Company looks for safer way to move carts

An American supplier of tooling and industrial materials had an application where they were rolling carts with very fragile material on them up a ramp to a platform where the material was needed. Even though the grade was gradual, they had a couple close calls with the material shifting as the cart angle increased.

This is where Air Technical Industries came in to provide a safer and more efficient solution. With the use of one of ATI’s standard products, the Low-Profile Zero Low lift table was able to provide a ground level loading of the carts. The Low-Profile Zero Low lift table would raise to the desired height and they could push the cart directly off the lift and on to the raised platform, completely eliminating any tilting of their carts. To meet any OSHA requirement for personnel lifts the Low-Profile Zero Low lift was outfitted with guardrails, velocity fuses, and other safety standards to protect both the load and personnel riding on the Low-Profile Zero Low lift table.

Air Technical Industries Low-Profile Zero Low lift table is similar to their standard Zero Low lift tables, but the fenders are both narrower and lower to the ground on the Low-Profile Zero Low lift table. This allows easier access by the operator.

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

Mobile Zero-Low Lift for Aerospace

A customer that manufactured helicopters was looking for a way to lift and weigh their helicopters. They were doing this operation not only to check the weight ,but also to check the balance and center of gravity of the helicopters. They wanted something that was mobile so that they can wheel it into place and then remove when not in use. The also wanted the Zero Low feature so that they could roll right on the the lift at the ground level. We were able to equip the Zero Low lift table with a wheel package and utilize what we like to call the 5th wheel design. This would allow them to engage or disengage the wheels when the scissors table was in use. They also mounted a low profile scale on top to perform the weight test that was needed. The Zero Low lifts were powered by air because this was compressed air was readily accessible.

Zero-Low Lift with wheels

A maintenance engineer approached Air Technical Industries with a challenge. They remove and replace pumps on a monthly basis that need lifted a few feet in the process. In order to do this the maintenance crew has had to use several pieces of equipment including two mobile cranes. Since these pumps are on wheels and can be pushed or pulled the solution is the Zero-Low Lift with wheels. This unit will lower flush to the ground for easy loading and unloading, and can be raised slightly to be used as a cart. This solution makes it possible to use only one piece of lift equipment for the removal and replacement of the pumps.

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.

Cart loading/unloading sans forklift

Many modern operations seek to operate in a forklift free environment in order cause increased productivity, safety, and cut overall expenses. A Zero-Low lift is an integral part of any forklift free operation, the Zero-Low lift has minimal clearance to allow it to be loaded by a pallet jack, or for a loaded cart to be pushed directly onto the table. This allows employees to raise and lower the cart to the desired height, for loading and unloading, preventing injuries, and causing maximum operational efficiency. Once the task is complete the table can be lowered to ground level and the cart can be rolled off and replaced. A hinged dock plate can be utilized if pass through operation is desired.
