Port-A-Lift

PAL Series.

Maximise Flexibility, Safety, and Productivity When Lifting and Rotating Heavy Workpieces

When it comes to maximising efficiency and minimising safety concerns while lifting and rotating heavy workpieces, the Key Plant Port-A-Lift Elevating Headstock and Tailstock is your ultimate solution.

Our PAL Series is designed to provide maximum efficiency and throughput while minimising safety concerns during heavy workpiece handling. This innovative system ensures a seamless and safe elevation of both the headstock and tailstock, thanks to a hardened stainless-steel screw with a low friction re-circulating ball screw and nut, all electrically synchronised.

Our Port-a-Lift model capacities include 6000lb, 10,000lb, 15,000lb, and 25,000lb, with each capacity per headstock. When used in conjunction with a tailstock, the capacity is doubled, allowing for versatility in handling a range of workpieces.
