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.

Extra Long Tables Aid in Ergonomics

A customer who manufactures display cases for retail was looking for an ergonomic way of assembling the product. These cases were as long as 16 ft long and weighed up to 2,000 pounds. This was a great application for our Tandem Scissors Lift Table. Two scissors lifts in one frame are ideal for handling long items such as these. We incorporated a gravity conveyor as this would become part of an assembly line. The lifts needed to go as low as 7 inches to match up with the existing conveyor lines so we were able to customize them to achieve this requirement. They needed to lift 30 inches to an ergonomic height for the workers to perform their tasks more efficiently.

Rough-Terrain Lift Table Helps Renewable Energy

A customer in the wind turbine industry was looking for a way to safety and efficiently perform maintenance on turbine blades in the field. They needed a low-profile, rough-terrain scissors lift so they can transport and position the blades. The huge windmill blades can span up to 200′ length, so they are quite awkward and cumbersome to handle. The lift table is only 8 feet long and is positioned under the middle at the center of gravity to do the positioning. The wheels are 21” diameter pneumatic wheels and it has dual self-contained drive wheels with power steering and a joystick pendant control for remote operation. The blade is removed from the windmill head and placed onto the lift table. Then the lift table is maneuvered to a work area where it places the blade on supports to perform the work.

The self-propelled mobile scissors lift table is an ideal tool for improving the efficiency and rapid turnaround of wind turbine blade maintenance. By combining proven lift table design with the custom features required for the specific application, we are able to provide a simple and cost-effective engineered solution.

Open the Window to Ergonomics

A window manufacturer came to us seeking a lift that would raise their nearly completed bay windows 3 to 4 feet off the ground to apply a waterproof adhesive to the bottom edge of the frame. To accomplish this task, workers had to place the bay window enclosures on small carts via a forklift. They would then have to lay on the ground and reach under the frame to apply the caulk, a very laborious and dangerous job to preform. The window structures came in various sizes and weights, and headroom had to be considered when lifting some of them. A big part of our task here at ATI is to not only find a viable and safe solution for each application, but to also make the recommended piece of equipment versatile and help improve on the client’s current production output. Our recommendation was a modified Fork Stacker Lift that would be designed to hold windows sizes from 36 in. tall to 78 in. tall securely, and with a max capacity of 1000 lbs. Lifting from the bottom of the bay enclosures, we were able to raise their largest window up 50 in. from the ground. Now 1 worker instead of 2 or 3 could preform the task safely, without having to lay on a dirty factory floor. This not only improved productivity and efficiency, but solved an ergonomic issue as well. They even discovered that the quality improved greatly now that the worker had a much better view applying the sealant and was able to do so with much less mistakes. So I guess you can say we helped this window company get a better view of safety and performance.

Customer finds lifting solution with ATI’s Zero-Low Three Point Entry

A customer in the Northeast turns to ATI for solution. They needed a lifting device to lift 50 pound bags of product up 80 inches to a mezzanine and to the operator. They wanted to roll a cart full of these 50 pound bags from one side and have the operator be able to remove them from an adjacent side.

ATI turns to one of its standard product lines, the Zero-Low Three Point Entry lift table. A standard Zero Low would need to be 90-plus inches long and the customer did not have that much room. With some minor modification ATI was able to meet what the customer needed. With the addition of guardrails, chains, and holding valves the unit was safe for the operator to step on.

The Zero-Low Three Point Entry is easiest to use lift table of all time! ATI’s 3-Point Entry, Zero-Low Lift Table permits the load to be placed on the table from three sides and raised close to the operator. 1,000 & 2,500 lb. capacities, up to 48 in. lift height. Loads can be placed on the table from three sides providing easier access by operator. A wide variety of deck sizes available to fit any size load. Double roller lifting chains give maximum lifting stability. Lifting table travels on rollers eliminating rubbing, friction and binding. Rollers are adjustable; level lifting is maintained at all times. Manual, electric, or air-over-hydraulic operation is available.

ATI Helps Army with Tank Assembly

A government customer at an army base was looking for a way to work on the undercarriage of a Bradley turret assembly that weighed close to 10,000 lbs. They needed something that was portable and easy to maneuver. We combined our Zero Low scissors lift with a self propelled walkie type drive and wheel package mounted to the Zero low Lift. We also removed the platform in the middle to make it easy for the worker to access the platform. The customer also requested for a special fixture so they could easily mate the turret with the top of our lift. We mounted this fixture on the fenders which were located on the outside of the lift. You can see the standard design for this unit at

Air Technical Industries has solution to company’s back injuries

Company has had a rash of back strains and injuries from daily production application. ATI finds solution with their standard lift table. The customer was moving sheets of plastic from the press to a skid. The first few units made the worker bend over to lay the plastic sheets on the skid. As the pile approached table height they were able to relax a little until the stack got to the point the worker would have to lift the sheets to place the very top ones. These sheets only weighed about 50 pounds each, but the continued bending, stretching, and lifting started to take its toll.

ATI’s solution was a standard lift table with an automatic height gauge. This way the worker could slide the sheets straight from the press to the skid. As the sheets came on the lift table would automatically lower itself waiting for the next sheet. This simple solution has both decreased injuries and increased productivity at the same time.

These lift tables increase productivity and safety while reducing worker fatigue. Wheels optional for extra mobility and versatility. Ideal when table is frequently transferred from one location to another. Self-propelled are also available.

Capacities available from 500 pounds to 50,000 pounds and lift heights as much as 74 inches.

Custom Scissors Lift Provides Multi-level Access

A professional motor cross racer was in need of transferring his motor bikes from his garage to his basement where he would have them on display. He needed a 13′ vertical lift with a 500 lbs capacity. We were able to customize our maintenance lift to do just that. The customer installed this along a rail that he had mounted on his basement wall. This helped keep the lift stable as there were multiple sections of scissors stacked on top of each other.
