Choose Your Hydraulic Lift Table
Hydraulic Lift Tables allow workers to position work at the most comfortable convenient height for easy, strain-free access. With a wide range of capacities, lifting heights, platform sizes and other options, including portability, turntables and hand pallet truck accessibilty, there are literally millions of configurations of ergonomic lift tables available.
Hydraulic Lift Tables FAQs
A hydraulic lift table (sometimes mispelled as hydralic lift table or hydrolic lift table) is a device used to raise and lower heavy loads in various industrial and commercial applications. It consists of a platform or table that is supported by a scissor-like mechanism, and hydraulic cylinders are used to provide the lifting force.
The hydraulic table lift operates by using a hydraulic system, which includes a pump, cylinders, and control valves. When the hydraulic pump is activated, it pressurizes the hydraulic fluid, which then transfers the force to the cylinders. The cylinders extends, causing the scissor mechanism to expand, and as a result, the platform rises.
Hydraulic lift tables offer several advantages. They provide a stable and secure platform for lifting heavy loads, allowing for you to position your work load at different heights. They are typically operated using simple controls, such as buttons or levers, and can be adjusted to various lifting heights. Additionally, lift table hydraulics can enhance workplace safety by reducing the risk of manual lifting injuries and providing a more ergonomic working environment.
Standard lift tables
We offer a wide range of standard size models. There are three lines that come with standard sizing. Our LK, LX and compact lines.
Mobile lift tables
Some models can have a mobile cart added to the unit for mobility while others are stationary hydraulic platform lifts.
Rotating lift tables or work positioners
There are some units available that you can add a rotating platform to. This will allow you to rotate the load at any height.
Low-profile lift tables
We offer our LX line of low-profile tables.
Stainless steel lift tables
We no longer offer lift tables in SS.
Ground entry lift tables
We offer our LX line that can come with a ramp to load and unload the table from ground level.
Multi-stage lift tables
We offer a few double-scissor lift options. Please contact a representative for available options.
Our hydraulic lift tables have a wide range of lifting capacities. The capacity will be based on the model you order. Lifting capacities vary from 440 lbs to 5,000 lbs.
Depending on the model there are various safety features that are standard on the unit or can be added to the unit. The most common safety features related to Bishamaon products is a deadman switch for the controller, relief valve in hydraulics and the option for safety skirting.
Each unit will come with a maintenance manual. The manual will advise on what needs to be done to take care of your unit.
Depending on the specific model there is some customization available to fit your specific need.
These tables are commonly used in industries such as manufacturing, warehousing, logistics, and maintenance. They provide a safer and more efficient alternative to manual lifting and can help improve productivity while reducing the risk of injury associated with heavy lifting tasks.
Hydraulic refers to machinery that uses liquid in a confined space under pressure. Scissor refers to how the lifting supports cross each other and creates a scissor action as they move. Most if not all hydraulic lifts are made with a scissor mechanism.
