Zero-Low Deck for Food Processing

A customer in the food industry was looking for a way to raise food carts that had bags of sugar on them to make it easier for the operator to unload them. The full cart would weigh upwards of 1,000 pounds. They needed something with a small foot print that could be rolled on at Zero-Low height. The lift also had to be suitable for a sanitary environment due to the sensitive food processing application. Our Zero-Low 3-Point Entry Lift Table was a great solution for this need. We also made the necessary provisions to make it suitable for wash-down such as stainless steel structural construction and hydraulic cylinder. The electrical and hydraulic system was also built with wash-down components. The customer wanted a way to lock the carts to the lift so we designed cut-outs in each of the four corners so that the lift will engage the bottom of the cart without the wheels as it raises. This is another successful and innovative solution done by Air Technical Industries!!

Zero-Low Lift Streamlines Medical Manufacturing

An OEM in the medical equipment industry came to us for a lifting solution at their regional service center. What they wanted to accomplish was to provide for a more efficient, safe and productive procedure and environment for repairing/upgrading ultrasound equipment. These devices are mounted on permanent skids with caster wheels, so our Zero-Low lift table was a natural solution allowing their technicians to wheel the equipment onto the ground level lift table safely and with ease thereby immediately improving ergonomics. And by choosing double-acting lift cylinders, productivity was further enhanced.

Secondly, their process/production lines change regularly and their service lift areas have to move with those lines. Rather than using pit-mounted lifts that would leave holes in the floor, once again, the Zero-Low lift tables improved versatility as well as safety, being able to move to different workstations based on changing production processes.

Finally, we customized our tables with safety skirts, holding valves and a heavy duty cycle package that exceeded their safety requirements and added to the longevity and value of the lift tables.

Ground Level Work Positioning

A customer who manufactures high-tech bearings for automotive and industrial was looking for a way to lift carts full of these bearings to an ergonomic working height. The carts were 24” x 48” long and weighed as much as 1,000 lbs completely loaded. This is a simple application of our Zero-Low family of ground-level lift tables. The operator could roll the cart directly onto the lift without the use of ramps or a forklift. However, they needed something that was sleek and narrow so the operator would not have to reach far over the sides of the lift to get to the parts. Our Low-Profile Zero-Low Lift Table was the perfect solution! We also installed locking bars to prevent the carts from rolling off when on the lift table. Utilizing the unique solution of the Low-Profile Zero-Low Lift table with ground level platform entry and low-profile, narrow fenders, this customer was able to accomplish everything they needed to improve ergonomics and work performance.

Zero-Low Saves Hospital from Construction SNAFU

Hospital builds a new emergency department and turns to Air Technical to solve issue. After concrete was poured and dumbwaiters were installed to transport instruments up and down from the emergency room, they had a 7” rise from the floor to the dumbwaiter to contend with. Originally, the contractor put in a ramp, but it covered too much floor space and prevented access to another area. So, the ramps were torn out.

After meeting with the hospital personnel to discuss a solution, Air Technical Industries suggested their standard Zero-Low lift table with mechanical screw operation. The Zero-Low lift table would allow them to roll their carts on to the lift table, raise up the 7”, and roll the carts into the elevator. Another Zero-Low lift table would be used in the same fashion for when the dirty instruments would come back down from the emergency room. The footprint was considerably shortened from what the ramps covered. The Zero-Low lift tables also made it more ergonomic for the hospital workers who were moving the carts around.

Because the area is considered a clean environment, the Zero-Low lift tables were made out of stainless steel and no hydraulics were used. A mechanical screw was used to drive the Zero-Low lift table up and down.

Air Technical Industries has a standard line of hydraulically operated Zero-Low lift tables and a screw actuated line of the Zero-low lift tables. The screw actuated lifts have up to 4000 pound capacities and the hydraulic units go up to 50,000 pounds. Please use the links provided for more information. Air Technical Industries will also modify a standard piece of equipment to meet customers’ specific needs.

Zero-Low Can Lift Tons of Sh!t

A Zoo was looking for a way to lift their elephant & rhinoceros manure. The manure would weigh in up to 10,000 lbs when combined all together. The manure was to be loaded into two carts that would sit on top of a Zero Low scissors lift that was located in a pit. They would load the carts and once they were full, would raise the Zero Low lifts to the ground level & then transfer the carts away. This was a unique application because the units would be outside and the manure would eventually eat away at the coating of the lifts. So we decided to hot-dip galvanize both the scissors lifts. This was a unique solution that would ensure the longevity of the Zero Low Scissors lifts. They purchased two of these custom scissors lifts for each type of animal.
