Madison, Ind. – Tata Motors, India’s largest automobile company, has approved two Rotary Lift electric hydraulic lifts for its dealer network. The approved SPOA10-3SA and AT07 two-post lifts are sold in India through Rotary’s distribution partner Manatec Electronics Pvt. Ltd.
“Tata Motors is one of the leading small car manufacturers in India. This segment represents about 70 percent of the country’s total vehicle sales,” says T.K. Surya Prakash, country sales manager for Rotary Lift in India. “Tata Motors is very selective about the companies it chooses to supply equipment to its dealer network. We are pleased to be able to provide Rotary Lift hydraulic lifts to help Tata dealers improve their service bay productivity.”
Rotary Lift is the world’s leading lift manufacturer, with regional business operation centers and ISO 9001-certified manufacturing facilities on three continents. Rotary Lift and its products have been approved by most of the world’s top vehicle OEMs.
“It is an honor to have earned the approval of Tata Motors, one of the fastest-growing vehicle manufacturers in the world,” says Matt Webster, vice president of global business development and marketing for Rotary Lift. “As the only lift manufacturer with a true global presence, Rotary Lift is positioned to provide Tata Motors and other vehicle OEMS with worldwide support.”
Electric hydraulic vehicle lifts like the SPOA10 and AT07 offer many advantages over mechanical screw lifts, including a lower overall cost of ownership. Mechanical lifts use rotating lift screws to move the swing arms up and down. These mechanical lifts have a number of design features that require regular maintenance, including bearings, belts or chains, nuts and spindles. Hydraulic lifts have no bearings, belts, chains, nuts or spindles. Their swing arms are powered by hydraulic cylinders. They use only one motor, compared to two for most mechanical lifts, and rise and descend in half the time of their mechanical counterparts. And while most mechanical lifts are synchronized with an electronic potentiometer that can lead to unleveling up to 10 cm., hydraulic lifts are automatically synchronized, eliminating any chance of the arms being unlevel.
The SPOA10 is one of Rotary Lift’s most popular vehicle lifts. It is a true asymmetrical lift, with columns that are rotated 30 degrees in order to place the car’s center of gravity in line with the optimum load capability of the columns. This design also enables technicians to fully open car doors to more easily access the vehicle interior, while minimizing door dings. The SPOA10-3SA specified by Tata Motors features three-stage arms that make it easy to properly lift vehicles with unibody construction, lower profiles and shorter wheelbases. Capacity is 10,000 lbs./4,500 kg. The SPOA10 has been third-party tested and certified to meet industry safety and performance standards.
The AT07 is an asymmetric lift with a small footprint. Just three meters wide, it provides maximum drive-through clearance with minimum external dimensions. Its compact size makes it the ideal size for small service bays and for replacing existing mechanical screw lifts. Like the SPOA10, the AT07 provides a clear floor, eliminating tripping hazards, facilitating the use of toolboxes and drain pans under the vehicle, and making it easy to work around. Capacity is 6,000 lbs./3,000 kg. Both lifts feature an overhead limit switch to prevent vehicles from being raised too high.
