To carry out assembly work on and under large, heavy frames, our customer has decided on the illustrated lift table combination with flow divider. The following article explains the advantages of this combination ...
The lift table combination consists of two individual lift tables and is powered by a central power unit. With a total lifting capacity of 8 tons, the frames can not only be easily raised to the desired work height, but are also easier to work on. Decisive for the easier handling are:
- The distance of 3,500 mm between the two lift tables.
- The narrow platforms.
- The raised base frames.
While the open space between the lift tables, in contrast to a tandem lift table, allows work to be carried out on the underside of the frames, the narrow platforms provide better access to the frame. The raised base frames achieve the same effect. They give the employee more “foot-room” during assembly work. A plus for efficient and ergonomic working conditions.
As the frame is lifted by two individual scissor lifts, the lifts must operate absolutely synchronously to prevent the frame from sliding down. In this case, synchronisation is achieved by a static flow divider. The flow divider ensures that the frame is always lifted evenly, even if the load is unevenly distributed.
Additional safety is provided by electrically pilot-operated check valves on the cylinders. If there is a leak, there is no need to fear that the lifting device will sink uncontrollably.
See for yourself how two scissor lifts that are not mechanically connected are raised absolutely synchronously, even with uneven load distribution. Simply click on the video below:
