Autoquip, you have a team of experienced engineers to create the lift that is right for your specialized application.
Spacecraft manufacturing and testing is a rapidly growing industry, and Autoquip is here to help get your next application going. One example of our customization ability is the double pantograph scissor lift we designed to integrate with a rocket launch tower.
This client needed a solution to transfer cargo onto a rocket with precise positioning. They required a stable mezzanine floor for loading between the 15th and 16th floors of the fixed rocket tower. Our team designed a custom double pantograph scissor lift to integrate with the rocket launch tower. It included air-controlled operating valves and controlled pneumatic platform locking pins for precise alignment between floors. We also provided gates and enclosures for added safety, including a pneumatic gate interlocking system.
Autoquip’s Ability to Customize for Your Needs
We work hard to provide our clients with the solutions to overcome their complex hurdles. Our decades of experience designing lifts for the aerospace industry provides us practical knowledge that can also serve the space industry. Here are a few examples of our custom designs:
- Jet Engine Test Cell Lifts: Raise large wheeled carts containing jet engines to fixtures at the top of the test cell.
- High Travel Work Platform Lifts: Provide access to wing surfaces when necessary for inspection or maintenance.
- Jet Engine Assembly Lifts: Allow employees to work on floor level by lowering a jet engine into a recessed pit.
- Lightweight Personnel Work Platforms: Reduce weight so employees can manually position with ease. This helps the cantilevered work platforms used to access fuselage sections during assembly.
AQ Connect Smart Controls System
Autoquip offers specialized design options to make your equipment and workload more streamlined. One of these design options includes the intuitive AQ Connect smart controls system. Get the most out of your lift with this smart control panel that monitors your equipment status and keeps your operations on track. AQ Connect improves the functionality of your custom lift which is vital to the critical operations within the space industry.
