For nearly 60 years, Morgan Aero has catered, mainly, to aviation, aerospace, and general-manufacturing entities locally, nationally, and globally.  From military overhead-lifting applications to offshore heavy lift loads and every type of load application in between, our dedication to manufacturing superior movement-management equipment and providing unsurpassed customer service has always been at the forefront.

As a worm drive hoists company, our readied inventory and customized options meet the most demanding requirements for military, defense, and civilian markets.  When the needs of your San Diego facility revolve around large gear reductions, worm gears are, most often, utilized and it is not unusual for worm gears to have reductions of 25:1 and more.

Worm Drive Hoists – An ‘Advantages Overview’

The advantages of worm drive hoists include gearing that is predictably continuous, reliable, smooth, and quiet.  Your San Diego facility will reap the benefits of this type of hoist which has a reputation for:

  • easily turning the gear, but not allowing the gear to turn the worm
  • sustaining long lifts without concerns of overheating and premature failure
  • delivering faster lifting speeds without accumulating excessive heat
  • offering high-speed reduction in minimal spaces
  • delivering low maintenance due to fewer moving parts
  • generating safe lifting without requiring controls or high-maintenance mechanisms
  • self locking, making them ideal for hoisting and lifting applications
  • producing minimal noise and low vibration
  • possessing excellent shock-absorbing capability


Our in-house manufactured Aerosafe worm-drive hoists are available in manual as well as pneumaticpowered options.  One thousand of our Aerosafe models are in use around the world.  Our Aerosafe worm drive hoists are used for the installation and removal of engines and landing gear for a wide range of aircraft models for Airbus and Boeing and almost all major airlines, worldwide.

As a worm drive hoists company, we offer our Aerospace Oxygen Systems Service our Parts and Assembly Integration and our Chain Hoist and Hoist Systems Fabrication to help San Diego installations of all types and sizes glean increased production, optimized safety, enhanced efficiency, and boosted profit margins.
