Proven Aerospace and Aircraft Lifts
If you have a material handling need, Alum-a-Lift can design and build the perfect solution. Our lifts use a combination of our proven dual-mast lift foundation and tailored components.
Our lifting equipment is in use by every major aircraft manufacturer and can be found throughout the manufacturing process, including component manufacturing, subassembly, final assembly, and testing.
Alum-a-Lifts are also utilized by end users in airline and military technical operations groups for maintenance, repair, inspection, and service of aircraft subassemblies and components.
Built to Withstand the Rigors of the Aircraft Industry
Alum-a-Lift designs address real-world off-center loading conditions, which are the largest contributor to failure in a lightweight lift system. Our dual-mast construction will withstand heavier side loads or dynamic side loads.
Alum-a-Lift understands the rigorous quality requirements of the aircraft industry. Our aerospace and aircraft lifts can be built to be CE compliant and to meet other required standards. Our engineers routinely address electrostatic discharge (ESD) concerns. In addition, we can build explosion-proof lifts for hazardous environments where concentrations of volatile materials are present.
Every handling system undergoes rigorous factory testing that simulates actual use, and extensive QC inspections are performed prior to shipment.
Recent Aerospace and Aircraft Lifts
Alum-a-Lifts are useful in the manufacture of every component of an aircraft. Rotation and translation about all axes are available. Here are some of our recent lifts:
Thermal Chamber Loading Lift with Extended Paddle
Custom Ergonomic Lift with Two-Position Platform
Industrial Kiln Loader and Ceramic Stack Transporter
Vacuum Work Positioner Lift for Aircraft Glass
Work Positioner for Testing Imaging Systems
Vacuum Flange Lifter with Manual Rotation
Assembling and installing major subassemblies has historically been the exclusive domain of overhead hoists and stationary fixturing. No longer.
Multiple tandem lifts can be combined to form mobile, high capacity systems capable of lifting and rotating assemblies weighing thousands of pounds and that are greater than 50 feet long.
Built-to-Order Lifting Solutions
Alum-a-Lift can configure work positioners, allowing unencumbered access to all sides of a component. We can include handling devices to integrate a handling system with your existing fixturing, or we can provide a complete, turn-key solution for the entire manufacturing cycle.
An Alum-a-Lift can fit in narrow aisles and under overhead obstacles, and our counterbalanced lifts are perfect for environments where there is no clearance for a traditional lift’s legs.
Here are just a few examples of the kinds the lifts we’ve built for the aircraft and aerospace industry:
