Lift and tilt scissor lift table
This lift and tilt scissor lift table has a platform that can be independently raised or tilted to an angle of 45 degrees. It is used work ergonomic work positioning. This particular unit has a single acting hydraulic cylinder. Eccentric loads or loads that have a centre of gravity that extends over the side of the tilting deck can be supplied with double acting cylinders. Loads must be securely fixed to the lifting device.
Another method of providing a tilting work station is to design the arm sets to be of different lengths.
The scissor lift table and the tilting mechanism will be custom built to the end user requirement. Lift and tilt units help reduce musculoskeletal disorders (MSDs) as they accurately present the work to the worker reducing the risk of lifting and bending. Users of such equipment must think of the risks associated with lifting and lowering loads, especially crush, trap, sheer and loads falling off the platform.
