- Structure Design
ELT Systems Group was asked to design, manufacture and install a custom platform to be used when installing bus roof skins. The platform needed to have hydraulic lift gates to let the buses in and out along with storage for all tools and materials needed for manufacturing. ELT designed the platform in 3D so the customer could see the final layout prior to fabrication.
The installation took place over a 2 day weekend working long hours to get it fully installed so we didn’t interrupt bus production come Monday morning. We removed the old mezzanine and installed the new one with 10 of our installers working closely making sure everything was securely put in place.
The lift gate used its own hydraulic power pack to lift and lower with a push button electric controller. The motion of the platform moving triggered warning lights and buzzers so personnel were aware of an active platform.
