Plant Visit with Presto ECOA

I had the chance to get out on a Rep training visit with Presto ECOA to the factory in Manila, AR. The reps from around the country were out there to get training on the new ECOA line and to be brought up to speed on how the transition is going.

Production is in full swing and lead times are improving every week. The engineering took some time to straighten out and we can expect steady improvement on delivery times.

Below are a few shots from the floor of the factory showing a few ECOA models being built.

Presto Adds ECOA to their Line of Products

In late 2016 ECOA became part of the Presto Lifts family. We are proud to continue the ECOA tradition of excellence that began in 1960.

Our line of ECOA Industrial Lifting Products include: Lift Tables, Extended Vertical Travel Lifts, Heavy-Duty Lifts, Upenders and Tilters, and Custom Designed Products.

An ECOA Lift Table that could withstand seismic variations


 ECOA Lift produced a lift table that could withstand seismic variations. This customer needed a lift table that could withstand seismic variations (earth quakes) and remain stable and safe. The material that is on the lift is very toxic and dangerous. The operation required the material to be loaded on a carrier and the carrier was rolled on to the lift and raised to a height that allowed to material to be moved off the lift to its final destination.

The red cylinders control the added legs used for stability in case of ground vibrations. The lift is raised and the legs are then moved to a vertical position and aligned with cup receivers and lowered it to those receivers for security.
The operating system can not operate unless all moving parts are in there correct position and only then will the lift operate. If at any time any of the movable components become out of position the lift will immediately stop until the situation is corrected.

Because of the proximity to a very hot area the paint and components had to be of special material to resist the heat.

Now that’s a long lift, ECOA Lifts

long For 30 years ECOA has been building extraordinary lifts for customers that have specific applications. Although this unit is in excess of 40 feet long it is not the longest unit that ECOA has ever built. Customer requirements in the past have caused ECOA to send lifts in two sections to be assembled on location.
