Solar Panel Lift Systems and Other Energy Lifts

All Alum-a-Lifts are optimized for your equipment, environment, and process. Our engineers minimize system weight and address narrow aisles, electrostatic discharge (ESD) concerns, overhead obstacles, grated flooring, and other challenges.

Alum-a-Lift can configure work positioners, allowing unencumbered access to all sides of a component. Adaptors can be designed to integrate a system with your existing fixturing. Complete, turnkey handling systems and handling devices are also available. Often a single lift can replace multiple overhead hoists or stationary balancers.

We offer a wide variety of lifts for the solar, power, and energy industries. Alum-a-Lifts can:

Handle spools, reels, and coils of wire

Load silica/quartz glass preforms into towers for the drawing of fiber optic cable

Handle panels, including solar panels

Install power distribution panels into enclosures

Manipulate process-specific equipment

Raise and rotate drums and buckets

Handle molds, dies, fixturing, tooling, and other components used for fabrication

Load bins, baskets, totes, and trays into environmental chambers, anechoic chambers, vibe stations, ovens, and more

Vacuum Systems Available

Portable vacuum systems are often employed for panels, glass, sheets, quartz ware, or other smooth components. These can be run from your existing compressed air supply, or with an on-board vacuum generator.
