How does a table lift?

Usually, the lifting tables are electro hydraulic. They require electrical power to operate and incorporate a hydraulic group consisting of an oil tank, an engine and a pump. The assembly “pushes” the oil makes the cylinders that raise the table. The lowering of the lifting table is usually done by an electro valve that “releases” the oil from the cylinders so that the lifting table descends.

What load capacity does this equipment support?

The weight range varies according to models and features, from 400 kg to 8000 kg in standard. In customized projects we have made tables up to 40 tons.

What do I need to be able to define the table I need?

The basic variables are, desired platform size, desired path and load capacity. If you want an offer of a lifting table, fill out this questionnaire and we will send you an offer with the best value for money equipment that fits your needs

Do the lifting tables need a pit?

That depends on the application. Generally, if loading and unloading is done with a pallet truck, it will always be necessary to have the table in the pit unless we talk about models of extra-flat tables, designed for loading and unloading with pallet trucks without the need for a pit.

What maintenance do these equipments require?

The maintenance of a lifting table depends on the use it has and the manufacturer’s instructions. Usually with an inspection every 3 or 6 months is usually sufficient. Unlike elevators (people lifts) where maintenance must be performed by an approved company, the maintenance of the hydraulic tables can be done by any technician properly trained (usually reading and understanding the manual is sufficient).

Can a lift table lift people?

Usually not. Most of the manufacturers manufacture these equipments according to norm EN1570 norm for elevation of static loads. The load must be stable and can not protrude beyond the limits of the upper platform of the lifting table

What is the difference between a scissor lift table and a forklift or column lift?

In both cases we speak of equipment, usually electro hydraulic with single or multiple cylinders of simple effect, the most striking differences between both systems are:

The lifting table is self supporting, the column elevator needs to be able to fix the columns to wall or to a metal structure made for this purpose.
The required pit of the lifting tables is usually greater than that required by the column lifts.
The lift table usually makes better use of the available space because, unlike forklifts or column elevators, it does not require columns that take up useful space.
At the price level, there are both cases, for an application the lift table can be more expensive than the column lift (for example when a lot of travel is required and a small platform). The column lift is usually more expensive than the scissor table when the required travel is not very high and requires a large platform (for example, a mountaineer to connect two floors)
