Alternative anchoring of a stationary lift table

Our lift tables are designed for industrial purposes. They lift loads of 500 to 16,000 kg. This causes large forces to be exerted on the table. To prevent a stationary lift table from shifting during the lifting or lowering process, the scissor lift table must be fixed to the floor using anchor bolts. In this case, however, another solution had to be found to anchor the lift table ...

Not fastened with anchor bolts yet safe?

In this case heavy-duty anchor bolts could not be use to fasten the scissor lift table because important cables had been laid in the floor. To avoid drilling into the floor, we provided adjusting bolts on the side of the base frame. Once the lift table had been aligned, the scissor lift table was fixed using the adjusting bolts. For this purpose, the adjusting bolts were unscrewed and tightly clamped against the pit walls. This makes shifting the lift table impossible.

Bellows support

In the photo you can see flat bars welded onto the base frame. These are there to catch and support the bellows. The bellows serve as a barrier to protect the scissor area against unauthorised entry. If the bellows were to drop down all the way to the floor, the bellows would inflate, as the accumulated air could not escape from the bottom. The supports allow the air to escape.

All-round edge on the platform

The platform with its 30-mm-high and 5-mm-thick VA-edge serves as a border for the on-site floor covering. The result is that the lift table, when retracted into the pit, is not visually separated from the surrounding floor. This added feature is frequently chosen especially in office and residential buildings, where the external impression is important.
