Worm Drive Hoists Manufacturer Austin

Austin can, unarguably, boast as a manufacturing king pin that remains unstoppable.  The Austin region  is home to 1,900 manufacturers, and within this arena government entities represent a huge slice of the manufacturing pie.  From the fabrication of computers to petroleum & coal products to security and defense markets, Austin is humming!

Manufacturing sites in Austin depend, greatly, on hoists and lift systems that ensure precise movement-control, lifting, and positioning of a myriad of products and materials – this is where Morgan Aero comes in.  Since 1964, our passion for partnering with aviation, aerospace, and general manufacturing industries has been fueled by knowing our products generate reduced lead times, increased safety, enhanced production and, ultimately, allow Austin enterprises to enjoy fatter profit margins.

Why Worm Drive Hoists?

The benefits of your Austin facility utilizing one or more worm drive hoists becomes crystal clear when you realize how reliable, smooth, and quiet these gems really are.  Worm drive hoists allow the worm to easily turn the gear, but not allow the gear to turn the worm.

Additionally, worm drive hoists:

  • regulate lowering speed of the load – loads are not allowed to free fall
  • provide low maintenance with fewer moving parts
  • sustain long lifts without concerns of overheating and premature failure
  • deliver faster lifting speeds without accumulating excessive heat
  • offer high-speed reduction in minimal spaces
  • generate safe lifting without requiring controls or high-maintenance mechanisms
  • self lock, making them ideal for hoisting and lifting applications
  • produce minimal noise and low vibration
  • possess excellent shock-absorbing capabilities


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 particularly popular for the installation and removal of engines and landing gear for a wide range of aircraft for Airbus, Boeing and most major airlines, worldwide.
