Lifting tables are used for a variety of reasons. Nearly all major industries have a use for lifting tables in one way or another.
For example, they are extensively used as a key part of the workplace in construction work, architecture planning, system integration departments, automobile industry, energy industry, logistics, food and beverages, pharmaceuticals, and so on.
The most common use of lifting tables is to, well, lift.
Materials that are very heavy to manually lift require a lifting table. This is a requirement not limited by industry.
Apart from that, lifting tables are also used for:
- Tending to patients and safely transporting them.
- Loading and unloading of materials to and from vehicles or within a warehouse.
- Goods transportation from point A to point B.
- Reaching higher or hard-to-reach places in workshops, factories, warehouses, etc.
- Moving workers up during construction or construction-related work.
As a rule of thumb, most physically demanding jobs and workplaces can use a lifting table. They come in various sizes and shapes and with different capabilities. You will find something appropriate for you if you go to a reliable manufacturer.
Lifting tables work on hydraulics and as such, their usage permeates industries and workspaces. Any place that can make use of hydraulics can use a lifting table.
For example, lifting tables are extensively used in vehicle loading and docking mechanisms. They are also great for facilitating mobility-impaired access.
Apart from that, many types of work like woodworking or metalworking require a certain stance or posture to be the most effective. For the most part, this posture depends on the worker. However, it is generally a good idea to further improve the productivity, efficiency, and easiness of such work by additionally positioning the material being worked on. And that can be easily done with the help of a lifting table. Positioning material in both, manual work and machine feeding applications improves the speed of work, production rate, as well as ergonomics of handling it.
Conveyor systems also need lifting tables for load positioning. Lifting tables are also used in furniture upholstery, roll cage handling, floor-level loading, printing work, heavy machinery applications and handling, and more.
Trying to make an exhaustive list of all industries and processes that require a lifting table is a futile exercise. Suffice it to say that lifting tables are extremely versatile, flexible, and robust. They can be used to solve a variety of issues regardless of the type of work.
Things to look out for can include:
- Surface treatment (painted, galvanized, stainless, etc.).
- Total capacity (in case you have specific requirements).
- Closed height and total height (for space management and mobility purposes).
- Dimensions (length and width need to be factored in).
Ideally, you want to pick a lifting tables manufacturer that is both reliable and specialized. Specialized providers factor in your unique requirements. They do not just produce run-of-the-mill; one size fits all lifting tables. A unique lifting table that suits your workplace is especially important to maximize efficiency, reliability, and productivity.
