With scissor lift tables, you can raise palletised or individual goods to an ergonomic working height and even further to higher storage areas. These lift tables also enable you to move loads over short distances. With our buying guide, you can choose the most suitable type of scissor lift table available for your needs in our UK store.
Scissor lift tables can be essential tools in warehouses, intralogistics, manufacturing facilities and sales areas. They can be used to lift and lower goods onto or into various load carriers such as pallets, packaging or pallet boxes. There are different types of scissor lift tables available including: static and mobile scissor lift tables, which can be raised manually, electrically, or with compressed air, depending on the model. Here is an overview of the possible applications of the lift tables available from Jungheinrich PROFISHOP:
We offer a wide range of scissor lift tables with varying lifting capacity, lifting range, and other parameters. To find the lift table that suits your needs, consider the following important selection criteria:
To lift and, if necessary, move goods and products safely and securely on hydraulic scissor lift tables, the table must be loaded only up to their specified maximum load capacity. When choosing a suitable type of lifting table, you should consider the peak loads that occur in your operation as a basis for your decision. Our available scissor lift platform trucks offer a maximum lifting capacity of approximately 1000kg, depending on the model. The static scissor lift tables in our range offer a lifting capacity of up to 8000kg making them ideal for the vertical transportation of heavy loads.
Another factor to consider when choosing a suitable hydraulic scissor lift table is how the weight will be distributed on the platform. For example, a lift table with a load capacity of 1000kg may not be sufficient to hold a weight of 1000kg if the load is not evenly distributed on the platform. This is due to the interplay of force and the lever arm: depending on where the load is located on the platform, the frame of the table will be loaded differently. To avoid damage, DIN EN 1570-1 provides guidelines on this matter:
Whether a scissor lift table is suitable for your operational processes depends not only on its load capacity but also on its lifting height. This can vary depending on the type of scissor mechanism or the length of the scissor frame.
270 to 780mm
80 to 840mm
190 to 850mm
150 to 1880mm
80 to 2700mm
270 to 2700mm
368 to 1300mm
216 to 1800mm
The scissor lift tables available from our UK store are suitable for use in dry indoor areas. However, some models also allow for use in damp or corrosive indoor environments or outdoor areas exposed to various weather conditions. These include our stainless steel scissor lift pallet trucks. These lifting trucks are corrosion-resistant and also resistant to many aggressive alkalis, acids and saltwater.
To load or unload goods onto or from the scissor lifting platform, usually material handling equipment such as pallet trucks, or stacker trucks are used. Depending on the load weight, local conditions and the functions of the lifting table, the following options are possible:
Scissor lift tables can be used either in a mobile or stationary manner depending on their design. The main difference between the variants lies in the load capacity and achievable lifting heights: mobile scissor lift tables have smaller platforms and a lower load capacity compared to static scissor lift tables. They also usually do not reach the same lifting heights as static models. However, they can be easily moved over short distances and thus offer versatile application possibilities.
In contrast, static lift tables can be installed permanently on the ground or even in pits. As these models can handle high load capacities and lifting heights, heavy loads or even material handling equipment can be transported vertically using them.
At Jungheinrich PROFISHOP, you can buy scissor lift tables with various lifting drives. The drive system suitable for your operation depends on the load capacity, tasks, and application area required of the lift table. Depending on the drive system required, there are various advantages and disadvantages for each lifting function:
Our robust scissor lift tables are available with certain safety features depending on their intended use and individual function requirements:
The lifting or lowering movement only takes place if the corresponding switch of the control element is pressed continuously.
The switch is attached to the control unit: when it is flipped, all operations and the power supply are immediately interrupted.
The bar is located on the underside of the platform and triggers when touched as this means the specified foot space has not been maintained. When triggered, the lifting or lowering movement is stopped immediately.
The profiled aluminium surfaces are a non-slip element for platforms on which unevenly distributed or dynamic loads are moved.
In the event of a defect in the drive train, a hydraulic catch cylinder catches the raised load platform.
Overpressure is automatically dissipated via the valve: This prevents damage or leaks to adjusting screws, lines or hoses.
The heat protection function prevents electrical systems from overheating and thus avoids short circuits or cable fires.
A lift table with a key switch can only be operated by inserting a key. This means that the device can only be put into operation by authorized personnel.
The scissor lift tables in our range meet all required safety standards and are tested and certified according to the European Standard BS EN 1570. The equipment is exclusively made from high-quality materials such as powder-coated profile steel, solid construction or tool steel (ST52 or ST37) and is excellently processed. This makes the lift tables reliable and safe pieces of equipment with a long service life.
The static scissor lift platform tables available from our UK store enable you to raise and lower loads to various heights (depending on the model). For this purpose, the lift platform is mounted on at least two scissor-like supports that can be bolted to the ground or installed in pits. The scissor lift platforms are available in different designs, tailored to specific applications and can be expanded upon with accessories:
Scissor lift platform trucks are ideal for transporting goods, tools or manufacturing parts to the place of intended use and to raise or lower them to an ergonomically correct working height for picking. Depending on the model, this can be done with a spindle, manually via a foot lever or electrically. For easy transport, mobile scissor lift trucks are compact and equipped with smaller platforms than static scissor lift trucks.
Lift trucks can be moved using ergonomic push handles and smooth-running TPU or polyurethane rollers. The devices can be safely locked in position at the place of use with locking brakes. The scissor lift trucks in the Jungheinrich PROFISHOP range can achieve lifting heights of up to 1800mm and offer a load capacity of up to 1000kg. Depending on the lifting height and load capacity, the devices are equipped with single, double or tandem scissors.
Scissor lift tables offer versatile solutions for lifting and lowering goods on various load carriers such as pallets, containers or individual items. They are available as static scissor lift tables or mobile scissor lift tables. The advantages of using these lifting platforms lie primarily in their versatility and diverse applications:
Lift tables must always comply with the applicable safety requirements according to the Lifting Operations and Lifting Equipment Regulations 1998 (LOLER). Thorough examinations of the lifting equipment should be carried out in a number of situations including, before first use, during and after reinstallation, and in cases where the table is exposed to weather conditions that could cause deterioration. Depending on the type of lifting table and its area of application, the following safety features are also recommended:
Scissor lift tables should undergo regular maintenance to ensure that they are safe to use and in working order. The Provision and Use of Work Equipment Regulations 1998 (PUWER) requires that all lifting equipment be maintained in an efficient state and in good working condition. Although a machinery maintenance log is not required, it is recommended that one is recorded and kept up to date. Maintenance work that is important for a lifting table is also listed in the operating instructions for the device. There you will also find further information on recommended maintenance intervals for the specific piece of equipment.
