Alfacon Solutions has been helping clients specify the correct container and pallet handling devices for more than 40 years. The team of qualified engineers has the technical ability and experience to properly recommend the best ergonomic solution for every application from distribution centers to manufacturing plant floors. Engineers travel to customers’ facilities and perform a complete ergonomic evaluation, saving both time and money.
Some of the safety products which may be added to a customized or standard lift table are much easier to add at the factory than in the field. It is wise to consider safety needs up front when selecting products. Alfacon engineers ask helpful safety questions that will drive the selection of the best industrial lift table for manufacturer’s needs.
Simple questions such as, “Is a toe guard required” can make a big difference in safety. This is very common in pit mounted applications. Customers can select toe sensors or a beveled toe guard. Lift table toe guards can include an audible alarm or flashing light required when the lift table is in motion. Increasingly, Alfacon Solutions’ engineering team sees safety departments requiring this feature.
Most lift tables come standard with a push button pendant or foot operated switch. Other options include wall mounted push buttons and maintained controls. Each has advantages, but customers must identify the preference based on process and throughput. The table can also be controlled by other means such as a PLC. This may require additional hardware and outputs.
