Why Skillet Lifts for Final Assembly

What is a skillet lift?

Skillet lifts are electro-mechanical or hydraulic scissor lifts which are paired with a conveyor system – moving platforms that support both the vehicle and the manufacturing team performing assembly operations. The skillets are outfitted with custom tooling and programmed to raise and lower heights along the conveyor’s path, which assist the technicians in the assembly process.

The skillet conveyor utilizes platforms to transport materials or products through various assembly operations.  The strength of this system is that it provides access around the perimeter of the product, enabling the worker to travel with the product as it is conveyed through the various stages of assembly.  The skillet travels at a pace that permits the worker to finish an assigned task, then walk back to the starting point, picking up new material & stepping onto the next skillet.

Handling Specialty helped pioneer the modern automotive final assembly line back in the early 80s with the development of ergonomic and efficient electro-mechanical lifts for the North American auto industry.  These robust skillet lift designs provide the ability to support vehicles with different wheelbases and wheel gauges and increased mounting flexibility.

Handling Specialty’s skillet lifts incorporate secondary anti-fall protection systems, over-travel limits, and full perimeter bellows skirting.  Skillet lifts can be built to meet a wide range of weight capacities.  All critical pivots and rolling points have maintenance-free, anti-friction bearings for increased efficiency.  Handling Specialty’s skillet systems are the answer to conveying applications requiring high productivity rates, high reliability, high flexibility, and excellent ergonomics.
