Scissor lifts table to increase productivity

Supplier: Safetech
29 November, 2011

Components are moved along fixed height benches as the products have parts added.

The Problem:

The height of the products vary greatly requiring the operator to bend or stretch to reach upper and lower parts during assembly.  Fixed height benches cause fatigue and strain injuries

Alternatives:

  • Limit tasks to different benches (not practical)
  • Walki-stacker lifters to raise/lower products (limited platform size and also unstable)

Product Chosen:

A Safetech AS1-900 hydraulic lift table was chosen and positioned between the fixed height benches

Benefits of this product:

  • Large stable work platform
  • Provides ergonomic load positioning
  • No installation costs (Unit sits on floor)
  • Simple press button Up/Down operation
  • 240 volt operation  -  no special power requirements (415 volt available for higher duty cycle)
