When presented with any problem, the engineering team at BUILT Systems is always ready to find a solution.
At the start of the current pandemic, the team was presented with a problem that required them to dig into the creative side of their brains to figure out a way to solve the problem quickly and safely.
Transfer loads of up to 500lbs from waist height to shoulder height (24in stroke)
The system needed to be mobile, easy to use, and have a simple one-button actuation for the controls. It also needed cordless operation (battery-powered), and to be safe and reliable.
Brainstorming and Design
The team at BUILT dove right in, using multiple virtual meetings and screen sharing events with each other and the customer to dial in the finite details. The team simultaneously began contacting a local source to aide in the cordless battery system. Partnering with VOLTA Power Systems, the BUILT team began the conversation of what this system needed to accomplish. Once the initial criteria and ideas were set, the engineering team went headfirst into the design. 26 design hours later, the result was a lift transfer system that had never been done before at BUILT Systems. Using our standard actuators combined with our patented glide system and some ingenuity, they were able to create a system that doubled the stroke length of our standard systems while at the same time, double the speed of the lift. The result proved to be a product that we at BUILT are proud to display.
Providing a solution for this specific customer in these uncertain times was something that fit well within the BUILT Systems product spectrum, and we could not be more honored and proud to have helped. Contact us today to learn more about how BUILT Systems can help you!
