The challenge

In the highly dynamic production environment of our valued customer, TRILUX GmbH & Co KG, we were faced with the challenging task of optimizing the efficiency and safety of material transport between two production halls with a height difference. The previous solution, a conventional lift table, was increasingly prone to failure and could no longer meet the increasing demands for flexibility, throughput and occupational safety. This limitation led to bottlenecks in production and posed a risk of downtime. An innovative, reliable and customized solution was urgently needed to ensure continuous operation and increase productivity.

The solution

Our response to this challenge was the development and implementation of a state-of-the-art tandem scissor lift table. With platform dimensions of 5000 x 2000 mm and an effective lifting height of 1370 mm, it was specifically designed to seamlessly connect the two production levels and optimize the material flow. The key to success lay in the detailed adaptation to the specific needs of our customer.

Maximized occupational safety: Automatic roll-off protection on three sides and fall protection on the narrow sides, together with a safety portal for the upper level, minimize the risk of accidents at work and ensure safe operation.
Optimized operating flow: Seamless and efficient transportation between levels reduces waiting times and improves overall operational logistics, resulting in faster order processing.

Customization: By integrating reinforcement profiles underneath the platform and a job-specific safety chain curtain, the lift table ensures exceptional stability and safety, even under the most demanding load conditions.

Increased throughput capacity: The size and load-bearing capacity of the lift table enable the transportation of industrial trucks together with the transport containers for lamps, which leads to a significant increase in productivity.

How to successfully assemble a lift table

The tailor-made solution for our customer underlines our focus on specific requirements and our commitment to improving production processes and the working environment through innovative lifting technology. Professional assembly is the cornerstone of such a solution to guarantee fast and safe commissioning. Thus, the use of this tandem scissor lift table can not only overcome technical challenges, but also create significant added value for the customer by increasing safety, efficiency and productivity.

1. Preparations at the installation site

The floor or the pit (Download: pit layout) must have a smooth and level surface for the installation of the lift table, it is recommended that edge protection is fitted and heavy-duty anchors are used. Empty conduits are used for the supply and control lines and drainage provided by the customer to prevent moisture. The position of the unit should be defined for this purpose. On-site supply lines require sufficient length, a lockable main switch and appropriate fuses. Please ensure that fall and access protection is provided!

2. Delivery and unloading

At the time of delivery, the unloading location should be freely accessible and a suitable lifting aid with operator should be available. Instructions for proper unloading must be taken from the documentation in advance. In particular, suitable lifting and securing equipment must be used. Before unloading and acknowledging the accompanying documents, the goods must be checked to ensure that they are intact and a note must be made if necessary.

3.  In-house transportation to the installation site

The transport route to the installation site should be defined before unloading. The corridor route must be checked for sufficient height, width and maneuvering space. Under certain circumstances, keys should be kept ready for doors and gates. During transportation, care must be taken to ensure that the load is correctly secured by qualified personnel. If the transport is obstructed by the company, this must be announced accordingly in order to keep operational disruptions to a minimum.

4. It all depends on professional installation

In accordance with the documentation, the lift table must only be lifted using eyebolts at the lifting points provided; lifting straps under the platform can damage safety equipment and the cylinders. Supply lines, hydraulic hoses and the contact protection strip must also be protected from damage before lifting and lowering into the pit. Furthermore, care must be taken to ensure correct alignment and level positioning. Depending on the ground conditions, heavy-duty or adhesive anchors can be used for fastening.

5. Commissioning and safety check

After mechanical installation, the electrical connection must be carried out by suitably qualified personnel. Beforehand, the installation site should be cordoned off and secured with appropriate signage (“trial operation”). The safety measures should only be removed after an electrical and mechanical function and safety check, as well as all on-site safeguards (railings etc.). Approval is given during final acceptance.

6. Final acceptance and maintenance

Handover takes place with an installation and final acceptance report, as well as instruction of the operating personnel, who must be present at the end of the installation work. The lift table is then released for operation and ready for use. If an inspection is required in accordance with the German Ordinance on Industrial Safety and Health, we will be happy to accompany this for you. In addition, the system should be inspected and serviced annually.
