Morgan Aero is ready to meet the heavy-lift challenges of your Chicago installation with worm drive hoists designed to increase the speed, efficiency, and precision of load handling.  Our worm drive hoists permit adaptation to a wide variety of applications as well as capabilities for applications requiring minimal hook clearance.  As a company that specializes in worm drive hoists, our expertise spans a history that covers nearly 60 years – we have dutifully served the aviation and aerospace industries since 1964.

Worm drive hoists offer a big advantage of their high reduction ratio.  A worm gear can possess a mammoth reduction ratio with very little effort – adding circumference to the wheel is all it takes.  This translates into being able to greatly increase torque or greatly reduce speed.  And fewer moving parts mean fewer places for failure.

As a Worm Drive Hoists Company, We have Chicago’s Back

Morgan Aero offers a variety of ground support equipment for hoisting and lifting applications:

Aerosafe worm drive hoists – 1,000 of our Aerosafe hoists are used within manufacturing and maintenance installations, of all types, around the world – from aircraft and aerospace facilities to general manufacturing arenas.  Our Aerosaft worm drive hoists are offered as manual or pneumatic models.

We manufacture the Aerosafe worm drive hoists for Boeing and, virtually, all major airlines worldwide  for engine and landing gear installation and removal.  When heavy aircraft components for Boeing and Airbus must be handled with absolute care and precision, our worm drive hoists live up to their reputation of safety, accuracy, fast breaking & stopping, and self-locking – ideal functional features that  make worm drive hoists ideal for hoisting and lifting applications.

Lever hoists and hand-chain hoists – Our pneumatic/air powered chain hoists are air-cooled, offering a distinct advantage for aerospace and defense installations throughout the Chicago area.  Air-cooled allows heavy-lifting procedures to proceed, uninterrupted, with an unlimited number of motor starts.  Pneumatic chain hoists lift heavy aircraft loads faster and more efficiently than electric chain hoist options.

Sling lifting systems – Our aircraft sling lifting systems are utilized for component manufacturing, sub-assembly, final assembly, and testing.  Facilities locally, nationally, and globally utilize these support systems for airline and military aircraft maintenance, repair, inspections, the lifting of disabled aircraft, and more.
