Worm Drive Hoists Manufacturer Charlotte

So what are the advantages of a worm drive?  As compact devices, worm drives offer a surprising high-load capacity, and if your Charlotte facility is in need of precise linear motion for heavy-lift operations, a worm drive hoist is your ticket to streamlined production!

The worm gear advantage is about the worm being able to turn the gear but the gear not being able to turn the worm.  This acts as a secondary brake, and OSHA recognizes this feature as an approved method of controlled braking.

Regardless of what industry your Charlotte facility is involved in, Morgan Aero – as a worm drive hoists manufacturer – offers these gems for any type of application.  From aerospace, automotive, and construction, to mining, steel/metals fabrication, and waste-water treatment, our in-house fabricated worm drive hoists offer immense versatility for diverse heavy-lift and material movement needs.

Worm Drive Hoists – Indispensable for Your Charlotte Business

Industries around the world select Morgan Aero’s worm drive hoists because worm gear motors offer more-quiet operation compared to other types of gears.  Additionally, worm gears provide high-reduction ratios and correspondingly high torque multiplication.

In a nutshell, worm drive hoists:

  • easily turn the gear but do not allow the gear to turn the worm
  • sustain long lifts without overheating and premature failure
  • deliver faster lifting speeds without accumulating excessive heat
  • offer high-speed reduction in minimal spaces
  • deliver low maintenance due to fewer moving parts
  • generate safe lifting without requiring controls or high-maintenance mechanisms
  • self lock, making them ideal for hoisting and lifting applications
  • offer minimal noise, low vibration, and excellent shock-absorption


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 for Airbus, Boeing, and almost all major airlines, worldwide.
