… through standard modules

The widespread use of hydraulic lift tables is attributed, among other things, to their versatility. Our scissor lift platforms can be easily customized to meet your individual needs through additional modules.

On this page, we provide you with an overview of the most common additional equipment for our lift tables. If you have specific requirements, please do not hesitate to contact us. Together, we will find a solution.

Modules for the platform

Roller conveyors

Thanks to a roller conveyor, loads can be effortlessly moved onto or off the platform. For our lifting platforms, we offer roller conveyors with or without drive as an option. The transported goods can be conveyed in the longitudinal or transverse direction. This additional feature is particularly popular with our work lift tables.

Railings

The standard equipment when people or goods need protection on the platform. Our railings are available in three versions: plug-in, screw-on, or permanently welded.

Of course, we also offer the appropriate access doors for your lift table or elevating work platform.

Portal railings

In certain cases, it is possible to forego an electromechanical locking mechanism for the upper access door and instead use a portal railing. If the conditions for a portal are met, we will inform you and offer the cost-effective alternative.

Tilting platform

When lifting the load is not sufficient and an additional tilt is required, our tilting platforms are the ideal solution.

Rotary platform

If you require not only lifting but also a rotating motion, we are pleased to offer you the option of mounting a rotary platform on your scissor lift table. Upon request, we can supply the rotary platform with or without its own drive.

Prism platform

The prism structure is ideal for transporting coils or other round, rod-shaped loads. The platform geometry resembles an inverted triangle, ensuring sufficient load securing at all times.

Loading flaps

When the lifting table is used for loading and unloading vehicles, we recommend the use of loading flaps. These bridge the gap between the loading lift table and the vehicle, and also compensate for minor height differences.

Roll-off protection

When transporting a load on rollers without a locking brake, roll-off protection must be provided with the lift table. We offer permanently welded, plug-in, or automatic roll-off protections for you to choose from.

Chequer plate

When the platform is accessed by individuals, a non-slip surface is required. This can be easily achieved by using chequer plate.

Mechanical platform interlock

If the lift table remains in the upper lifting position with a heavy load for an extended period, an electromechanical interlocking of the platform can be beneficial.

To secure the platform, pins or bolts are driven into corresponding locking pockets, preventing unintentional lowering.

Platform reinforcement

If the lift table is to be passed over by forklifts or other vehicles in the lowered position, additional reinforcements may need to be incorporated into the platform.

Simply provide us with the expected wheel loads for the lift table, and we will take care of the further design.

Inspection door

If the drive is housed inside the lift table, a inspection door in the platform may be necessary. This allows access to the hydraulic unit and control system for maintenance or repair work.

Toe protection safety strips

Toe protection safety strips are installed on the underside of the platform and are designed to protect body parts, especially feet, from potential crush hazards.

Extensions for the subframe

Chassis

Not all scissor lift platforms are used in a stationary manner. That's why we also offer mobile lift tables. In our product range, you will find wheel and rail chassis, which can be supplied with or without a drive as desired.

Further information can be found in our article: 'Lift tables with chassis'.

Subframe as oil pan

If work on the lift table involves frequent oil loss, or if you are installing the lift table in a water protection area, please inform us. We can provide you with a fully enclosed and oil-tight welded subframe.

Forklift pockets

In the standard configuration, our lift tables are supplied with eye bolts and threaded rods, allowing for easy repositioning using lifting chains. 
If you intend to regularly move the lift table with a forklift, we are happy to provide forklift pockets to facilitate the quick movement of the lift table from point A to B.

Raised subframe

If you need a small lift table and would like to easily move it with a manual lift truck, we offer the following solution: We provide feet under the subframe, allowing easy insertion with a standard manual lift truck.

Control and sensors

Foot control

For some tasks, it is advantageous to have hands-free operation. For this purpose, we offer a foot control, allowing you to carry out your work seamlessly.

Optical sensor cycle control

Precise material feed is crucial, especially in automated machinery. For this purpose, we offer an optical sensor cycle control that moves the lift table up or down in a cyclical manner. This ensures a defined transfer height. Once all sheets or plates have been removed or placed on the lift table, the platform automatically returns to the lower position to accommodate a new pallet.

Lift and lower limit switches

Lift and lower limit switches are necessary whenever reaching the upper or lower position needs to be signaled.

A classic example is their use within an automated production line. Adjacent components of the system need to be informed whether the lift table is in the upper or lower position and if the load can be removed or applied.

Intermediate stops

In some cases, it is necessary for the lift table to reach certain predefined positions during lifting and/or lowering. Please let us know in your request at which heights intermediate stops are required, and we will provide the corresponding sensors. The exact position of the stops can be adjusted on-site, allowing for easy consideration of construction tolerances.

Explosion-proof configuration

When the lift table is used in a potentially explosive atmosphere, special safety measures need to be implemented. Please specify the zone you are considering in your request, and we will develop an appropriate solution concept.

Moist environments

If the lift table is used outdoors or exposed to moisture in any way, we provide the control and electronics in IP65 protection class. This reliably protects against potential damage from moisture.

 

Key switch for control unit

The majority of lift tables are designed to be operated only by trained personnel. To protect the lift table from unauthorized access, key switches can be used. These switches lock the operation, contributing to a safer handling of the lifting equipment.

Miscellaneous

Pit tray

When installing a lift table in an existing facility, the preliminary work typically proceeds as follows: the concrete floor is cut, the soil is excavated, the new pit is shuttered, and then the concrete is allowed to fully cure.

However, waiting for the concrete to cure can be costly, especially in production lines. Therefore, we offer an alternative solution: Instead of a concrete pit, a metal tray is cast. This eliminates the need to wait for the concrete to cure, allowing you to start production immediately.

Galvanized pit edge protection

When the lift table is installed within a pit, we recommend using pit edge protection. We offer two versions: pit edge protection for embedding in concrete or for anchoring. 
This allows for a clean transition to the lift table while simultaneously protecting the delicate concrete edge from breakage.

Underrun protection

During the lifting and lowering process, dangerous crushing and shearing points can arise on the lift table. Therefore, the use of underrun protection is often necessary.

We offer various options for underrun protection, including wire mesh, PVC roller, bellows, or sheet metal apron.

For more information, refer to our article: 'Underrun protection for scissor lift tables'.

Hot-dip galvanizing

In many cases, it is advisable not to paint the platform and subframe but to galvanize them. The constant use of the platform could cause the paint to chip over time.

Furthermore, the lift table is often placed in a pit. If drainage does not work properly, the subframe may be in contact with water, leading to damage to the paint. These issues can be avoided by using a galvanized scissor lift table.

Loading Ramp

With a loading ramp or wedge, lift tables or column lifts can be loaded with a manual lift truck or trolley, even if they are not installed in a pit. Loading ramps are available for both the narrow and long sides.

Stop doors

When the lift table is used for fixed transport between multiple levels, an additional safeguard for the stops is often necessary. A classic example is its use as a goods lift.

Lift shaft made of tubular frame

Our lift shaft provides an economical alternative to an on-site concrete shaft. It consists of a square tube frame with hot-dip galvanized sheet metal. The interior and the clearances to the lift table are designed in a way that additional platform doors may be omitted, and the electromechanical locks of the stops can be easily integrated.

Lift shaft made of sandwich panels

For better thermal insulation, in addition to our lift shafts made of tubular frames, we also offer complete shafts made of sandwich panels. In this construction, the precision fit to the lift and the seamless integration of electromechanical door locks are ensured.
