Multi Stage Scissor Lift for Rocket Assembly

Overview

Handling Specialty was approached to engineer and design a lift that would assist an internationally recognized
aerospace and defence company in the US with the interior assembly of a rocket being used to launch satellites
into space.
The multi-stage hydraulically-actuated lift had large structural requirements as well as tight vertical travel and
stability constraints. The lift had an open-grate 144” diameter work platform and vertical travel of 180”.

Features

  • Meets stringent demands of aerospace and defence industry
  • Tight vertical travel and strict stability constraints
  • Open-grate 144” diameter work platform
