One of our customers, who specialize in the extrusion of billet casting for aluminum producers, needed a personnel work platform to assist in their operations. They were looking for a highly functional lift that would integrate with their casting equipment allowing workers to access each mold at varying heights.
The Autoquip Solution
Autoquip designed a work platform that is track-mounted for mobile alignment to the casting equipment. The 143″ long platform has a capacity of 1,100 pounds and can accommodate two people. It’s equipped with a swing-gate entry with fixed handrails on each side. On board push button controls to operate the lift forward/reverse on track, up/down – travel height to 55 ¾”. The work platform lift provides versatility, allowing the workers closer access to the molds, and reducing the need for additional types of lift equipment.
The Solution Benefits
Through Autoquip’s creative engineering and innovative lifting solutions, we provided the customer with a highly-functional work access platform lift which will allow the workers to optimize the process to produce billet in a more comfortable and safe position.
