Snorkel Scissor Lifts

Snorkel Scissor Lifts

Platforms that utilize a scissor-like mechanism in order to lower and raise the apparatus are known as scissor lifts. Normally, this particular type of material handling machine only moves vertically. The apparatus that is responsible for raising and lowering the scissor lift is made from folding and linked supports which are designed in an x-shaped or crisscross pattern pattern.

By applying pressure to the outside of the lowest set of supports, upward motion is achieved by extending the crossing pattern, the platform propels in a vertical way. Product specifications for scissor lifts comprise stroke, width, length and capacity. The difference between the equipment's completely raised and completely lowered position is called the stroke. The longest dimension of the platform is the length. Capacity is the maximum load or force supported by the scissor lift. The narrowest dimension of the lift is known as its width.

On the market there are a variety of different kinds of scissor lifts. Some choices comprise dock lifts, personnel lifts, table lifts, vehicle lifts and pallet trucks. Utility containers or carts are round or rectangular devices which have wheels. These equipment items are utilized in general purpose instances and usually seen in bulk material transport.

Dock lifts refer to the particular scissor lifts which lower and raise workers or materials onto and off of loading docks. Table lifts are used to place and raise things for ergonomic access. Personnel lifts are used to lower and lift individuals to heights so they can store some materials or accomplish certain tasks and so forth. Pallet jacks or pallet trucks are carts or trucks which are outfitted with forks designed to engage pallet slots.

Scissor lifts are most commonly utilized as lift tables and as personnel lifts, they can be built into pallet jacks. In industrial settings, lift tables are chosen for lifting and positioning loads and materials. Personnel lifts are a part of the aerial lift category. Man lifts are another facet of aerial lifts that include MEWP or mobile elevated work platforms, bucket trucks and cherry pickers.
