Applications of Overhead Cranes & Hoists in the Aerospace/Aviation Industry
In the aerospace and aviation industries, cranes and hoists are often used to lift, move, and position potentially hazardous or highly sensitive loads. As such, they must be engineered with performance, efficiency, and safety in mind.
Equipped with over 40 years of experience designing and manufacturing machines for some of the most complex lifting configurations and highest-risk applications, our engineering team has what it takes to deliver appropriate equipment solutions for even the most complicated lifting jobs in the aerospace and aviation industries. Some of the applications for which we can design and build equipment include:
- Assembling aircraft
- Carrying loads over turbines or other critical equipment
- Handling time-sensitive loads for space flight hardware manufacturing operations
- Transporting high-value aerospace satellites
