What is a tandem lift table?

The basic structure of a tandem lift table is similar to that of a simple scissor lift table. It consists, in the simplest case, of:

  • The platform for load pick up.
  • The scissors for the lifting and lowering movement.
  • The subframe for a secure stand.

In contrast to the simple version, the tandem lift table has two horizontally arranged scissor sets. Especially with very long platforms and relatively low lifting heights, this design is more cost-effective than the version with just one large scissor.

Additionally, tandem lift tables have two separate subframes. The mechanical connection of the scissor sets is solely through the platform. This way, no constraining forces are exerted.

That our tandem lift tables are also suitable for off-center loads is demonstrated in the following video:

How is the synchronisation achieved?

Hydraulic oil can be considered convenient; it always seeks the path of least resistance. However, in the case of tandem lift tables, this can be problematic for the following reason:

As it's nearly impossible to load a lift table perfectly evenly, the two scissor sets of the tandem lift table are subjected to uneven stress. Due to the inclination of the hydraulic oil to take the easier path, the scissor set that is less loaded will always extend first. This can result in the platform not rising evenly and possibly being lifted slightly tilted.

To avoid this, there are two options:

  1. The scissor sets of the tandem lift table are mounted as close together as possible, or
  2. it must be ensured that each cylinder receives the same amount of oil.

Depending on the specific application, we choose either the first or the second solution. For example, if the dimensions of the tandem lift table guarantee that the scissor sets adequately support the platform, the first version is implemented. However, if the scissors are too far apart, we install a static flow divider. This ensures a completely even lifting movement without the need for complex and costly control systems or corresponding sensors.

What are tandem lift tables used for?

Tandem lift tables are particularly suitable for handling long and heavy goods. They are versatile and used in various applications, including:

  • Ergonomic workstations: Long materials such as pipes, bars, strips, or boards can be easily and comfortably lifted to a convenient working height.
  • Loading lift tables: Warehouses, distribution centers, and supermarkets use tandem lift tables to safely and efficiently transport heavy or bulky goods between different levels.
  • Assembly lift tables: Tandem lift tables facilitate the lifting and precise positioning of heavy assemblies or vehicles, for example, for installation or maintenance work.
  • Elevating work platforms: For assembly work on long components, individuals are raised to a comfortable working height. Thanks to work surfaces, carrying tools and materials is easily manageable.

In addition, there are also other use cases. An example is the integration into conveyor lines, similar to the tandem lift table in the following video:

How to choose the right lift table?

Thanks to the diverse customization and expansion possibilities, the scissor lift table proves to be a popular option for various applications. However, the wide range of uses also makes the selection of the right type of lift table with the appropriate features more complex.

Do you need an advice?

The possible uses of scissor lift tables are just as diverse as their equipment variants. On the one hand, this variety of variants is nice, on the other hand, it naturally makes it difficult to correctly select the right lifting table.
