Modular Lift Table
The challenge was to design a scissors lift table that could be readily converted from hydraulic to pneumatic power or changed between three different lifting capacities.
The solution was a modular design with bolted joints. Five basic frame sizes are utilized to build the seven standard configuration. These standard frames are then mated to one of fifteen standard table tops or optional modules such as a tilt table.
In addition to the mechanical design, we also conducted
Finite Element Analysis of many components and certified the load testing of the completed units.
