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 means 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
