Warehouses are usually packed with items from floor to ceiling. Access to these goods is essential, which is why a lift table is a crucial addition to any warehouse space.
Lift tables (most of which are also capable of tilting for ease of access to goods) raise and lower items throughout the warehouse. They’re capable of elevating or lowering big, weighty loads and are especially useful when it comes to handling pallets, loading vehicles and work positioning.
Employee safety is paramount in a workplace setting and lift tables and tilters help to reduce worker injury by making sure work stations are at appropriate heights.
Some common uses of lift tables:
- Convenient handling of goods and comfortable work positions;
- Loading vehicles and operating on docks;
- Positioning of loads when using conveyors;
- Handling roll cages and pallets;
- Positioning of materials in machine feeders.

- What’s going to be lifted?
- How will the lift table be operating?
- What are the needs in terms of safety?
- What’s the application?
Tilters often go hand-in-hand with table lifts. They’re made to tilt bins as ergonomically correctly as possible as items are removed or added from bins. Lift and tilt tables are often used in handling and assembly projects and in welding. Lift and tilt tables can operate together or independently. Those working independently of each other have more vertical travel and control of position at lower heights. Lift and tilt tables working synchronously have a low profile and designed being mindful of parts handling and correct positioning of containers at ergonomic heights and angles.
