Handling Specialty was approached by an internationally recognized aerospace company (and previous customer) to design and manufacture a heavy-duty, long-lasting, explosion-proof custom-engineered scissor lift for use in a jet engine test cell. The lift is being used to load new jet engines into a test cell for testing and to safely and reliably move personnel and equipment around the jet engine.
- LDLT-style scissor sets, four total (two scissor sets placed side by side, two scissor sets placed tandem long), allow wide lifts with a shallow low height and a stable work platform for equipment and operators.
- Cross brace members between scissor sets mean both sets of scissors are mechanically linked and stiffened, which ensures level lifting of the platform laterally.
- Synchronizing tubes between scissors means both sets of scissors are mechanically linked along the scissor lengths and ensures level lifting of the platform longitudinally.
- Custom-engineered, Heavy duty scissor lift
