For raising materials up to workers who assemble products while located on elevated platforms, a double-stacked pneumatic scissor lift table is equipped with a riser. The lift provides product to the worker’s platform while ensuring proper ergonomics and a constant line rate. It also eliminates the need to step down from the platform to retrieve parts. The system has a 4,000-pound capacity and rises to 94 inches in less than 10 seconds. Features include captured roller wheels and pedestal-mounted controls.
