Lift the work to the operator

ergonomic working with tecmach low profile scissor lift

Lift the work to the operator

A recent installation of adjustable height assembly benches using Tecmach low profile lift tables. The machine frames are wheeled onto the bench which is then raised to the correct height for the operator to install the sub-assemblies.  Each operation being undertaken at the comfortable working height set by the operator. Completed units are then wheeled off when the assembly bench is lowered to ground level. 

Some of the units have turntables so the operator can rotate the machine allowing easy access to all sides without having to move around the machine being assembled.

The result of installing adjustable height assembly benches has been improved productivity and a happier workforce. A win all round.

This welding bench is 3000 mm long on a tandem scissor mechanism.  The lift was tailored to fit the requirments of the customer who manufactures electrical control cabinets.

Features as standard our welding tables are 10 mm unpainted platform, earth bonding points, flexible conduit over cable and hoses to protect from welding and grinding sparks, platform safety ledge and hose break valves, hand pendant control.  This particular customer wanted an 45 mm overhang of the top plate to allow clamping of items to the edge.  The 10 mm plate allows tack welding of items during manufacture.

Scissor lift lifting fabric rolls in stillage at cutting station

Bring the work to the operator.

A Fabric supplier installed scissor lifts at their cutting work stations to reduce back injuries through lifting and twisting with handling heavy rolls of fabric. The fabric to be cut is moved to the cutting area in stillages and loaded on the scissor lift by the fork lift. The operator can then raise the stillage to a comfortable height to lift off the fabric roll. From a trial with one lift table the cutting area now has four since it proved to be a effective improvement to the working system and gives improved operator safety.
