Herkuless Lift Systems Are Utilized by NASA for the Ares I-X Constellation Program
Walled Lake, Michigan. Herkules Equipment Corporation worked closely with United Space Alliance (USA) for the upcoming Ares I-X mission by customizing a lift system that enabled rocket engineers to securely load 2400 pound parachutes into a booster rocket. Herkuless engineering team designed the lift system to meet all of USAAs unique specifications including raised height, travel, foot print, portability and all strict NASA safety standards with a 3 times safety factor. The lifts are currently used at the Kennedy Space Center in Cape Canaveral, Florida.
The purpose of the three lift systems is to accurately raise the 3 large rocket sizedd parachutes independently to meet the top section of the booster rocket. The parachutes are then packed correctly and ultimately deployed in the first stage separation +123 seconds after lift-off. Fork pockets allow the lift to be moved when and where it is needed. The small footprint, combined with the required high raised height, created unique safety challenges that were answered in the design process to USAAs satisfaction, guided by strict regulations.
It was great to see things come together as planned! Thank you again for all the supportt wrote the USA Ares 1st Stage GSE IPT Lead.
Herkuless pneumatic lift systems are virtually maintenance-free, with no messy fluids or costly cylinders to replace. The power source, Herkuless Air Bagg technology, provides a patented direct one-to-one lift ratio, eliminating stress on the scissors, minimizing wear and maintenance. The lifting motion is smooth and stable. The heavy-duty air bags are built for rugged daily use giving facilities a lifetime of trouble-free operation.
Herkules Equipment Corporation has been manufacturing Pneumatic Lifting Equipment for over 20 years, including (standard and custom); Lift Tables, Lift & Rotates, Lift & Tilts, Human Lifts, Power Rotate Systems, Lifts for Integration, Cart Positioners, Pallet Positioners, and Vehicle Lifts.

Bosch Rexroth Canada Receives ISO 14001:2004 RegistrationRexroth confirms commitment to developing and executing environmental management standards for today and tomorrow.
Bosch Rexroth Canada (BRCA), a leading supplier for industrial, mobile and automation applications, announced that its Welland, Ontario facility recently received ISO 14001:2004 registration.
The ISO registration signifies that BRCA has committed to conform and comply with the ISO 14001:2004 standards as well as the applicable environmental legislation and regulations required. The registration also indicates that BRCA has developed a plan for continually improving its environmental performance well into the future.
Obtaining an ISO 14001:2004 registration shows our customers that we hold ourselves to the highest environmental standards in the world,, said Boyd de Waard, president of BRCA. We examined our environmental system closely and developed a plan that met each of ISOOs benchmarks. As a result, weere confident that weere environmentally compliant on the local, regional, national and international levels,, he said.
The company assigned resources as needed to satisfy the ISO requirements. Achieving the ISO 14001:2004 registration required that Bosch Rexroth Canada deploy a team to develop an implementation plan and participate in an environmental compliance audit monitored by a capable third party overseer. The entire process included completion of internal audits and a stage-one third party readinesss audit prior to the registration audit.
Marco Gervasio, project manager for the Bosch Rexroth implementation, stated that while principal organizations in Europe and developed areas of Asia tend to be more aggressive in obtaining ISO 14001:2004 registration, North America is now coming on board as well.
Bosch Rexroth Canada is one of about 3,000 Canadian companies that have received this registration,, said Gervasio. That number is relatively low considering the number of companies and notable organizations operating nationwide. Bosch Rexroth has made this registration mandatory for all its sites globally. Being good stewards of the environment is a responsibility the company takes seriously,, he said.
