100% quality control
It doesn't matter whether you order one or twenty tandem lift tables. Every single one is subjected to a rigorous test .
Every enquiry is checked and processed by an experienced employee so that you get the ideal scissor lift table that meets your needs.
The basic design and structure of a tandem lift tandem lift table is similar to that of a single tandem lift table. In its simplest form it consists of:
- The platform for load-handling.
- The scissors for the lifting and lowering movement.
- The base frame for safe and secure stability.
Unlike the single version, however, the tandem lift table has two horizontally arranged scissor packs. When very long platforms and relatively low lifting heights have to be dealt with, this design is more cost-effective than the version with only one large scissor.
Tandem lifting tables also have two separate base frames. The scissor packs are mechanically only connected by the platform. This prevents the generation of unwanted constraining forces.
Hydraulic oil can be described as lazy. It always seeks the path of least resistance. This can cause problems in tandem lift tables for the following reason:
Because hardly anyone is capable of loading a lift table absolutely evenly, the two scissor packs of the tandem lift table are not loaded equally. The tendency of the hydraulic oil to take the easiest route will cause the scissor pack which is less loaded to be extended first. The platform is not raised evenly, presenting a risk that the platform will be raised at a slight angle. There are two ways to prevent this:
- The scissors of the tandem lift table are mounted as close together as possible; or
- It must be ensured that each cylinder receives the same quantity of oil.
Depending on the respective application, we use either the first or the second solution. If, for example, the dimensions of the tandem lift table guarantee that the scissor packs provide sufficient support for the platform, the first version is used. However, if the scissors are too far apart, we use a static flow divider. This guarantees an absolutely even lifting movement without the need for a complex and costly control and sensor system.
The low price as well as the many possibilities to customise and extend it make the scissor lift table a popular alternative for a wide range of applications. However, the variety of possible applications in turn makes the search for the right lift table type and equipment more complicated.
To make your tandem lift table decision as part of your enquiry as easy as possible, we will guide you step by step through the configuration of a scissor lift table and explain the different options available.
Of course we can also discuss the optimal solution on the phone .
Every enquiry is checked by a competent employee so that you get the ideal type that meets your needs. Conflicting information is clarified quickly and easily so that you have the right scissor lift at your premises in the end.
Frequently asked questions & our answers ...
Where is the headquarters of Janzen Lifttechnik GmbH?
We are at home in the rural Emsland, more precisely in Niederlangen a part of the Lathen municipality directly on the A31 motorway. This means that we are roughly halfway between North Rhine-Westphalia and the North Sea, right on the Dutch border.
Our region is known, among other things, for the various nature reserves, the well-developed cycle paths, the manufacture of cruise ships, as well as the headquarters of various distilleries.
Should you ever come to our region, we look forward to a visit in our Plant.
Where are the lifting tables and elevators produced?
With us, not only does the final assembly take place in Germany, but we also cover the entire production chain from construction through steel construction to final assembly in our plant in Niederlangen. With us you get a real 'Made in Germany'.
Is the offer aimed only at traders or also at private individuals?
Even if our products are mainly used in an industrial environment, we naturally also offer them to private individuals.
Just give us a call or send us an inquiry and we will be happy to contact you.
Will I receive a drawing before production starts?
In any case. To ensure that you get the product that you really want, we provide you with an approval drawing before production begins. In addition to the actual product, this also includes the installation situation. As the saying goes, a picture is worth a thousand words.
Can I get a CAD model?
You can receive a (greatly) simplified CAD model of our standard products before ordering. After the order and the construction phase, we can also provide you with CAD models of the individual special lifting tables. A data exchange is possible in all common formats (.stp, .dxf, .dwg etc.).
Where can you deliver to?
In principle, we deliver everywhere. Our products can be found not only in large parts of Europe, but also in Asia and South America. However, the focus of our activity is Germany and our neighboring countries.
Is it possible to assemble in the same area?
On request, we can assemble our systems throughout Germany and our neighboring countries.
Unfortunately, the only exception is Switzerland. Due to some changes in the law within Switzerland, installation is no longer economical, so you have to switch to local companies. Of course, we are happy to assist you with the installation with our specialist knowledge.
