What is Pentalift LTNI?

LTNI stands for “Lift and Tilt Non-Intrusive”. Components are often shipped in bins and during the loading and unloading process a combination of a lift table and a tilter positions the bin in the most ergonomically correct position for the operator. Conventional tilters force the operator to step back when the bin is tilted towards them. In many applications where there are no space restrictions this model of lift and tilt works well. The Pentalift LTNI is a combination of a lift and tilt that does not force the operator to step backwards through its unique design. This model of lift and tilt is ideally suited for working in tight congested areas where space is premium.

When would you order a lift table with a remote power unit?

When would you order a lift table with a remote power unit? Many designs of lift tables have the electric power units designed to be self-contained or internal. In some cases such as a wash down application, a paint shop environment etc. it is common to order the lift table with a remote power unit to avoid potential sparking. The speed of a lift table is often an important factor in a lift table application, to increase the lift/lower speed a larger pump/motor assembly is required and physically will not fit under the lift table. Lift tables are generally trouble free however some company’s maintenance departments prefer all power units be remote and readily accessible in the event of a maintenance requirement.

Semi Portable Lift Tables

A semi portable lift table has two rollers on one end of the frame and a removable dolly handle on the other end. With the dolly handle removed, the lift table frame sits on the floor. If the lift table is to be moved to a different location, the dolly handle is positioned lifting the frame clear of the floor on to the two fixed wheels. This permits a lift table to be portable while maintaining a comparatively low height. Due to the portability, lift tables are provided with a self-contained 115/1/60 power unit and either a hand held push button or foot pedal controls. One semi portable lift table can service multiple work stations.
