Scissor docks, also known as scissor lift tables or simply lift tables, are hydraulic lifting platforms used to raise and lower materials or goods to different elevations. They are commonly used in warehouses, manufacturing facilities, and distribution centers to facilitate the movement of heavy loads between different levels of the facility.
The scissor dock is named after its scissor-like design, which consists of a series of folding supports that extend and contract to lift and lower the platform. The lifting mechanism is typically hydraulic, which uses fluid pressure to raise and lower the platform. The platform can be raised to a variety of heights, depending on the application, and can be used to transfer materials between different levels of the facility, such as loading docks, trucks, and storage areas.
Scissor docks come in a variety of sizes and capacities, ranging from small units designed for light-duty applications to large, heavy-duty units capable of lifting several tons. They can be powered by electricity or pneumatic systems, and can be designed to meet specific requirements, such as explosion-proof or clean room environments.
One of the primary benefits of scissor docks is their ability to improve workplace efficiency and productivity. They can help reduce the need for manual lifting and carrying of heavy loads, which can reduce the risk of injury and increase productivity. Scissor docks can also help optimize storage space and improve inventory management by enabling easy movement of materials and goods between different levels of the facility.
Scissor docks are a versatile and efficient material handling solution that can help improve workplace safety, productivity, and efficiency. They are widely used in various industries and can be customized to meet specific requirements and applications.
Used scissor dock lifts are typically electric/hydraulically operated. These are ideal for a range of industrial warehouse applications. Scissor dock lifts will improve productivity and efficiency, while reducing workers injuries. Some scissor dock lifts are mobile or slotted to be able to be moved by a forklift increasing the versatility of this dock lift. Scissor dock lifts will allow workers to be more productive and reduce the risk of damaging goods when loading or unloading vehicles.
All used scissor dock lifts are inspected and tested prior to shipping to ensure that all hydraulic components are in excellent working order, and that only the highest quality used equipment leaves our warehouse.
