Scissor lift platforms make it easy to lift palletised or individual goods to an ergonomic working height or to higher storage areas. Depending on the model and function, these electric lifting platforms can also be a practical addition to an automated process in a warehouse or industrial building. Use our buying guide to find the right scissor lift table for your needs.
The scissor lifts available from Jungheinrich PROFISHOP enable you to lift loads on or in various load carriers such as pallets, outer packaging or pallet boxes to ergonomic working heights and higher. Mounted on at least two scissor-like beams, the lifting platform can either be screwed into the ground or installed in a pit for optimal use.
Our scissor lift platforms are available with different constructions, so they can conveniently be adapted to specific areas of application. Depending on the model, their lifting function works electrically or using compressed air and they are suitable for use in a range of applications including:
In our range you will find a large selection of different scissor lift platforms which differ in their lifting range, load capacity and other parameters. In order to find the scissor work platform that suits your needs, there are some important selection criteria to consider:
In order to be able to lift and lower goods and merchandise safely and stably, a scissor lift platform may only be loaded with a specified maximum load. When selecting a suitable platform lift, you should therefore use the peak loads that occur in your operating process as the basis for your decision. The scissor lift platforms from our range offer a load capacity of up to 1000kg, depending on the model, and are therefore ideal for the vertical lifting of heavy loads.
When choosing a lifting platform with a suitable load capacity, the most important thing to take note of is how the weight will be distributed on the platform. For example, a scissor lift platform with a load capacity of 1000kg may no longer be sufficient for a load weight of 1000kg if the load is not evenly distributed on the platform. This is due to the interaction of the force arm and the lever arm: depending on where the load is placed on the platform, the scissor mechanics of the device are loaded differently. To prevent damage, BS EN 1570-1 specifies the following:
Whether a large or small lifting platform fits into your operating procedure depends not only on the load capacity but also on the lifting height. This can vary depending on the type and length of the scissor frame. At Jungheinrich PROFISHOP you can buy scissor lift platforms with a lifting height of up to 840mm. This enables you to adjust the platform to any desired ergonomic working height and higher or lower settings when needed.
The scissor work platforms available in our store are suitable for use in dry indoor areas. However, some designs also allow use in damp or corrosive indoor areas or outdoor areas exposed to the weather. Designed for stationary use, our scissor lift platforms can be floor mounted or installed inside a pit. However, some units can also be picked up and moved by means of transport lugs for cranes or drive-in lugs for stacker trucks.
Our scissor lift platforms feature an electro-hydraulic lifting function which is operated by an electronic control unit. This requires minimal effort for operation and makes it easy to adjust the height of the scissor lift, with or without a load. Some of our models feature an external control unit, which enables device operation from a safe distance. Inspection supports are also fitted to ensure accidental lowering does not occur during servicing, while the protective frame provides additional safety.
Depending on the model you choose, the electronic scissor lift tables in our range are available with the following safety features:
The emergency disconnect switch is attached to the operating unit: when pressed, all movements are immediately interrupted, as well as the power supply if necessary.
The foot protection contact strip is located on the underside of the platform and triggers when touched if the specified foot clearance is not maintained. When triggered, the lifting or lowering movement is stopped immediately.
The heat protection prevents electrical systems from overheating and thus avoids short circuits or cable fires.
A scissor lift with a key switch can only be operated by inserting a key. This means that the unit can only be put into operation by authorised personnel.
The scissor lift platforms in our range meet all required safety standards and are tested and certified according to BS EN 1570 of the European Committee for Standardisation (CEN). The devices are exclusively made of high-quality materials, such as powder-coated profile steel or tool steel and are processed to a high standard. This ensures for reliable and safe equipment that offers a long service life.
You can buy flat scissor lifts from us with closed, U-shaped or E-shaped load platforms. This allows the load carriers of industrial trucks to drive directly into the recesses and load or unload the platform. Due to their low lifting height, the units are ideal for use as worktables or workbenches at an ergonomic working height. At a glance, the features of our flat scissor lift platform include:
The single scissor lift tables from our range are equipped with a closed load platform made of smooth sheet steel. The platform can be continuously adjusted in height. For maximum work safety, the upper and lower lifting positions can be mechanically locked. Some models are available with a key switch to ensure that only authorised personnel can operate the device.
Lift platforms can be used to lift and lower goods or merchandise. For stability during operation, lift tables are available as stationary equipment that can be fixed to the ground or lowered into a pit. Specific advantages of lift tables lie primarily in their wide range of application (depending on the model). They can be used:
When choosing a lifting platform, it is important to find one with the right maximum loading capacity. You should take note of the peak load requirements that are usually required within your operating process and use this as the basis for your decision. It is very important to understand how weight is distributed on the platform and how this can affect lifting capacity.
In principle, large and small scissor lift platforms can be used for lifting and lowering pallets – as long as they have a sufficiently large platform and a suitable load capacity. However, lifting and lowering palletised goods is particularly ergonomic with flat scissor lifts: the forks of pallet or stacker trucks can be inserted into the recesses of the U- and E-shaped platforms of flat scissor lifts and loads can thus be lowered directly above the platform.
