Posted on September 29, 2017

Heavy duty vehicle lift manufacturer Stertil-Koni will debut its virtual reality (VR) experience at the American Public Transportation Association (APTA) EXPO, Oct. 9 to 11 at the Georgia World Congress Center in Atlanta, which will vividly showcase the company’s pioneering advances in heavy-duty vehicle lifts.

Attendees will get an unparalleled and previously inaccessible look — above and below ground — at the inner workings of an inground telescopic piston lift, the Diamondlift, and a true vertical rise, clear-floor-concept platform lift, the Skylift.

Attendees can get an “up-close and personal” look at the recently introduced Continuous Recess option on the Diamondlift. The Continuous Recess system is ideal for trucks, buses, and other heavy vehicles serviced at large transit maintenance shops and corporate fleet facilities.

VR participants can also get up close to the Diamondlift's additional features, such as the wide-variety of adapters that make lifting vehicles so much easier.

In addition, viewers can explore the Stertil-Koni Skylift, a heavy-duty platform lift that provides a “clear floor” concept for the end-user with a true, vertical rise. This product’s distinctive design includes two independent runways and no crossbeams, overhang or base frame. VR spectators can venture along the Skylift's Wash Bay model, which is fully water resistant and features hot tip galvanized platforms, ideal for cleaning the exterior and undercarriages of large vehicles.

At APTA, Stertil-Koni will display heavy-duty vehicle lifts that are all fully Buy America Compliant. There, visitors can see a real Skylift, Diamond, Ecolift, and wireless mobile column lifts in action.

Attendees can try out the ebright Smart Control System, an extension of the concept of human-machine-interface, providing greater control of the vehicle lift in an electronic notepad-style control panel, available on mobile column portable lifts and the Ecolift.

To experience Virtual Reality in Heavy Duty Vehicle Lifting at the APTA EXPO, attendees can visit the Stertil-Koni booth #6633 in Hall C.
