One of the most common applications for scissor lifts is to raise and lower pallets to allow operators to stack or de-stack pallets ergonomically. Floor mounted or pit mounted units can be specified. Saxon low profile scissor lifts can be used without the need for pits, depending on the type of pallets used.
The lifts can be equipped with conveyors and turntables for greater flexibility. Typical applications include end of line palletising and machine feeding.
The manual handling regulations dictate how loads can be handled and the weight restrictions which apply with the specific aim of reducing Musculoskeletal Disorders. Following risk assessments on manual handling tasks scissor lifts are frequently used to reduce and remove the risk associated with manual handling.
