With our excellent capabilities, this 930002 Boeing Transmission Jack Hydraulic Telescoping Lift is readily available at Shoemaker Mfg Solutions. We also offer 930002 replacement parts, rebuild kits, and replacement parts.

    The Usage of part# 930002: The jacking equipment is used to install/Remove Airplane Components in Applications where the assistance of a Hydraulic Jack is required. Use Adapters as needed where a controlled interface with the Jack is required.

    Hydraulic Telescoping Lift

    The 930002 Hydraulic Telescoping Lift we supply at Shoemaker Mfg Solutions is manufactured in the United States through Boeing Manufacturing. It is typically used to lift, move, and position heavy loads with a maximum capacity of 2000 lbs. @ 10 degrees and 3000 lbs. @ 0 degrees. Its base width and length are 62” by 48”, with a lowered height of 47.5” and an extended height of 84”.

    As a result, this lift is ideal for carrying and supporting heavy items during aircraft repairs. It also has Swivel/Rigid Casters– ALBION 8” 5000 lbs. urethane (with swivel lock) wheels for excellent mobility and safety. Finally, 930002 lift’s pumps have fast and slow mode, constituting 0.5” to 0.1” strokes respectively.

    Basic Components

    Although there are numerous variations of lift tables, like the 930002 lift used in the aerospace industry, they all utilize similar components to function:

    • A hydraulic cylinder holding a piston
    • A reservoir for an oil repository
    • A pump for rendering fluid energy
    • A hand pump for inducing mechanical power no added power source needed.
    • Valves for controlling fluid flow

    Interacting Systems

    When lifting an object, the hydraulic lift’s pump pushes incompressible oil from the oil reservoir toward the cylinder. This power pushes the piston upward, which provides the necessary force to raise the lift. Once the preferred height is achieved, the pump will be switched off, and the trapped oil in the cylinder holds the lift. Finally, the pump will have to be turned on to return the lift to its original position.

    Hydraulic lifts function using the following interacting systems:

    • Circuits: manipulates the flow and pressure of the oil or liquids inside the reservoir
    • Pumps: converts mechanical energy to hydraulic energy that forces the liquid to move upward
    • Hand Pump : transforms hydraulic energy into torque and rotation
    • Cylinder: converts hydraulic energy to force and generates pressure in the fluid
    • Piston: thrusts upward in reaction to fluid pressure and is located inside the cylinder
    • Fluid: allows power to be transferred in the system (glycol ether, organophosphate ester, polyalphaolefin, propylene glycol, or silicone oil)

  7. Guide Laser Cutting Materials

    Comments Off on Guide Laser Cutting Materials
    Click to ExpandGuide Laser Cutting Materials

    One of the most significant advantages of laser cutting technology is its ability to perform high-precision cutting for a wide range of materials, making it a popular and versatile manufacturing process in several industries like aerospace, defense, marine, and commercial sectors.

    At Shoemaker MFG Solutions, Inc., we offer laser cutting services and technology capable of meeting many project specifications. Some of the laser cutting materials we work with include aluminum, carbon, and stainless steel.

    If you are a neophyte in using laser cutting and thinking of what types of objects you can create with it, or you are a more knowledgeable manufacturer who wants to experience a new way to develop laser-cut parts, this article is for you! We compiled a list and overview of different laser cutting materials you can use on your manufacturing projects.


    Metal is the most common material for laser cutting. A CO₂ laser cutter performs high cutting speed that can cut carbon steels as thick as 3/4″ in., and aluminum and stainless steels with up to 3/8″ in. thickness. Laser-cutting metal materials allow you to drill, engrave, weld, or ablate laser-cut parts. A CO2 laser cutter emits a beam that vaporizes metal and uses gas to assist in heating the material or blowing away debris. It also employs software programs to cut out precise and accurate dimensions.

    The fiber laser cutter is a better option for cutting through thinner metal sheets and is also ideal for marking and engraving metals like brass, copper, aluminum, and stainless steel.

    Shoemaker MFG Solutions, Inc. uses the latest laser cutting technology, including SolidWorks and RADAN Estimating and Nesting, to deliver our customers’ unique designs and project specifications.


    The energy of a CO₂ laser beam is easily absorbed by most plastics causing it to heat up and vaporize rapidly, resulting in smooth and straight edges with zero to minimal burn marks. Some examples of common plastic materials used for laser cutting include polyoxymethylene (POM), acrylic or synthetic polymer (PMMA), polyethylene (PE), polyester, and styrene. However, not all types of plastics are ideal for laser cutting as some of them can melt or burn quickly.


    CO₂ laser cutters and engravers are commonly used in creating wood material prototypes or making wooden toys. The typical types of wood used in laser cutting are plywood, bamboo, and MDF (medium-density fiberboard). They are inexpensive, and their thickness can be regulated, which makes them ideal for laser cutting.

    Paper & Cardboard

    The CO₂ laser’s wavelength is effortlessly absorbed by the paper, which allows for high-precision contours on this material. Laser evaporates paper forms instantly, leaving no smoke or burn residue on the surface. Laser cutting paper is perfect for making individual engravings and decorations for cardboard packaging.


    It may be a seemingly impossible task to laser-cut glass because of its fragile and reflective properties. However, using laser cutters is far more efficient than the traditional ways of cutting this material. A laser cutting machine lowers the chances of horizontal cracks and chipping edges when used in glass. The most common wavelength for cutting glass is 10,600 nm or infrared light from a CO₂ laser. The glass absorbs around 80% of the energy, thus giving that wavelength a solid ability to cut the glass faster and more precisely. However, fiberglass is not applicable for laser cutting because it has epoxy resin that can emit toxic fumes upon contact with lasers.


    While foams may not be as popular as other laser cutting materials, they are an excellent option especially suitable for suitcase inserts, padding, casing, or seals. Popular foam materials used for laser cutting include Depron, EPM, Gator, polyester (PES), polyethylene (PE), polyurethane (PUR), and neoprene. Note that two foam materials are not applicable in laser cutting because they can quickly catch fire – polystyrene and polypropylene foam.


    Textiles are new materials for laser cutting, particularly in digital embroidery, and it allows for a more efficient and cost-effective embroidery process than its traditional means of production. Since textile was recently used for laser cutting, the range of fabric options is currently limited.
