Lift and tilt

Sizes include 32 by 48 inches, 48 by 72 inches and 72 by 96 inches. Normal tilt is 45 degrees. Retaining plate is 8 inches high. Air Technical Industries

Table safety

Guardian series lift tables include atypical safety features, such as a perimeter bar that stops lowering action when it contacts an obstruction. In addition, scissor arms stop entrapment, and a safety check valve prevents lowering in the event of a hose burst. The table can be used in above-floor or pit applications. Lift Products Inc.

Scissors lift

The Ergo self-leveler can position a container load of parts weighing up to 4,500 pounds at a comfortable work height under changing load conditions. The unit’s air bag elevates the load between 9 inches and 33 inches. It also performs in reverse, such as filling containers with components coming off a production line, gradually lowering as the container fills. Econo Lift
