Why APPI:  Dynavac is one of the leading manufacturers of high-vacuum systems that are used for manufacturing processes such as thin film deposition and applications as diverse as simulating the conditions in deep space.  To meet a customer’s operating requirements, they needed to provide a system with a guillotine door that measured 7 feet by 8 feet and a full inch thick.  Weighing 5,000 pounds, this door travels 10 feet inside a set of vertical guides.  Based on the parameters of this application, which included the availability of 460 volt 3 phase power, we provided a Columbia HL15000-4A17-L-05 base mounted hoist along with a top mounted vertical lead sheave to assist in proper spooling of the galvanized wire rope.
