March 2, 2016, 2:36 pm - Pentalift fabricates a full line of pre-engineered lift tables for typical ergonomic applications, however our true specialty is in reviewing a customer's unique application and then engineering and fabricating custom lift tables to provide solutions for their requirements. Pentalift was recently approached by a technical school to assist in the design of a custom lift table for their waste management process. The table offered 40,000lb capacity and provided full length wheel guides with end stops and rubber impact protection. The lift table with wheel guides needs to service multiple preset heights, and was offered with maintained travel controls where the table automatically travels to two different preset height with a single touch of the button.

If a lift table is used in an industrial setting for positioning or in an ergonomic application then standard enamel paint finish is usually acceptable. Upgrading to epoxy paint finish provides optimum protection against abrasion, corrosive fluids, extreme temperature and impact. Pentalift's standard paint color is gray, however you can upgrade to any desired custom color. Lift tables can also be galvanized for use in wash down applications or even manufactured from 100% stainless steel for use in the “direct contact” food processing industry. When the overall design parameters have been finalized then the Sales Representative can suggest the most suitable finish for the application.

The result is a lift table with a dual direction sliding platform, and with safety elements that prevent the slide from operating until the lift table has exited the pit, and once the lift table is out of the pit, additional safety elements that will ensure the slide has returned to the home position before permitting the lift table to return into the pit.
