A customer in the entertainment industry was looking for a custom stage lift to lift his drummer of his band 10′ in the air and then come underneath him so it appeared that the drummer was floating over top. At first it seemed as if only a magician call pull off a trick such as this. However the clever minds of the engineering team came up with a design that would position two double scissors lift parallel with each other and then mount a common platform over top. The lifts were synchronized with a hydraulic flow divider that enabled the lifts to go up at the same rate. The performer also wanted this to happen quickly so we outfitted them with a 15 HP motor enabling them to go up at a fast rate.
