The Glass Lift Assists’ were designed for Steelcase, out of Athens AL. Precision Engineering designed, built, and installed a lift assist system to accurately pick and place sheets of glass ranging in sizes from 1′ by 10′, all the way up to 6′ by 9′ from an assembly pallet to the assembly line. The lift assist were a very exciting project for us. This project was similar to a design we had previously done before, but on a much larger scale. We really had to work with the center of gravity on this project to get it just right. The glass lift assist really challenged our engineers and there thought process for this design. With research, hard work, and resourceful ingenuity, this project really came together well.
