There are many customizable options that can be added to lift tables to better suit your application. When sourcing a lift table, the following core requirements must be provided in order to determine the best model for your needs.
Load Capacity – What is the maximum load the lift table will need to handle? Will this load be centered and uniform on the table, or will there be an obvious offset, point or edge load that will need to be accommodated?
Platform Dimensions – What are the ideal platform dimensions? There can be restrictions on platform sizes, however a base model will be selected that will be closest to your request. Minimum widths can be impacted by stability ratios and/or room for cylinders. Minimum lengths can be impacted by the scissor leg requirements to achieve the required vertical travel.
Travel – How high do you need the load lifted? If you are installing the lift table onto a floor, the overall RAISED HEIGHT may be achieved through a combination of the fully lowered height of the table and the potential VERTICAL TRAVEL. If you are installing the equipment into a pit, the overall height will need to be provided entirely by the vertical travel. This is a critical characteristic when selecting the base model.
As mentioned, there are a wide variety of custom features that can be added to lift tables. The above characteristics will serve as a good starting point for developing a concept and budget for a lift table, regardless of your application.
