Lifting Boom Installed

lifting boom for waterjet

Recently a 13-foot long, 600-pound lifting boom was installed in the Engineering Machine Shop. Once installation is complete, it will hoist heavy objects into and out of the waterjet cutter. This boom will do the work that students and staff have done in the past. Installing the boom required moving the lights up and adding some new lights. Now EMS has a boom and better illumination in that room.

The waterjet had just completed cutting some circles when I stopped in to look at the boom.
