A lift table is a device that utilizes a scissor mechanism to raise product, pallet loads, etc. Applications for lift tables include pallet handling, vehicle loading, and positioning product to be worked on. Positioning product at the proper height to be worked on really helps reduce work related injuries because workers are no longer bending over or reaching up to work. There are many advantages of having lift tables in a warehouse. Some of these advantages include enhanced safety, lower injury to workers, portable, higher efficiency, compact design, easy to use, and equal weight distribution.
Lift tables are commonly powered using hydraulic cylinders that are pressurized via an electric pump. This actuates the scissor lifting mechanism, allowing the table to raise. There are also pneumatic lift tables, as well as hydraulic foot pumps for loads that are not very heavy. Manual lift tables are ideal for lighter loads, and we even stock manual lift table carts for added mobility, which makes for a great alternative to a battery stand for forklifts. American Surplus has a wide variety of lift tables in stock for all of your material handling needs.
