Scissor lift tables with indexing turntables
16 January 2018
Tecmach has supplied a series of scissor lift tables which have indexing turntables to improve efficiency and safer manual handling in a manufacturing facility. It was part of a drive to reduce operator fatigue when transfering finished steel components from automated CNC machine onto trays on stillage.
The scissor lift tables – in both 1 and 2t versions – have a heavy duty rectangular turntable on which the steel transport stillage can easily be loaded. The turntable has eight detent indexing positions so the operator can build the layers uniformly whilst easily reaching the entire stacking area without excessive stretching. This reduces fatigue and removes the risk of damage to the product as it can easily be positioned without contact with adjacent components.
The turntable has electronic position detection, so the scissor lift table can only be lowered when the turntable is correctly aligned with the platform; this is part of the safety feature that eliminate any risk of a trap point.
Control of the platform and loading height is by a heavy duty cast alloy foot switch so operators always have their hands free.
Tecmach also offers a full range of accessories to help customers best meet their mechanical handling requirements.
