Pig Lift. Yes, really.

A customer who was having to dump sows from one level of the building down to another was looking for an ergonomic solution to lift and off-load three pigs at a time. The total weight would be no more than 1,000 lbs. They wanted to load one at a time and needed it to be flush with the floor. The Zero Low Lift and Tilt was a great solution. We designed it with 90 degree tilt feature and this enabled them to make sure the load was completely discharged from the platform. We also designed the back of the platform to have a spring loaded backup plate to easily retain the pigs, but allow them to roll out at the appropriate time, and then automatically return the stop once the table is emptied.

For everyone keeping score, ATI has already helped customers load and lift tons of elephant and rhino excrement, pull sharks out of aquarium pools, hoist up a bird cage, and now on to handling hogs. Perhaps we should change our name to Air Technical Zoo Equipment!

Extra Large Lift & Tilt Table

A customer that manufactured the cardboard cores that would go inside rolls of paper was looking for an ergonomic way to tilt these rolls in the cutting process. When the rolls are made they are made in lengths of up to 20 feet long and then are cut down to sections of 5 feet or smaller. We manufactured a a custom tandem lift and tilt table that was 7 feet wide by 21 feet long and would tilt up to 15 degrees. The table was equipped with sockets on all for corners to secure the crate that was set on top of it. As the table was tilted it would easily allow for the cores to slide off the platform. This task was originally done by and overhead crane & because of safety concerns, the mis-application of the overhead crane, and not tying up the overhead crane time, they changed to a safer and ergonomic way to handle the application.
