Alum-a-Lift is an expert in clean room requirements and compatible lifting systems. Having over 25 years’ experience in providing clean room lifts, Alum-a-Lift can configure any lift for clean room compliance. Alum-a-Lifts can be used in up to FED STD Class 10 (ISO 4.) Even the most basic lifts use a clean, electric, ball screw drive suitable for Class 10,000 (ISO 7.)
Alum-a-Lift are suitable for challenging environments, with stainless steel lifts available for caustic cleaners and intrinsically-safe lifts for volatile environments. IP-65 lifts are available which can be configured for exposure to liquids.
Electrostatic discharge (ESD) concerns are understood and can always be addressed.
Example Alum-a-Lift solutions and past projects include: dynamic fixturing for handling optics through manufacture and test, multiple degree-of-freedom manipulators for precise positioning and installation of specialized electronic assemblies, clamping systems for raising and rotating large cylindrical chambers, permanent installations for removing centrifuge lids, articulated arms to support optical testing, and many more.
Roller decks, fork sets, or other simple end-effectors can be useful to load bins, baskets, totes, and trays into environmental chambers, anechoic chambers, vibe stations, thermal chambers and ovens. Alum-a-Lift understands that some of these machines have their own geometric challenges, and an off-the-shelf system may not fit. If clearance for forward protruding legs is unavailable, counterbalanced lifts are available.
Alum-a-Lift supports every major computer manufacturer and offers lifts to support server upgrades and maintenance. For more information, please visit computer / server.
Ergonomic lifts manufactured by Alum-a-lift are in daily use worldwide in more than 20 countries. Lifts can be constructed that are CE compliant or to other required standards. Factory trained representatives are available to assist you in gathering the necessary information so a lift and end-effector can be configured for your unique lifting requirement and to provide local support and operator training.
