Special functions

... through standard modules

The widespread use of hydraulic lift tables can be attributed, among other things, to their versatility. Our scissor lift can be easily adapted to your individual needs with additional modules.

This page provides you with an overview of the most common additional equipment available for our lift table. If you have special requirements, write to us and we will jointly find a solution.

Modules for the platform

Roller conveyors

Roller conveyors allows loads to be easily moved on or from a lift table. Roller conveyors with and without drive are available for our lift platforms, as well as for the longitudinal and transverse conveying of goods. The additional equipment for our lifting work table is particularly popular.

Railings

The standard equipment when people or goods on the platform need to be protected. Our railings are available in three versions: insertable, screw-on or welded.

It goes without saying that we can also supply you with suitable access doors for your lift table or your aerial work platform.

Gantry railings

In certain cases, an electromechanical locking mechanism of the top access door can be spared and a gantry railing can be used instead. If the conditions apply in your case, we will contact you and provide you with this cost-effective alternative.

Tilting platform

In many applications, lifting the load is not sufficient, but a tilting movement is also required. For this purpose we can supply you with a structure that easily takes care of this movement.

Rotating platforms

If a rotating movement is required in addition to the lifting movement, we will be happy to install a rotating platform on your scissor lift table. On request, we can supply this platform with or without its own drive.

V-block

The V-block is always handy when coils or other round, rod-shaped loads have to be moved.
The platform geometry resembles an inverted triangle, providing the ideal shape to sufficiently secure the load.

Loading flaps

If the lift table is used for loading and unloading vehicles, loading flaps should be provided. They bridge the gap between the loading lift table and the vehicle. At the same time, slight differences in height are compensated for.

Roll-stop

If the lift table is used to transport a load on rollers without a parking brake, a roll-stop must be provided.
We can provide either welded-on , insertable or automatic roll-stops for this purpose.

Chequer plate

If people walk on the platform, it must have a non-slip surface. The easiest way to meet this requirement is with chequer plate.

Mechanical platform lock

If the lift table remains in the top lifting position for a long time with high load, the electromechanical locking of the platform can be quite useful.

To secure the platform, pins or bolts extend into the corresponding bolt pockets to rule out the unintentional lowering of the lift.

Platform reinforcement

Additional reinforcements may have to be incorporated into the platform to allow a forklift truck or another vehicle driving over the lowered lift table.

Just tell us what wheel loads are to be expected for the lift table and we will take care of the design.

Maintenance opening

A maintenance opening in the platform may be required if the drive is housed inside the lift table. This allows access to the hydraulic unit and the control unit for cost-effective troubleshooting in the event of a defect.

Foot protection safety edges

Foot protection safety edges are attached to the underside of the platform and are intended to protect body parts (especially feet) from the risk of injury by crushing.

Please describe your application in sufficient detail so that we can provide the necessary safety measures for your application.

Extensions for the base frame

Undercarriage

Not every scissor lift is used in a stationary position. That is why we also supply mobile lift tables. We have wheel and rail undercarriages available, which can be supplied with or without drives.

Base frame as oil pan

If you carry out work on the lift table where oil is often spilled or if you live within a water protection area, please let us know. We will supply you with a completely closed base frame that is welded oil-tight.

Forklift pockets

The standard version of our lift tables are supplied with eyebolts and threaded rods which allow easy lifting with chain slings.
If you need to move the lift table regularly with a forklift, we can provide forklift pockets so that you can move the lift table faster from A to B.

Raised version

If you only need a small lift table and would like to be able to move it using a pallet truck, we can also provide you with a solution for this. In this case, we fit the base frame with feet so that a standard pallet truck can easily be pushed under it.

Controls and sensors

Foot control

For some jobs, it is an advantage to keep your hands free. The foot control for this purpose allows you to carry out your work without problems.

Optical sensor clock control

Clearly defined material feed is especially important in automated machines. We supply an optical sensor clock control that synchronises up or down movement of the lift table. This guarantees a defined transfer height. Once all sheets or plates have been removed or brought up by the lift table, it automatically returns to the bottom position so that a new pallet can be brought up.

Lifting and lowering limit switch

Lifting and lowering limit switches are always required when reaching the upper or lower position needs to be indicated.

A classic example is when it is used within an automated production chain. The adjacent plant components must be informed that the lift table is in the top or bottom position and that the load can be removed or brought up.

Intermediate stops

In some cases, the lift table should move to certain fixed positions when lifting and/or lowering. Just let us know at which heights an intermediate stop is required and we will provide the appropriate sensors. The exact position of the stops can still be changed on site, so that construction tolerances can be eliminated without major difficulties.

Ex version

If the lift table is used in a potentially explosive atmosphere, certain protective measures must be taken. Simply tell us in your enquiry which zone should be taken into account and we will develop the appropriate solution concept.

Moist environments

If the lift table is used outdoors or is otherwise exposed to moisture and dampness, we supply the control and electrical system in protection class IP65. They provide reliable protection against defects caused by moisture and dampness.

Key switch for the control unit

Most of the lift tables are designed to be operated by trained operating personnel only. Key switches can be used to protect the lift table against unauthorised access. They block operation and so facilitate the safe handling of the lifting equipment.

Miscellaneous

Pit troughs

If a lift table is installed in an existing hall, the site is typically prepared as follows: the concrete floor is cut open, the soil is excavated, the new pit is shuttered and then it is waited until the concrete has completely hardened.

However, the waiting time costs a lot of money, especially in production lines, so we would like to offer you an alternative: Instead of a concrete pit, a metal trough is inserted. So there is no need to wait for the concrete to harden, you can start earning money right away.

Galvanised pit edge protection

Pit edge protection should be provided if the lift table is installed in a pit. We can provide you with two versions for this purpose: either for setting in concrete or for fastening with anchor bolts.
The edge protection provides a clean transfer to the lift table and the sensitive concrete edge is protected against breakage at the same time.

Barrier

Dangerous crushing and shearing points are created on the lift table during lifting and lowering. This makes the use of barriers absolutely necessary in many cases.

We offer you have a choice between a barrier made of corrugated wire-mesh, a PVC roller screen, a bellows or a sheet metal apron.

Hot-dip galvanising

In many cases it is advisable not to paint the platform and the base frame but to galvanise them. Constantly driving over the platform would sooner or later cause the paint to flake off.

And the lift platform is often installed in a pit. If the drainage does not work properly, the base frame will stand in water and the paint is attacked. These problems can be prevented with a galvanised scissor lift table.

Ramps and ramp plates

Ramps and ramp plates allow lift tables to be loaded with a pallet ruck or trolley when they are not installed in a pit.

Also available for the long side.

Landing doors

If the lift table is used for fixed transport between several levels, an additional landing enclosure is often necessary. Avoid the trouble with the trade association or the TÜV. Purchase all the necessary safety equipment from a single source.

Lift shaft made of a tubular frame

Our lift shaft is the cost-effective alternative to an on-site concrete shaft. It consists of a Vk tube frame with strip-galvanised sheet metal. The inside and the distances to the lift table are chosen in such a way that additional platform doors are not necessary and of course the electromechanical locks of the landings can be integrated without any problems.

Lift shaft made of sandwich panels

For better thermal insulation, we also offer complete shafts made of sandwich panels in addition to our tubular frame lift shafts. This design also guarantees the accuracy of fit to the lift as well as the accommodation of the electromechanical door locks.
