Bespoke Lifting Solutions

Who is CueSim?

CueSim manufacture advanced helicopter simulators world-wide. Their unique selling point is the use of a standard ‘pod’, which house projectors, display screens and interchangeable cockpits of different helicopters, providing high fidelity helicopter flight training with minimum maintenance costs and maximum reliability.

The Challenge

CueSim approached Advanced Handling to help solve their manual handling issue.

The Solution

After initial discussions, it became clear a bespoke solution was required with a Scissor Table which could function in three ways:

  1. To act as an aid to loading and unloading the cockpit modules with the use of a roller bed and winch.
  2. To act as a working platform with a solid deck to stand on with hand rails all around.
  3. To act as a maintenance platform for the cockpit modules with access from underneath the table.

The table measured 2.7m long by 2.2m wide with a closed height of 1.4m, a raised height of 3.1m and capacity of 1500kg.

The Benefits

The scissor lift met all three requirements proving an invaluable tool to CueSum.

From start to finish, we were extremely impressed with the consistent communication and high level project management that Advanced Handling had to offer. Following the initial site visit it was clear to us that Advanced Handling would successfully deliver the project to their highest capability – to which they did, without fail.
