At our manufacturing facility in California, we use state-of-the-art equipment and techniques both for engineering and manufacturing. This enables us to be creative as we partner with our clients to produce custom solutions. Wiggins Lift is known for our custom engineering, unlike other manufacturers who produce assembly-line forklifts.
This includes custom attachments for material handling of tires, rebar, large spools, and more; low-profile lifts for small spaces; ordnance handling forklifts for use aboard ships, and more. But we also design and build more unusual solutions. Here are just three examples:
Residential trash trucks deal with a pretty dirty environment. Wiggins was asked to design and manufacture a cylinder that could not only perform well, but weigh less than previous solutions. A lighter truck means a more trash can be transported at once, saving time and money. The addition of a rod scraper consistently removes debris from the cylinder, protecting the seals and increasing reliability.
Drill Rig Modifications and Load Stands
Drilling rigs are fraught with complex regulations and requirements. Wiggins designed and manufactured a self-erecting stand with a BOP (Blow-Out Preventer) to keep the drillers safe as they work above the well head. Because it was self-erecting, it removed the need and expense of a standard crane installation. Tested to 150 tons, the need for safety and precision was paramount. Wiggins delivered.
Stationary Mask and Lift Cylinders
Because Wiggins designs and manufactures its own lift cylinders, we can provide solutions for stationary lift applications. For example, the need to lift a heavy-duty entertainment lighting and laser array from an underground position to 70 feet above ground. The cylinders had to sustain high cycles and have a long life. Another example of Wiggins’ ability to engineer solutions to unique situations.
Wiggins has been designing and building equipment for the agriculture industry throughout its long history. We pride ourselves on machinery that is dependable and easy to maintain. In fact, Wiggins Lift got its start in the fields of the Oxnard Plain in California by building innovative machines that could be easily serviced in the fields.
We can design, engineer, and manufacture any product to your needs.
