Bishamon Lifts Tables FAQs

Lift tables allow workers to position work at the most comfortable, convenient height for easy, strain-free access. They provide a smart, ergonomic solution for boosting productivity and improving workplace safety because of their wide range of capacities, platform sizes and options for lifting heights.

A lift table uses a mechanism called scissor legs or a hydraulic system. The table is supported by a set of interconnected scissor legs that are able to extend or retract. Activation of the hydraulic pump pressurizes the hydraulic fluid, which is then directed into the lift cylinder. As fluid enters the cylinder, it causes the scissor legs to extend, which raises the platform to the desired height. The lifting capacity of a lift table is determined by its design and hydraulic system, which allows it to handle a range of weights.

Each type of lift table is designed for a specific purpose.

Hydraulic lift tables: These lift tables use hydraulic cylinders and a fluid-filled system to raise and lower the platform. They provide a smooth and controlled lifting motion and can handle heavy loads. 

Electric lift tables: Electric lift tables use an electric motor to power the lifting mechanism. Some electric lift tables are quiet and energy=efficient and suitable for lighter loads. 

Scissor lift tables: Scissor lift tables use a scissor-like mechanism to raise or lower the platform vertically.  The scissor lift mechanism includes a series of connected folding supports, resembling a scissors, that extend and retract, through hydraulics or an electric motor. This versatile  lift offers stability and support for heavy loads as well as ergonomic positioning to different heights and safety features. When not being used, scissor lift tables can collapse to a more compact size, which saves floor space in the workplace. 

Pallet lift tables: Lift tables for pallets are a specific type of lift table designed to handle loads on pallets. Pallet lift tables are often used in warehouses, distribution centers, and industrial settings for storage or transportation. They have a sturdy platform and their dimensions match standard pallet sizes. The platform has rollers that help secure the pallet during lifting and lowering. These lift tables allow for easy access and eliminate the need for manual labor or forklifts. Some include safety features like safety skirts, adjustable heights, tilt functions or rotation.

Pallet lift tables can be used in a wide range of industries that require lifting, positioning or transporting heavy loads.

  • Manufacturing: Lift tables are used for loading and unloading heavy materials, positioning workpieces, for assembly or processing and for facilitating ergonomic work heights.
  • Warehousing and logistics: Lift tables are used for lifting pallets, containers, or lifting heavy items to different heights for storage or transportation.
  • Automotive: Lift tables allow mechanics to elevate cars and trucks so they can be repaired or serviced underneath.
  • Construction: Lift tables can elevate heavy building materials, equipment or tools on construction sites and make them easier to transport.
  • Retail and E-commerce: Lift tables are used in distribution centers and warehouses to handle inventory management and order fulfillment, to assist with sorting, packing and moving merchandise.
  • Agriculture: Lift tables can load or unload things like heavy produce, bales of hay or livestock.
  • Medical and Healthcare: In medical facilities, lift tables are helpful for transferring patients from beds to stretchers, or enabling safe and efficient handling of medical equipment.

Lift tables increase workplace safety. They reduce the need for heavy lifting and are able to lift heavier loads than humans. They can lift faster than a human team which results in an overall faster process. Additionally, they offer an ergonomic solution for working at different heights while reducing the risk of strains and injuries that may result from manual lifting. They increase productivity and reduce injuries.

They are designed with safety features to prevent accidents and ensure protection. The safety features may include safety rails, anti-slip platforms, emergency stop buttons, overload protection and safety locks to secure the table at the desired height.

Here are some important factors to consider when choosing a lift table:

Load capacity: Determine the maximum weight you need to lift. Select one that can handle your intended load capacity comfortably without exceeding its limits. 

Height range: Think about the height ranges you need to work with. Choose a lift table that accommodates your requirements.

Platform size and shape: Evaluate the dimensions and shape of the platform you need. Make sure it provides enough space for your intended load or operation. Some tables offer customization options to suit specific needs.  

Power source: Electric lift tables offer easier and more control than manual types which require human effort to operate the hydraulic system.

Safety features: Look for safety features like safety rails, anti-slip platforms, emergency stop-buttons, safety locks, and overload protection to enhance safety and minimize the risk of accidents. 

Mobility: If you need mobility, tables with wheels or castors offer easy maneuverability. 

Durability and quality: Choose a lift table made from reliable and sturdy materials so it will withstand the demands of your specific application. 

Budget: Consider your budget and make an informed decision when you are purchasing a lift table. There are many different features, prices, and varying degrees of quality. 

Some lift table manufacturers offer choices in platform sizes and shapes to suit your needs. Some offer add-on accessories or solutions for integration with other equipment.

To ensure safe and reliable operation of lift tables, regular maintenance is required. Regular inspections will show any signs of damage, wear or malfunction. The hydraulic system, electrical components and scissor legs should be checked for leaks, cracks or loose connections. Lubrication should be applied to moving parts like hinges, joints and pivot points to minimize friction and ensure smooth operation. Regular cleaning prevents damage to the equipment and the hydraulic system. Annual in-depth inspections by a qualified technician are recommended. By law, the lift table should comply with local regulations.

In certain conditions, lift tables can be used outdoors. Many are designed for both indoor and outdoor use. Some have weather-resistant coatings, all-terrain capabilities and are made of durable construction materials. Check the specifications of your lift table to ensure its suitability for outdoor use.

Familiarize yourself with the controls. Most lift tables have buttons or switches to control the movements. Before operating the lift table, make sure the area surrounding the table is clear of obstacles and hazards. connect the lift table to the power source and turn it on. Position the load on the lift table platform. Ensure the load is properly secured and balanced and be aware of the weight capacity of the table. Stabilize the table and engage any locks or safety mechanisms to secure the lift table platform into place. Perform the necessary task at the desired height. After the task is completed, lower the platform and power off. Ensure all controls are in their default position and switch off the power. Always prioritize safety when using any industrial equipment.

Proper training is required to use a lift table and ensure the safety of the operators and the table.  Training typically includes learning how to operate the table correctly, understanding the controls, safety features and emergency stop procedures. Load handling and weight limitations need to be understood. Overloading the table can lead to accidents. Operators need to know what to do in emergency situations.

Lift tables are used for industrial or commercial purposes to lift heavy loads, Proper training to use a lift table is recommended for safety reasons. Other equipment may be better suited for personal lifting needs. Safety should be paramount when using lift tables.

Well-maintained lift tables can last from 10 to 20 years or longer as long as they have regular inspections, proper lubrication, and routine maintenance.
