Benefits of the Scissor Lift Table in A Warehouse

Introduction • The scissor lift table is a piece of material handling equipment that has been designed for lifting loads in the warehouse and in industrial environments. • This work platform lifts by use of crisscrossing supports which act beneath the scissor table to lift whatever is on it. Scissor lift tables can work via hydraulic, pneumatic or mechanical power to reach whatever height is needed — up to 60 feet with some models — and are some of the most sought-after pieces of material handling equipment when it comes to the operation of heavy equipment in industries where lifting is often necessary. • What are the advantages of having this trusted type of lift table in the warehouse?

If your warehouse makes use of a hydraulic scissor lift table, you will see the following benefits: • Hydraulic scissor lift tables are often durable and made to last. They can lift and position very heavy machinery, equipment and other weighty objects in warehouses, construction projects, factories, remodeling projects, major reconstruction, and more. • When loading and unloading trucks, hydraulic lift tables can be quite helpful in aiding the process. It will lessen the timeframe it takes to load the truck by hand. It also helps lessen the number of employees it takes to load and unload. • Overall, hydraulic scissor lift table make it easier for factories and warehouses to work efficiently. They lessen the time it takes to do a job while making the work environment safer. Ladders and other nuisances that can cause clutter in the factory can then be avoided.

Improves Productivity In palletizing and loading tasks, positioning the lift table at the optimum height for the specific task can reduce cycle times and improve the efficiency of the loading operation. Multiply the reduction in cycle time over many cycles, and across multiple workstations, and you get a strong economic case for scissor lifts.

Wide Variety of Options There are many options for how a scissor lift table lifts items, giving companies the flexibility to find the right model for the right area of their business. A wide variety of base sizes, platform sizes, and the height to which they’ll extend ensures that companies can choose an appropriate model for their needs.

Reduces Workplace Injuries Back injuries caused by heavy lifting are a major cause of accidents in the workplace as well as lost time incidents. A scissor lift provides a convenient method of lifting materials to the desired height. It eliminates the strain from combined vertical and horizontal plane lifting. When properly implemented, scissor lifts can reduce the risk of acute injuries associated with heavy lifting.

• It’s clear why the scissor lift table is the preferred ergonomic solution for material handling needs, positioning and vertical lifting in the warehouse. They improve worker productivity while reducing the potential for workplace injuries. However, take the time to choose the right material handling equipment for your place of work. • For example, not all workplaces need a hydraulic scissor lift table but might need another type of scissor lift. Any manufacturing engineer will be able to guide you as selecting the right lift table is essential in maintaining a safe and productive workplace environment.
