Equipment that falls into this category can include:

This type of equipment is best handled with job specific tools, such as friction free skates, air suspended transport vehicles, computer 'cages', and custom designed gantry systems. Fragile Equipment needs to be handled with extra care and diligence.

Much of this equipment consists of delicate circuit boards often encased in a fairly sturdy frame which has been covered with flimsy plastic or sheet metal panels. Various switches, knobs and other fragile objects may protrude out from the panels. All this must be carefully packed.

Great care is needed in lifting and securing these items onto a transport vehicle, so as to not crease the panels and/or break any switches etc.

This equipment, because of its fragility, often takes longer to move than much heavier, bulkier machines.
