The lift has many other potential industrial applications with a great many benefits including increased performance, improved safety, reduced injuries and fatigue, time savings and increased visibility. For instance, large aircraft manufacturers are manually erecting scaffolding to assemble the fuselage of an aircraft. This is an expensive process with lots of wasted time and space that delays the manufacturing process.

The stage lift can be built into the ground and then elevate the workers with all the tools when and where needed immediately and safely with enormous time savings and improved performance.

Some other applications include large assembly works, cargo loading and handling, paint application of large items, second floor access with cargo, mezzanine work, or product displays elevated for greater visibility. There are many sizes, lifting heights, and capacities available to meet any specific and specialized needs.
