Heavy duty VLM for aircraft carrier
This custom vertical lift module (VLM) was built for a large aircraft manufacturer based out of Washington State. The lift is designed to handle 20 steel molds weighing 7,100 pounds each for a total capacity of 142,000 pounds. Our design was required to hold these parts within a .25” flatness. This custom VLM is also built to withstand earthquakes since the facility is located on the west coast.
