Again, Air Technical Industries has the solution

Existing plant to the new plant seemed to be a major issue. Their safety department also had some extreme policies that had no wiggle room. They needed 2 sets of landing doors that opened up to a lift that also had gates. The 3 foot of lift was no problem, but they needed the lift to fit in the 6” pit. If all of this was not enough, the lift and landing doors needed to work together to ensure the safety of their personnel and their product.

As Air Technical does all the time, they told this customer they have come to the right place. Instead of telling them we don’t do landing doors or making some other excuse why we couldn’t or wouldn’t do something ATI said they have the solution.

After making a few calls to elevator manufacturers we found a company that was willing to work together to help this customer. Making some modifications to our Magic Dock Lift Table, ATI had the exact solution that this customer was told over and over could not be done. The Magic Dock Lift Table is part of ATI’s Dock Lifts and Scissor Lift Table side of their business.

As many previous customers have found, Air Technical Industries is both capable and willing to do those special one of a kind applications. For a quick look at some of these projects, please use the links provided to see what ATI can do and what they will do for you and your company.

Industrial Lift Applied to Home Use

An affluent residential customer was looking for an easy way to transport his groceries from the ground level up to his custom home which is elevated roughly 10 feet above the surface. We developed our maintenance lift to help accomplish this task far easier than having to make multiple trips walking up the stairs into his kitchen with several bags or other heavy items. The scissors lift table was 32” x 60” with 1,000 lbs capacity providing the user a compact material lift with ample capacity. It includes velocity fuses on the cylinders to protect the platform from falling in the event of a hydraulic failure. The lift runs on standard 15 amp 115VAC household electrical service. We also offered a custom paint job to help the lift match with the color scheme of the home. This solution worked out great for the consumer and he was extremely pleased with the outcome.

Customer minimizes worker fatigue with ATI lift

Our customer came to us with an ergonomic nightmare. They were lifting 50 pound bags of product off a production line on to a pallet that sat on the floor. As you can imagine the first few rows required a lot of bending and twisting. Plus, the operator needed to walk around the pallet as each row took 4 bags of products.

The solution to this application was a Low Profile Zero Low Lift Table. This unit allowed the customer to place the pallet inside the fenders and only a 1/2” off the ground. The Low Profile Zero Low Lift Table has a lower fender height then other standard Zero Low Lift Tables. However, this only solved part of the problem. They now needed the Low Profile Zero Low Lift Table to also rotate. ATI having built such a unit in the past knew exactly what to do.

So, in the end the customer was able to finish with the pallet at ground level to be removed with a standard pallet jack. At the same time during the loading of the bags the unit also rotated so the operator could stand in one place and load the pallet on all sides. This both improved worker safety, but also improved productivity. The customer paid for their units in less than 4 months.

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.

Mechanical Lift Tables eliminate hydraulics

In hazardous areas or food grade applications where hydraulics can’t be utilized is an ideal solution for a mechanical lift table. The mechanical series of lift tables can be equipped with manual operation for when there are stringent electrical requirements. It can also be battery or electrically powered as well. Lifting operation is offered with a choice between two different mechanical systems. One is an acme screw-type lift and the other is a cable winch-type lift with a worm gear drive that keeps the load at any position desired without drifting. The manual crank handle is conveniently located at working height. The unit can also be outfitted with wheels for portability purposes. The mechanical lift is also available with a butcher block top for applications where a softer platform is needed for when you are handling delicate parts and or materials.

Pair of Scissors Lifts Wows Entertainment Industry

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.
