Snorkel Scissor Lifts

Snorkel Scissor Lifts

Platforms which use a scissor-like mechanism in order to raise and lower the equipment are referred to as scissor lifts. Usually, this specific kind of material handling machine just moves vertically. The mechanism which is responsible for lowering and raising the scissor lift is made from folding and linked supports that are designed in a crisscross or an x-shaped pattern.

The platform propels in a vertical way by applying pressure to the outside of the lowest set of supports, causing upward motion by elongating the crossing pattern. The stroke, width, length and capacity or scissor lift are the most common product specifications. The difference between the equipment's completely raised and completely lowered position is called the stroke. The platform's longest dimension is referred to as the length. Capacity refers to the maximum load or force supported by the scissor lift. The narrowest dimension of the lift is its width.

On the market there are an array of different types of scissor lifts. Some options include dock lifts, personnel lifts, vehicle lifts, pallet trucks and table lifts. 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 are specially designed scissor lifts utilized mainly on loading docks to lift and lower employees. The table lift is used mainly to lift things for ergonomic access. Personnel lifts are used to lower and raise individuals to heights so they could store some materials or accomplish certain tasks etc. Pallet trucks or pallet jacks are carts or trucks which are equipped with forks designed to engage pallet slots.

Mainly, scissor lifts are commonly utilized as lift tables and as personnel lifts. In addition, they can be built into pallet jacks. Within industrial environments, lift tables are chosen for lifting and positioning loads and materials. Personnel lifts are a part of the aerial lift kind. Man lifts are a different facet of aerial lifts that comprise MEWP or mobile elevated work platforms, bucket trucks and cherry pickers.
