Mobile Elevating Work Platforms (MEWPs) are machines powered & integrated with electrical, hydraulic & mechanical systems to provide a safe and efficient solution to manpower for working at height.
MEWPs were originally used to pick fruits and especially cherries from the trees. Over a period of time, the technology has evolved and today it is being used for any height application you can think of right from changing a household light bulb to changing an aviation light on top of an industrial chimney.

MEWPs are work platforms which are just one key away to get your team ready for ‘work at height’ jobs. MEWPs come with Engine Powered as well as Eco-Friendly powered options such as DC source and AC source.
It is a simple and an automated equipment which according to its working envelope will assist you in reaching a point at height within seconds to minutes. MEWPs are also equipped with driving wheels making them easy to travel over short distances.
MEWPs were invented for safe working of manpower at height. The lifting technology is based on hydraulics and mechanical components. The electrical components on the machine make them more ergonomically pleasing. There are multiple layers of safety to make sure that the platform doesn’t free fall or topple over. Mechanical Safety Check includes, Mechanical arm joints and pin joints. There are check valves along with each hydraulic cylinder which makes sure that the boom does not free fall in cases of loss of pressure anywhere in the hydraulic system. Electrical/Electronic sensors such as load sensors, limit switches, Force Sensing Operator Console, etc. have exponentially increased manpower safety.
