The Reference Materials Laboratory at NMISA required a mobile hoisting device capable of lifting and emptying heavy containers at various heights. Elevated access to laboratory equipment was also required. ASM designed a manually-operated mobile hoist and rotation mechanism capable of lifting and tilting a container weighing up to 150 kg. A mobile access platform was also designed.
