Custom Lift Table Applications

A number of years ago, Pentalift was successful in assisting a foundry and their requirements in the initial design stages. The foundry recently contacted Pentalift with the details of another project providing the same service as the original design with some modifications. For the history behind the first project, please click here. To see many different examples of our custom lift tables please click here

What Are The Different Operating Choices For Lift Tables?

There are 3 different operating types of lift tables. They are hydraulic, pneumatic and self leveling. All 3 styles are different but have their benefits, depending on what the application is. Hydraulic lift tables offer the widest range of features and customization regarding platform size, capacity, vertical travel, and safety features. Pneumatic lift tables are offered in an air bag design which is limited to 24” of travel. The air bag lift tables may be limited but if an airline is the only power source available to run the lift table, an air motor running a hydraulic system is available. Pneumatic lift tables are commonly used in wash down or areas where electrical sparking can cause a concern. Self leveling lift tables are mostly used for ergonomic applications. Self leveling lift tables require no power at all but do require a fork truck in order to load or unload the full pallet.
