Turntables reduce operator fatigue
Tecmach supplied a series of scissor lift tables which have indexing turntables to improve efficiency and safer manual handling in a manufacturing facility.
It was part of a drive to reduce operator fatigue when transferring finished steel components from automated CNC machine onto trays on stillage.
The scissor lift tables in both one and two tonne versions have a heavy duty rectangular turntable on which the steel transport stillage can easily be loaded located. The turntable has eight detent indexing positions, so the operator can build the layers uniformly while easily reaching the entire stacking area without excessive stretching. This reduces operator fatigue and removes the risk of damage to the product as it can easily be positioned without contact with adjacent components.
The turntable has electronic position detection, so the scissor lift table can only be lowed when the turntable is correctly aligned with the platform, this is part of the inclusive safety feature that eliminate any risk of a trap point.
Control of the platform and loading height is by a heavy duty cast alloy foot switch so that the operator always have their hands free.
Tecmach scissor lifts can offer a full range of accessories that assist customers best their mechanical handling requirements.
