Lift Table or Manual Labour? Which Would You Choose?

For thousands of years, a manual workforce has been considered the ultimate tool in the race to colonise, industrialise and profit. Be it on a construction site or the factory floor, in a warehouse or an office, the presence of man has arguably made the single greatest contribution to any developing company or economy. Now though, advances in technology have usurped the human contribution in some areas such as car manufacture.

The presence of materials handling equipment on the factory floor is a case in point with certain items able to perform certain roles more efficiently and far safer than their human counterparts. It is important to remember however that in some cases, the appropriate equipment can actually aid the human contribution, helping to increase productivity and efficiency in a measurable way. The presence of a hydraulic lift table in a workspace is one such example of this harmony of man and machine.

Typically used to raise or lower goods or equipment, a lift table uses a scissor mechanism to raise large, unwieldy or heavy loads a certain (often short) distance. Lift tables are available in innumerable configurations and lend themselves to customisation. This makes them a perfect choice to suit very specific criteria, securing their place as an adaptable addition to any workforce. As they can be built to suit individual requirements, the range of possible uses is wide and varied. Common uses of lift tables include for vehicle loading and docking assistance, for ergonomic handling, materials positioning and pallet handling (they are used in a different way to pallet trucks).

Hydraulic lift tables are an invaluable asset to many an industrial workplace (commonly to be found in warehousing and distribution facilities, light assembly spaces, distribution hubs and more) by helping employees to work safer and faster. The presence of lift tables for manual and repetitive work can also be beneficial in helping to reduce back strain and other back problems amongst employees, in turn reducing days lost to sick leave and keeping sick pay costs down.

Ideal for use in scenarios such as order packing and work positioning, the same lift table can be used by any number of employees, helping a small 5 foot worker do the same job as a tall 6 foot worker as the hydraulic means the table can be adjusted to exactly the right height for each individual using the equipment in their daily duties
