What is a scissor lift table

A scissor lift table is a mechanical device used to lift, lower and transport heavy loads. It consists of a platform raised by interlocking metal beams (scissor legs) operated by hydraulic or electric systems. The platform can be raised to a desired height, providing a stable elevated work surface, making it useful for a variety of tasks in industrial and manufacturing settings.

What is a scissor lift table used for?

Scissor lift tables can be used to move heavy items between different levels in a factory, assist with the loading or unloading of trucks, or bring items to the height of a production line. They are also used in warehouse and storage facilities to store items at different levels, and in maintenance and repair operations to lift large equipment for servicing or repairs.

How to use a hydraulic scissor lift table safely

  1. Before operating the scissor lift table, check the hydraulic oil and battery fluid levels, inspect components for damage and look for cracks and looseness in the structure.
  2. During operation, select a solid and flat ground, determine the weight of the load, making sure it does not exceed the maximum load capacity of the lift table, and place it evenly in the centre of the platform.
  3. Turn on the power to the scissor lift and check that the control buttons are functioning properly.
  4. Use the control buttons to raise the platform to the desired height. Make sure the platform is stable before moving the load.
  5. Carefully move the load to its desired location.
  6. When you have reached the desired location, lower the platform using the control buttons.
  7. Turn off the power: When you have finished using the lift table, turn off the power and check the hydraulic oil and battery fluid levels again.

It is important to follow the manufacturer's instructions and safety guidelines, including wearing appropriate personal protective equipment and following safe lifting practices. In case of power outage or other emergency, follow the emergency procedures outlined by the manufacturer.
