Low-profile lift table

by Inside Logistics Online Staff

LiftMat low profile lift tables from Southworth Products have a lowered height of just 3.25 inches, substantially lower than conventional lift tables.

Suited for palletizing, the LiftMat gives workers unobstructed access to all four sides of a palletized load. As boxes are added or removed, the platform is raised or lowered to the most comfortable height with a powered foot switch, or a hand-held push-button remote. The need for bending and stretching is eliminated, reducing worker fatigue and minimizing the risk of injuries.

Some units can be equipped with an optional turntable which sits essentially flush to the platform and allows users to spin the load so they can remain in one position throughout the entire loading and unloading process. A rotational lock prevents the turntable from spinning when not use.

The lift’s capacity is 2,200 pounds with a raised height of 31.5 inches. A full-perimeter toe guard stops downward travel if the lift comes in contact with any obstruction. An optional ramp allows workers to load and unload the platform with a hand pallet jack making the LiftMat useful in areas that can’t be accessed by a forklift.

The LiftMat uses an external power unit that comes prewired with a cord and plug for 115-volt power. Platforms sizes from 24 by 60 inches up to 48 by 96 inches are available.
